$120 egg sandwich: Australian chef creates extravagant breakfast roll

Would you pay $120 for a gourmet egg sandwich just to "see what it's like"?

That's what one Australian chef is hoping after making the world's most expensive egg sandwich as part of the country's "Bacon Week," reports the Sunday Telegraph.

Carla Jones, head chef at 4Fourteen, will serve the extravagant breakfast roll for one week at the Surry Hills restaurant.

The sandwich is composed of bacon, a pan-fried duck egg, semi-dried and smoked gourmet truss tomatoes, duck foie gras, caviar, crème fraiche, shaved truffles and English cheddar. All of that is served on a handmade brioche bun with a side of chips and shaved truffle aioli.

It's probably not a burger recommended by cardiologists, and even its creator doesn't think she'd eat one.

"It will be interesting to see how many we'll sell," Jones said. "I reckon some people will buy it just to see what it's like. I'm not sure I'd eat it—I'm not that into truffles."

The burger is one of many dishes being prepared as part of Australia's Bacon Week, which promotes quality Australian pork over imported meats.
