Taylor ham,under Boars Head label, makes a great tasty sandwich combined with anything. Flat grill or pan fried, brings out the best of this flavor. Great!

    I just checked the entire Boar's Head product line and they do not list any Taylor ham.

We eat it fried with melted American cheese served on a burger bun or topped with an over easy egg, melted cheese and served on an English muffin. I like mine topped with ketchup and/or hot sauce.

      As for it tasting *anything* like Spam or Treet, well, I beg to differ.

      I even like it more than scrapple. Mmmmmmm.


      I'm a philly boy and now in the nw, and glad to hear the reference to availability in seattle. For 30 years my folks would lug the rolls on a plane to bring to their home in San Diego. Just shows what different taste buds we all have - TPR is no Spam! my lord, TPR is far superior. I remember those fast food places on the Ocean City boardwalk that sold TPR sandwiches and we always had it at home - remember the foil pouches you could put in the toaster?

          Well, then how can we ever trust anything you say, Michael Hoffman?

          IF, that's your real name !!!!?????!!!!
          Wait, sir: surely you never trusted Mr. Hoffman!?

            I lived in Morris County, NJ for 8 years a while back. Coming from CT, I had no clue about Taylor Ham or Pork Roll. A kind co-worker filled me in and I was hooked. Taylor Ham, egg and cheese on a bagel with ketchup! Great for breakfast or anytime. Now that I'm back in CT, I'm delighted to advise that Taylor Ham is appearing in local markets. I found both the pre-sliced and the whole roll in a market in Madison, CT. Bought it, ran home and enjoyed every bite. I grill it in a non-stick pan...no need to add any butter, oil, etc. Gets nice and crispy. The same as Span? Treet? I respectfully disagree...the spices are clearly different as is the texture.

              Comparing Spam to Taylor Ham is like comparing Gravel to Grits!

                  Is that a baklava on the side of that pork roll sandwich?

                        Pork roll's even regional within New Jersey. Was having a food conversation with daughter's boyfriend, who lives in Trenton (actually just on the outskirts) and he said, "We don't do Taylor's in Trenton! We only do Case's!" It's just as good. As I stated towards the beginning of this thread (like two years ago!), the store brand is readily available here. For the poster who said they had a hard time keeping it flat when pan-frying: cut tiny notches at "2, 4, 7 & 10" 'round the circle. That should really help. Either that, or put something weighted like a bacon press on.

                            "Taylor Ham" is a company that makes Pork Roll.

                            It like arguing whether to call petroleum jelly Vaseline or petroleum jelly.

                                Actually, Taylor Provisions, Inc. makes Taylor Pork Roll. Case Pork Roll Company, Kohler Provisions and Loeffler Gourmet -- all in New Jersey -- also make pork roll. Hatfield Quality Meats in Pennsylvania makes a pork roll, too.

                                    After reading this post months ago and being a lover of Spam. I set out to find this stuff...I found it at Martins in Hagerstown MD. they were having a 10 for $10. sale.

                                    It aint bad But I still prefer Spam.

                                      That is interesting, because the Taylor label shown down-thread states that it is made in Trenton!

                                            My husband is from Philly, now i live with him in Philly.When he makes Taylor(a must)Pork Roll he cuts notches in it then fries it up in a pan comes out looking like an Iron Cross yummy.I think it has the taste of bacon and ham not spam.I've also never imagined ever liking Scrapple but the way he makes it i love it.He slices it thick and dusts it lightly with corn starch fries it in oil till the outside is very crunchy and the inside is smooth. Always is Habbersett Scrapple.

                                              i will say that i love pork roll. if you want to try something good put a slice or 2 onto a hamburger with some cheese in a nice fresh bun. like a heaven!! anyone in NJ should try this at Frankie's in Pt Pleasant NJ. i used to have it there a few years back but don't live down there anymore. Also the best pork roll and cheese on a nice soft roll!! is at the Clark White Diamond in NJ during weekday mornings. I have been there on the weekends and it is not the same. The key to pork roll/taylor ham is to not over cook it(at least thats the way i like it!)

                                                Well, I had my first Taylor Pork Roll today for breakfast. The wife sort of shoved me out of the way (she was hungry) and helped with the frying of the slices in a cast-iron frying pan. They were quite tasty with eggs and english muffins.

                                                I have a question: Is there more than one size roll? After frying, the slices were only about 2-1/2" in diameter. The sandwich photo up-thread looks to have cooked slices of about 4" (unless those are really small rolls).

                                                  Well, then how can we ever trust anything you say, Michael Hoffman?

                                                    Clark White diamond is one of my favorites. The food can definetly vary in quality as they have a large staff of employees. The weekenders are different then the weekday staff. Still beats going to McDonalds or Burger King though.

                                                      Don,

                                                      Yes, Taylor does make pork roll in two different diameters, one about 4 inches in diameter and the other about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. As far as I am able to tell, the recipe and taste are the same for both. The 2 1/2 inch or so roll is usually found in New Jersey supermarkets in the section where they sell bacon and pre-packaged cold cuts. I think it is a 1 1/2 pound package.

                                                      Service delicatessens usually have a 6 pound, 4 inch dimeter loaf that they slice on a commercial slicer. I prefer to buy the pre-sliced 6 ounce packages that are wrapped in Cryovac. They are the 4 inch size, and have either (4) 1 1/2 ounce slices or (8) 3/4 ounce slices per 6 ounce package. Some delis do not sell enough, and Taylor Ham will oxidize if not tightly wrapped.

                                                        Well, that explains it. We are probably too far south of NJ to have all of the choices.

                                                          You can get the large size rolls at BJ's even here in Florida. We cut it into 4 and freeze 3 sections. I haven't noticed any problem with freezing but it seldom stays longer than 2mnths
