Team Win Guinness World Record For Creating The Largest Ever Vegan Burger

A team in Northern Ireland has been given a Guinness World Record for creating the largest vegan burger ever made.

It took Finnebrogue Artisan nearly nine hours to whip up this incredible plant-based meal and it certainly weighed in at an incredible number.

In order for it to be considered a burger, the rules stipulated that the team had to include one vegan patty, a bun large enough to cover said patty, at least one condiment, and at least one vegetable.

They went above and beyond to requirements and ordered a hell of a lot of ingredients to get their burger fired up.

The final product ended up including 10kgs of tomatoes, 4.5kgs of lettuce, 7kgs of vegan cheese, 4.4kgs of tobacco onions, 2kgs of pickles, 5kgs of vegan bacon slices and 5kgs of 'Naked Burger' sauce.

"We were set a target weight of 100kg (220 pounds), but we knew from the outset we wanted to exceed that," Sean Kearney, Finnebrogue Artisan's innovation process manager, said in a statement.

"The team included representatives from NPD, marketing, and engineering; and together we designed and built everything, including a swing to aid [in] turning the patty during cooking.

"That was perhaps the most challenging part of the record as we didn't want to break the patty."

The final product was a burger that tipped the scales at a little more than 160kgs - which is an incredible amount of food.

The Guinness World Records has another requirement when it comes to food challenges: applicants have to ensure the final product isn't just chucked in the bin after it's weighed.

So, the Finnebrogue Artisan decided to donate the humungous burger to charity, who ended up divvying up the meal into smaller pieces and handed them out to homeless people in the area.

According to a press release, the burger was the equivalent of 1,274 regular-sized 'Naked Evolution Burgers', which Finnebrogue Artisan i famous for.

That's one hell of a lot of burgers that have gone to people who are sleeping rough in the streets.
