Had a Taylor ham sandwich with home fries at Athens. Sandwich has fried egg, cheese, and pork roll. It's always on their breakfast menu.

The only difference was "would it be topped with mustard or ketchup". Obviously, we did not have sophisticated palates in those days.

At home I have not made them in a very very long time due to the very high sodium content.........but they were GREAT when we were younger.......

p.s. Cute story. When we moved to Vermont in 1970, we were reminiscing about Taylor Pork Roll..........I mentioned it to a friendly neighbor who was a "native" plus a country gal. She apparently went out & bought some.........she HATED IT. Guess she didn't know (until later) that she was supposed to fry it. Ate it just out of the wrapping. I guess she thought it was like cold cuts/cold meats.
Oh yes, taylor ham sushi is very popular in some Japanese New Jersey Restaurants.

At 10 Dollars a pound it best be great. I love my beef and it is cheaper. Each to their own.

Think of it as New Jersey comfort food. How do you put a price on that?

Besides a quarter pound is enough for 2 sandwiches. I got a dollar and a quarter for a taylor ham sandwich and enough extra money to buy a hard roll, lettuce, tomato and mayo. I'm still looking for a hard roll. For now Fresh Market has a square Italian roll for 65 cents that's plenty good enough.

Once I had it I made my mom make it.

When I lived alone I had a frying pan dedicated to it.

If I can find it in TV it would bring back old memories!

We went to Seaside Heights every single weekend, either a Saturday or a Sunday........driving home late evening on the "Garden State Parking Lot" as we jokingly called it. It was the place to go, for sure. Yes, now I also remember it on the boardwalk.

I could get taylor ham at home so I never ate it at Seaside. I would eat the sausage and pepper sandwiches. You could smell them when you got on the boardwalk. I played the stands too and the game where you roll a ball down the lane and it hoped in the air trying to get into the 50 point cup. What was that game called? Skeeball? I was good at it. All my best skills are useless skills like diagraming sentences. I was good at that too.
