A heaping Guinness World Record-breaking serving of green bean casserole was dished out at Macy's Herald Square Thursday, tipping the scales at 637 pounds a week ahead of Thanksgiving. 

The popular Turkey Day side dish was cooked up by Green Giant and Stella 34 Trattoria using 780 cans of green beans, 53 cans of mushroom soup, 32 quarts of milk and 65 pounds of fried onions. It took more than six hours just to open all the cans. 

After it officially broke the record, the casserole was donated to Citymeals on Wheels to help feed nearly 2,000 New Yorkers confined to their homes for personal health or mobility issues.
