Why is money referred to as “bread”? Or “cheddar”? If you have lots, do you just tell people you’re loaded will grilled cheese sandwiches?

If cheddar and bread are slang for money, is a grilled cheese sandwich made with only cheddar cheese slang for boat loads of money?

Bread is a slang term for money. Cheese is also a slang term for money. Therefore grilled cheese sandwiches are the ultimate form of wealth.
