France Will Make Giant 15,000-Egg Omelette For Easter Monday

On Easter Monday, about 10,000 people will gather once again in the town of Bessières, France, to chow down a giant-sized omelet made with 15,000 eggs all in all. The Giant Omelette Brotherhood of Bessieres will take it to the streets to cook the egg dish in a four-meter diameter pan, according to The Lonely Planet.

This Easter tradition started in 1973, but its roots were taken from Napoleon Bonaparte when he and his men spent a night near the town, as reported by The Local. After eating an omelet made by a local innkeeper of the town, and obviously enjoying it, Bonaparte requested for another round of the dish. This time, he gathered all townsfolk to break all their eggs produce to create an omelet for his army the next day.

The food celebration will start at 11 AM and lasts mostly around three hours or so. The Giant Omelette Brotherhood of Bessieres will prepare the ingredients of the omelet which consist of d'Espelette pepper, salt, and duck fat. It will take them about an hour and a half to break all the eggs and 30 more minutes to cook it.

While everybody is waiting, a band usually strikes up to play music, and the Brotherhood will dance. Visitors to the egg celebration are invited to do so too. From time to time, they'll be checking whether the food is cooked. Afterward, when all is said and done, the omelet is shared to every visitor celebrating Easter Monday at Bessières.

This is not the only town though that will be holding a huge number of eggs in a place. If one wants to roam around France, you'll find at Jardin d'Acclimation in the 16th arrondissement holding an Easter egg hunt with 15,000 eggs to discover by little kids and their families.
