    BROCKTON —

    Don’t let the name fool you: The McMullen is no fast-food value menu item.

    Hoping to set a new Guinness Book of World Records mark, the Brockton Rox are launching on Saturday what could be the world’s most expensive hot dog – an $80 foot-long delicacy with such exotic trimmings as caviar and truffle shavings.

    The McMullen – named after Atlantic City chef Ryan McMullen, who helped the team construct it – is a half-pound, all-beef hot dog rolled in truffle oil. It’s coated with porcini dust – pulverized mushrooms – and sprinkled with white truffle shavings, then topped with dollops of crème fraiche, fresh roe and caviar shipped from California. Keeping with baseball tradition, the dog will be deep-fried

    Any man that would eat caviar and truffles at a baseball game should have his man card taken away

    Even if it is on a hot dog.
