If you live near Burton in the UK, and feel like a tasty snack, why not go and try Burton's Biggest Butty? (and take some pics for the rest of us of course!) Known as the Sarnie Schwarzenegger, this breakfast butty sounds awesome. This huge sandwich consists of a staggering eight slices of bacon, four sausages, three eggs, four portions of mushrooms, half a pound of cheese and a whole can of baked beans on a huge unsliced white loaf. The monster snack cost £9.50 Now that's something we all need to see!

WHAT is believed to be Burton's biggest breakfast butty has been made by two women in a town centre sandwich bar. Debbie Robinson, 40, from Stapenhill, who owns Rumbletums in New Street, had her biggest and most unusual order yet when a customer walked in and ordered a 'gigantic breakfast sarnie'.

The man, who was with his son and daughter, ordered a huge sandwich which consisted of a staggering eight slices of bacon, four sausages, three eggs, four portions of mushrooms, half a pound of cheese and a whole can of baked beans on a huge unsliced white loaf. The monster snack cost £9.50.

To start the sandwich, Debbie and a colleague cut the loaf into three sections horizontally and placed the cheese on the bottom two halves before putting it into the oven.

Then the eight slices of bacon and four sausages were cooked on the griddle along with the mushrooms and three eggs, while the beans were cooked in the microwave.

The mammoth butty took 15 to 20 minutes to cook and was taken out of the oven to put it together.

On the bottom half, four slices of bacon, two sausages, and a handful of mushrooms were stuck to the cheese.

The second layer had the other four slices of bacon, two sausages, two eggs and the rest of the mushrooms then place together with the top of the loaf wedged on top.

Debbie said: "When the man walked in and ordered that we started laughing - we thought he was joking. We kept asking him if he was serious and his daughter replied 'honestly, my dad has them all the time and cooks them himself at home'.

"I've never made anything so big before and the man had to tell me which way he liked the bread cutting and specified what he wanted and where.

"The size of that would have easily fed a family - I don't know how anyone could possibly eat a sandwich that size."

Rumbletums colleague Jenny Seth, 61, from Henhurst, who helped make the beast, said: "In my 15 years of catering, I've never seen a sandwich that big.

"We thought he was joking - but obviously not. It looked like two bricks from a house."
