PORTLAND, Maine — As record-setting sandwiches go, the planned world's largest lobster roll will be a colossal crustacean creation.

A team of culinary whizzes plan to combine 45 pounds of lobster meat, four gallons of Miracle Whip and a special blend of herbs and seasonings into a mix that will be slathered onto a 60-foot roll _ so large that the bread will be brought in on a flatbed truck.

The monster lobster roll is to be unveiled June 7 during Maine's Old Port Festival in Portland.

The lobster roll will be cut into 4-inch sections that are to be sold as part of a fundraiser for a Portland neighborhood association for youth swimming lessons.

The association intends to get the roll certified by Guinness World Records.
