$120 egg sandwich: Pricey, but is it the world's most expensive sandwich?(Read article summary)
$120 egg sandwich: A chef in Australia has created a lavish bacon-and-egg sandwich for Sydney's Bacon Week which costs $120. While made with gourmet ingredients, the sandwich doesn't break the 'most expensive sandwich' record.
This is no Egg McMuffin.
In celebration of Sydney's Bacon Week, one chef is rolling out a limited-time-only $120 bacon-and-egg sandwich that easily puts all breakfast sandwiches to shame and most burgers in their place.
"It's not something I ever thought I'd be doing but it will be interesting to see how many we'll sell," Carla Jones, head chef at 4Fourteen restaurant in Sydney suburb Surry Hills told The Sunday Telegraph. "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 and stuff like that."
The lavish sandwich served on a homemade brioche bun includes award-winning bacon, a duck egg, gourmet tomatoes, foie gras, shaved truffles, caviar, creme fraiche, and cheese. The dish, a cross between a breakfast sandwich and a burger, will only be available during Bacon Week, May 12-19. The event organizers, the Australian pork industry association, have dubbed the sandwich "Australia’s most decadent bacon and egg roll."
