World’s Largest Omelet 2011 Guinness World Record setting 6-ton omelet.
Turkish chefs were welcomed into the annals of Guinness World Records today by beating 110,000 eggs into an omelet the size of a Manhattan apartment.
The feat took 432 liters of oil, 10 chefs, 50 cooks, and at least one chicken.
The Turkish Egg Producers Association staged the event to promote eggs as a healthy primary food source. Said the association’s president, Derya Pala: “After seeing our record-breaking omelet we hope that more people will be encouraged to make eggs a greater part of their diet.”
No word on whether bystanders’ composite cholesterol level spiked during the cook-off, but witnesses did report a low, gutteral groan from the world’s vegans.
The former record for the World’s Largest Omelet, held by cooks in Cape Town, was a kid meal-friendly 3.625 tons.
