'Pie-scraper' burger reaches new heights

Posted on Wednesday, 7 May, 2014 | Comment icon 22 comments

The immense creation contained ten individual burgers. Image Credit:
Takeaway boss John Clarkson put together a burger so large that it was as tall as a human being.
Measuring a whopping 1.6m in height and created by the same man who previously put together a giant deep-fried Ferrero Rocher, the artery-clogging burger stack is thought to be the tallest ever made.

Consisting of ten three quarter-pound cheeseburgers, the culinary marvel was infused with several fast food favorites including bacon sandwiches, spaghetti bolognese and even a pizza. In total the creation contained 30,000 calories, more than ten times the daily recommended intake.

"We've already created a full burger encased inside another burger so I thought why not try other things inside a burger?" said Clarkson who runs the Mister Eater's Eating Emporium in Lancashire. "Say, a pork pie, a chip butty or a pizza?"

Clarkson's wife Corinne has also been keen to try out new ideas in the kitchen.

"Everyone thinks we are a bit nuts but they aren’t surprised by the things we do now," she said. "It's a bit of fun. And it’s not just the gimmick, I can honestly say the pizza burger is delicious."

Not exactly fast-food then, is it? Nor is it a take-away. And judging by the picture in the article, some of the burgers weren't properly cooked. It's take-home if you have a fork lift and a truck!

What is the point in that? It's the old "I just want to do it for the hell of it". This should be filed under just becasue you can, doesn't mean you should.
