An egg sandwich for $120? It's no dream -- a restaurant in Sydney, Australia recently made the fantastical breakfast sandwich a reality as part of an Australian pork industry organization's "Bacon Week."
The sandwich, which was created by 4Fourteen chef Carla Jones, features several ingredients that don't strike us as particularly decadent, like bacon, smoked tomatoes, English cheddar, a handmade brioche bun and even a pan-fried duck egg. Others do, like foie gras, caviar, creme fraiche and shaved truffles. A side of chips will be served with a shaved truffle aioli.

Bacon Week 2013, a promotion from Australian Pork Limited, is encouraging other Australian chefs to top Jones's sandwich, so be on the lookout for other over-the-top bacon creations.
According to the Sunday Telegraph, the $120 egg sandwich will only be on the menu for a week. But Jones thinks that people will try it, despite the price tag.
"It's not something I ever thought I'd be doing but it will be interesting to see how many we'll sell," she told the publication. "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."
