GRANBY, Quebec (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The town of Granby, Quebec, will be sizzling with “egg-citement” this Thursday (Jun. 24).

To celebrate the city’s French heritage, 60 chefs from around the world will gather at Parc Daniel-Johnson to whip up a giant 15,000-egg omelette.

Event organizer Mario Brisebois says the massive meal will require five gallons of oil, 75 pounds of ham, and 35 pounds of onion, and will be cooked in a 2,000-pound pan that’s 12- feet in diameter and boasts a telephone pole for a handle.

After proper prep, he thinks it should take about 40 minutes to actually cook the omelette, which will feed 5,000 onlookers.

But while organizers are attempting to break one Guinness World Record, they’re not biting off more than they can chew.

Brisebois says their main goal is to go down in the books for having one chef crack 1,400 eggs with one hand in one hour, not for the world’s biggest omelette, a feat that rightfully belongs to Thailand’s 22,000-egg monster.
