Pork Roll Egg and Cheese... as Jersey as it gets.

Good Sunday Morning Readers!

This week off of work was totally needed for me to recharge, look around and enjoy life.

Sunday Mornings greet me with the urge to be creative in the kitchen.

Today however, I just wanted to keep it old school and make a sandwich that I haven't had in quite a while.

For those readers who don't know what pork roll is, then sit back and enjoy.

Pork Roll is a breakfast meat found in New Jersey and in some cases Philadelphia.

Also Known as Taylor Ham, It is sold in tube form or sliced.

The sandwich is simple:

2 Fried eggs seasoned with salt and pepper (yolk broken or not.. dealers choice.)

1 Fresh Kaiser roll or hard roll

3-4 slices of Taylor ham. ( also fried. The edges get nice and crispy and that makes the sandwich pop)

1-2 slices of American Cheese ( Thank you Wes for pointing out me missing this critical element)

You can toast the roll if you like. ( I just put mine in the drippings of the pork roll to get the added flavor.)

adding salt pepper and ketchup (or SPK as its called in the diners) enhances the flavor too)
Coffee is always a great accompaniment.

Readers I highly recommend this sandwich. It is a meal that is missed highly when I am out of state.

Last bite?
Its little things like this that make me proud to be a native to New Jersey.

Till next time readers. ( I just might make another one........)

Follow The way of The Fork

God Bless.
