I've associated it with Jersey and Philly, which is probably due to the Trenton connection. Then again it could be because it was my mom who cooked it and she was raised splitting her time between Jersey and Philadelphia. Her cousins with more tenuous Philly connections never heard of it.

always pork roll to me too - I havent had one in years - they are tasty though Wawa sells them on bagels to go already hot
