Largest breakfast served on a single plate
- The Sun sets world record
LONDON, UK -- The Sun's canteen chef Adam
Clifford, 21, fried up a whopping 7.7lb (3.5kg) full English
breakfast at their offices-setting the world record for the
breakfast served on a single plate .

The Sun's massive traditional breakfast
contained a staggering 8,000 calories — more than THREE TIMES
the recommended daily limit for a man.
Chef Adam: "It's the biggest meal I've
ever seen, let alone cooked. This Largest
breakfast served on a single plate would certainly
set you up for the day, and probably the rest of the week,
too. "I'm going to hang the certificate in the canteen for
all to see."

Lup Fun Yau, 36 (who holds the world record for eating the
most donuts in three minutes) was the lucky recipient of the
breakfast served on a single plate — but failed in
his brave bid to guzzle the ENTIRE thing.
Eating champ Lup said: "Of all
the challenges I've done, this was the hardest. The black
pudding and the toast were the real killers. "I started off
well, and got through about a third of the food in a few minutes.
But then I just hit a brick wall. "I hadn't eaten for hours
to prepare, but I kind of went past the phase of being hungry.
I'm gutted I didn't get it all down."
The Guinness world record for the biggest
commercially available breakfast was recently won by Mario's
Café in Bolton, where they serve up a giant 6.5lb (2.9kg)
plate of bacon and eggs for £10.95. If you eat all of it in
20 minutes, it's free.
Full English breakfasts are known
as the world's greatest hangover cure. The Sun's record attempt
for the Largest
breakfast served on a single plate was organised to
mark the release of Bradley Cooper movie The Hangover on DVD,
Blu-ray and download.
