Cor, Blimey! A Yard and Half ($150) Sang'wich? Eat Me; That's Pricey!

Minced Oaths! Now, I am as free with a Buck as any dope with surplus nickels in my strides, but this is one expensive Sandwich! This Brit Hash Slinger concocted this Rolex Roll Robbery !

The chef used a £5 loaf of sourdough dressed with extra virgin olive oil and then layered cheese, slices of quail's egg, heirloom black tomato, epicure apple, and fresh figs.
He added dainty mustard red frills, pea shoots and red amaranth for a salad layer and topped the whole masterpiece with edible gold dust.
The cost of the entire sandwich put together runs to £111.95. ($150 USA)
There is no current official world record for the most expensive cheese sandwich but Blunos and Pilgrim's have applied to the Guinness book to have their sandwich recognised.
The standing record for the most expensive commercially available sandwich is the von Essen Platinum Club Sandwich, which was made at the Cliveden House hotel in Taplow, Berkshire.
It featured Iberico ham, poulet de Bresse, white truffles, quail eggs, semi-dried tomatoes and fermented sour dough bread, weighed half a kilogram, and cost £100.
It's probably a little extra if you want it toasted.

Knock yourself out, Clive.

I'll take a Folo's Beef, Fat Tommy's Hot Dog, Pop's Combo, or Hickey's Morgan Park Masterpiece* any day... and it won't cost me a lung!

Morgan Pork Masterpiece Sandwich.

Thus -

Two lightly toasted slices of Nature's Pride Oatmeal Bread
One thin slice of Red Onion
One layer of mixed greens
Three thinly sliced shingles of cold roasted pork loin
1/2 ounce of Kyle's Generations Barbecue Sauce applied liberally to both slices of bread.
