A MINNESOTA CASINO has cooked up a world-record bacon cheeseburger that’s 10ft in diameter and weighs more than a ton.

The behemoth was served up Sunday at the Black Bear Casino Resort near Carlton. It tipped the scales at 2,014lb.

It “actually tastes really good”, according to Guinness Records representative Philip Robertson.

According to the Duluth News Tribune, Black Bear’s burger included 60lb of bacon, 50lb of lettuce, 50lb of sliced onions, 40lb of pickles and 40lb of cheese.

It took about four hours to cook the patty. A crane was used to flip it.
