This 8,000-Calorie Breakfast Requires You to Sign a Waiver


You’d have to fast for three days before consuming that monstrosity.

Imagine a breakfast so disgustingly large and heart attack-inducing, that you have to sign a waiver in order to consume it. We would probably pass on such a meal, but Bear Grills Café in Congleton, a sly reference to Bear Grylls’ Man vs. Wild, has created an 8,000-calorie breakfast (that’s four times more than the average adult male should consume each day). The gluttonous feast requires you to sign a waiver saying that you will be responsible for any damages accrued from devouring  this seven-pound menu item — that’s roughly the weight of a newborn baby, by the way.

The breakfast king is called “The Hibernator” and is piled high with eight rashers of bacon, eight sausages, four hash browns, four fried eggs, a four-egg cheese omelet, four waffles, four pieces of toast, four pieces of fried bread, four portions of black pudding (a.k.a. blood sausage), two scoops of beans, two scoops of tomatoes, mushrooms, a large portion of French fries, and a two-pint milkshake to wash it all down. Wow.

“Younger guys come in, and they look at the ingredients up on the board and say: ‘I am going to smash that,’” said owner Mark Winder. “But then they see it come out on the big platter all heaped high and start to cry on the phone to their friends. They give up after about 20 minutes.”

The Hibernator actually only costs £19.95 ($32.37 USD), but so far, only 20 people have attempted to slay the bacon-y beast. If you eat the whole thing, you’ll win £100 ($162.24 USD) and a spot on the Hall of Fame.
