Hello, my father has never heard of this Jersey sensation of a breakfast and I was hoping I could make him one this weekend when he visits.

For starters, where can I buy Taylor Ham/Pork Rolls? Do they sell them at Pathmark or Shoprite or do I have to go to a special deli or meat market?

Second, what else goes with this? Is it served on a Kaiser Roll with American cheese and an egg?

the deli of any supermarket. i prefer the freshly sliced as opposed to the prepackaged, which you can find near the bacon - red and white box.

I've always bought it in Shoprite or A&P (who owns Pathmark). As tahiti said, it's in the section near the bacon.

You serve it on a fresh Kaiser Roll (also known as a hard roll in some places). Taylor Ham on bottom, then a slice of American cheese, and then a fried egg (not scrambled) on top. Black pepper is a must and for me Ketchup is necessary. Salt is optional, for me the Taylor Ham has enough salt usually.

You may want to get one from a diner to try it and see how it's made. You and your dad will love this, I'm sure.

Lots of Taylor Ham threads lately.

However good it is it still can't compete with bacon.

Taylor Pork Roll can be found in the dairy case in almost every supermarket in NJ, it's by the bacon in most stores. It comes in 4 slices, thick cut , or 8 slices thin cut, both are in a red box. I go with pork roll and chesse only.

This is what the box looks like in case they don't have it in the deli section to slice fresh as Tahiti said. Also a picture of the finished product . I'm a purist I like it without the egg but with ketchup. By the way, when you cook it, a lot of people put 4-6 cuts around the edged of each slice. This helps it to lay flat when it's cooking in the pan.

Just a note when cooking/frying it, slice a couple of notches around it so the middle doesn't rise up (like a bubble) this way its cooked all over. It also is very tastey on top of a cheese burger.
