Café launches UK’s biggest full English with 150 items equalling 17,000 calories
A cafe has launched the UK’s biggest full English breakfast challenge, boasting 150 items.
The dish, which is served Shepherds Place Farm in Doncaster, has been named the ‘Terminator Armageddon’ by owner Ted Phillips, and weighs a staggering 20lbs.
It includes 15 jumbo Lincolnshire sausages (the equivalent to 30 regular sausages), 15 rashers of bacon, 15 hash browns, 15 fried eggs, 15 slices of black pudding, 15 slices of toast and fried bread with butter, 15 portions of mushrooms, 15 portions of baked beans and 15 portions of tinned tomatoes.
It is now dubbed the biggest breakfast in the UK which customers are challenged to eat within an hour.
The breakfast costs £50 and if it is polished off within the time limit, the competitor gets their money back.
Ted says that the café at Shepards Place Farm started their breakfast challenges around three years ago and have been working up to creating the Terminator Armageddon.
He said: “The Terminator Armageddon is officially the biggest breakfast in the UK. I have already had messages from competitive eaters in the US who are desperate to get over and give the challenge their best shot.
“We just progressed our breakfast challenges until we got to where we are today.
“We are renowned for our breakfasts and we are proud to now be the home of the largest breakfast in the UK.
“I’d seen a few food challenges in the US and on programs such as Man VS Food but I thought that I hadn’t seen many happening in this country so I started doing them.
“They are so popular with our customers and we have had people travel from all over the country to give our breakfast challenges ago, so I look forward to welcoming even more people to try out the new Terminator Armageddon challenge.
“It is absolutely massive and it was even hard for me to carry the tray over to the table as it was so heavy.
“It easily weighs between 15 to 20lbs.”
Ted insists on using only quality ingredients when the fry-up is put together.
“We use great quality ingredients in the challenges which I think also makes them such a huge success because people are genuinely enjoying what they are eating.
“In this new challenge, we use huge sausages which are double the size of the regular sausages that we use so it is the equivalent of 30 sausages.
“Along with 15 portions of each of the other breakfast items. It takes us about 20 minutes to cook because it is so big.
“To be honest I don’t know how anyone will be able to finish this just for the sheer amount of sausages.”
Ted thinks that his breakfast challenge is a great way to get people together and have a laugh.
He said that after the pandemic and with restrictions easing he wanted to launch a new challenge for a bit of fun.
He added: “I really enjoy hosting the challenges because I love seeing customers having a great time.
“And I think it is amazing that people travel from around the country to come and try it.
“It’s great fun and a good laugh for everyone involved.”
