The Big Breakfast Challenge

It all started out as a joke for Mario Frapolla, owner of Mario's Cafe Bar in Westhoughton, UK, but when his customers took him up on it, the Big Breakfast Challenge became a serious challenge:

For £10.95, willing victims can “enjoy” 10 eggs, 10 sausages, 10 rashers of bacon, 10 slices of toast, five black pudding slices, tomatoes, mushrooms and baked beans.

Owner and head chef Mario Frappola gives customers just 20 minutes to wolf down his calorie-packed meal and does not even allow them a cup of tea.

The breakfast packs in 5,000 calories — nearly twice the recommended daily intake for an average man.

Steven Thompson of The Bolton News took the challenge ... and lost spectacularly. He recounts the experience here: Link - via about:blank

Narrator: Michael was having brunch with Sally Sitwell at a restaurant called Skip Church's Bistro. In addition to brunch, the restaurant was known for an item on the menu called the "Skip's Scramble", an omelet that contained everything on the menu. Do not order the Skip's Scramble.

I Looooooove eggs. If those were scrambled hard, I'd have all of those down in 2 minutes tops.
The bacon would come next.
The rest of it, I'd have trouble with. Well not the tomato or mushrooms.
But the baked beans, BLEH. And I don't even wanna know what the black pudding is.
The sausage wouldn't be that bad, but too much sausage makes me sick.

Meh.... this one isn't that bad.
