God I love that stuff. Pork roll on a hard roll with Swiss cheese and good mustard. Yummers!

It was years after I moved to FL before we could buy it in the supermarket here.

They couldn't call it that anymore, since it's technically not a ham.

Still can't get it in Colorado ... that sucks.

My brother brought me a half a roll back from NJ a few weeks ago ... yum!


The Jersey shore and pork roll (Case's or Taylor's) are about all I miss about the state.


Well ... and Jersey tomatoes ... and Jersey sweet corn. But that about does it.

It says plain as day on the loaf.. "PORK ROLL"

Taylor Ham is the crap that comes in the box.

Trenton Pork Roll FTW!!

It is Taylor Ham. When I go to a diner and it says "pork roll" on the menu, I order it as Taylor Ham.

I don't care if it is ham or not. I don't care what it is made of. It is made of pure yumminess. I second Diogenes's comment - on a hard roll with cheese and good mustard. Cannot be beat.

There is a food stall at the very south end of the Seaside Heights boardwalk that would easily fulfill both needs.

Can't find it in upstate NY either but my Mom brought back 6 rolls of it when she was in Jersey a couple of weeks ago.

Well no, I'm not talking about Taylor brand vs. another brand. I'm making fun of the argument over what to call it - Taylor Ham (regardless of who makes it) vs. pork roll. Except that it is Taylor Ham, just because. :P

In North Jersey, it's Taylor ham. In South Jersey, it's pork roll.

Either way, it's delicious and a Jersey classic!

I buy a log about once a year. It's a treat.

Now you guys have me missing NJ tomatoes and corn, too. It was woods and farmland where I grew up (Hunterdon).

I just do not understand the love. One of my kids loves the damn stuff. I was serious about the scrapple, though. Best breakfast meaty-like thing ever.

I've been spending *way* more time in Jersey since about a year ago but I haven't heard of this before. I'm intrigued.

Yes! It is a NJ thing. German/Slovak here and love the stuff. Grew up in Basking Ridge, with family in the Fords area. Mom usually brings a loaf when she visits from AZ of all places. She can't get it in upstate NY. The heathens here in the midwest have no appreciation for it either.

/Taylor FTW, so I was relieved to see it wasn't there factory.

Yea, I miss those also. Also miss NJ apple cider in the fall. Uncle ran a Veggie/Fruit stand in Peapack. Had great corn and apples.

Nice. That's where the family is from (Stirling, Basking Ridge, Chatam, Millington). Most are still there. I grew up in Hunterdon, though.

There's a couple online sites that will ship it.

Well that would be a mistake...but then there'd be more awesome pork roll deliciousness for the rest of us. I say, go for it.
 
2012-06-26 03:12:49 PM  
Case or Taylor, I would take either since I haven't had any at all since moving to Indiana in the late 90s.When I found out you couldn't find pork roll out here AND can't buy beer on Sundays, I was ticked.

Lebanon Bologna is another thing I miss from back east.

That would have been my preference. But there's no arguing with Grandma when it comes to food.

"Gram, they're going to think this a bomb at the airport."

"Oh, don't be silly. Here, I'll wrap it in lots of tin foil."

It's amazing it didn't raise any alarms.

2012-06-26 03:25:29 PM  
I grew up in Hamilton and now live in Bordentown.. there are still a bunch of places around here that have Trenton Burgers on the menu (burger with a fat piece of pork roll on it).. Also Jersey Dogs (also called italian or casino dogs, with fried potatoes, peppers and onions).

Every picnic we have i get a 3lb loaf of pork roll. Most of it goes, but i make sure to save me a couple pieces for my morning after Pork Roll Egg and Cheese breakfast sandwhiches..

/also love scrapple

Better than Spam. It's a pork product like a cold cut that comes in either a large roll or in slices.

Either you cut it into slices or if it's already sliced you peel it out from the package.
Cut four slices into it so it looks like a fireman's badge and fry it up.
Put it on a sandwich (preferably a hard roll) with egg and cheese.
One of the best breakfast sandwiches on the planet.

It's ubiquitous in Jersey. But in North Jersey they call it by its old name "Taylor ham" in South Jersey (and near Philly), it's pork roll.
 
2012-06-26 03:29:01 PM  
Wasn't introduced to Taylor Ham until 2 1/2 years ago and I must say it is pure awesome. Whenever the GF and I visit her parents we grab some Taylor Ham and cheese from the local bagel shop (I get egg too because I'm a glutton).

Kinda surprised I never heard of it while I was at Rutgers... we had the grease trucks there though.

Dammit, now I'm starting to drool.
Just imagine... a Fat Darrel (Rutgers folk will know) with Taylor Ham added to it...

I didn't go to Rutgers but I visited once or twice in college. And yeah, holy crap. My girlfriend lives in New Brunswick so I'm often close enough, but for some reason I just haven't gone.

They're opening a Mamoun's in New Brunswick though. That is farking exciting.
