Although the meal served at the St. Patrick's Day Breakfast may go down quickly, it takes hours and plenty of manpower to create. Here are some fun facts about Sunday's breakfast, provided by the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority’s food and beverage provider, Levy Restaurants.

-- The standard St. Patrick’s Day breakfast contains close to 1,125 calories and includes three eggs, four-ounces of corned beef hash, three ounces of potatoes, two sausage links, half a roasted tomato, one glass of orange juice, one breakfast pastry, and two beers.

-- An average person would have to walk 11 miles to burn off the breakfast.

-- Close to 1,344 eggs, 85-pounds of potatoes, 18-gallons of orange juice, and 25-gallons of coffee are expected to be served Sunday.

-- Twelve cows will be used for the corned beef hash.

-- It will take six tomato plants to produce all the tomatoes served Sunday.

-- More than 20 servers will attend to the guests, which will be seated in 360 chairs as they use more than 60-pounds of silverware.

-- Close to 506 cups of flour will be used to prepare the pastries for Sunday’s breakfast. It takes close to 48 hours to produce the complete meal.

-- The convention center, built in 2004 and located along the South Boston waterfront, is Massachusetts’ second-largest public works project
