Imagine spending $120 on an egg sandwich? Now you can at Australia's annual "Bacon Week" celebration.

Fresh from the Surry Hills restaurant 4Fourteen, the astronomical meal features a pan-fried duck egg, award-winning bacon from Slade Point Meat Specialists, semi-dried and smoked gourmet truss tomatoes, caviar, crème fraîche, shaved truffles, foie gras, and English cheddar, inside a handmade brioche bun, The Sunday Telegraph reported.

The extravagant sandwich will only be available during the week-long celebration.

"It's not something I ever thought I'd be doing but it will be interesting to see how many we'll sell," 4Fourteen's head chef Carla 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 and stuff like that."

Each $120 egg sandwich will be served with a side of shaved truffle aioli and chips, added Jones, who said she would likely try the costly item.

Bacon Week was created to promote quality Australian pork, according to Newsok.com.

"About two-thirds of bacon sales made in Australia are from pork that's imported and the average consumer doesn't know that's going on," Australian Pork Chief Executive Officer Andrew Spencer said.
