California Restaurant Creates a 222 Pound Cheeseburger

I Can Has Giant Cheezburger?

I'll admit it, I like a little extra cheese on my cheeseburger. While I've been known to throw an extra slice on the burger, I have never in my life thought of preparing a cheeseburger with 480 slices of cheese. Apparently I'm not a big idea kind of person like the folks at Fat's Grill in Stockton, California.


Earlier this week the team at Fat's decided to break the California record and created a 222 pound cheeseburger that used 40 pounds of tomatoes, 19 heads of lettuce, 12 pounds of condiments — mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup — and 480 slices of cheese.

The team wasn't really trying to break any records, they just thought it would be fun to do. Once they completed it, they gave it away to customers for free.
