Record-Breaking 2,663-Pound Schnitzel Cooked Up At German Festival

The Schnitzel Fest event Bavaria, Germany used 400 pork chops, 4,000 eggs and 551 pounds of bread crumbs to created a giant schnitzel, a battered and fried pork dish. The resulting schnitzel is 2,663 pounds and 753.5 square feet. Organizers say it took nearly 3,700 gallons of oil to fry. A Guinness World Record adjudicator was on hand to verify the schnitzel's measurements and certify that it broke the previous record of 1,212.5 pounds. It was then split into 4,800 portions and sold to attendees at the festival.
