    Yes, cabbage slaw with cranberries. Goes really nicely on a turkey sandwich!

    Decided to pull a pack out of the freezer for breakfast this morning. Tried things a bit different, and I think it came out the best of any I have made so far. Fried up the Taylor ham and held it in the pan while I toasted the roll in the pan juices. Fried two eggs and left them just over easy this time. A little touch of mayo on the bottom roll, a piece of ham, slice of cheese, one egg a slice of cheese and another piece of ham. Topped it off with the top bun pretty well soaked in Frank's red hot sauce.

    For me it was better with a bit less. Only two slices of ham and one egg. Man I tell you, toasting the roll in the pan like that is one of the keys!!

    Very tasty!

    Pork roll reminds me of my nana. When I was a kid, she used to make us pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwiches. I know it's typically an up north thing, so most people from FL don't know about it...But I DO!!! :D

    I'm graduating from college tomorrow and going to my mom's house before the ceremony. I think I'm going to ask her to make pork roll, egg, & cheese sandwiches for breakfast to incorporate nana in the day. :)

    Congratulations and that sounds like an appropriate celebration breakfast.

    I just called the distributor www.jerseyporkroll.com and the rep told me that HEB discontinued it and it has also been discontinued in Florida aswell. Looks like it will be a mail order for me eventually.

    It is available at Publix in Florida. The online store is very high priced.

    This could mean two things and the first would be stock on hand or Publix is now mail ordering and not a regular outlet for the roll.

    That used to be my go-to Sunday hangover breakfast! Usually used tater tots and regular old chopped onion but a PR "skillet" is a wonderful thing.

    I just bought a 1lb here and had it fried on a asiago cheese bagel... to say it was good is an understatement.

    Worse part now is my daughter likes it and I have to share ;-)

    I think I ate the last of mine awhile back. Will have to scour the freezer to see if there is another package hiding in a corner.

    There used to be Taylor Pork Roll stores on the Atlatic City and Wildwood boardwalks.

    When I worked at the shore during college we'd drive to wildwood after work just to get a pork roll sand which grilled over open flame.

    grandparents took me years ago to the one in wildwood, sat at the counter and had a sandwich with my Grandfather who was a great guy... mmmm those were the days.

    to make those store all over again just like in the picture would make a mint...


    Treasure Island has it infrequently.
