Hmm... I may have talked about this before. A few years ago, I photographed some paintings at the house of Teller (of Penn & Teller) outside of Las Vegas. He is from Philly, and he made breakfast. Waffles (with a nice commercial maker) with frozen strawberries, and 1/4" slices of fried Taylor's. It was great! Then, I found Taylor's in two sizes of chub at the Farmer's Market here in LA. I tried it, and for some reason it just was not as good as it was there in Las Vegas, I don't know why. Maybe I'll try it again.
But I just want to let folks know you can get it at the meat market on the east end of FM. 3rd & Fairfax.

If it wasn't for a "Pork Roll Egg and Cheese w/salt, pepper, ketchup"..the entire trucking industry leaving Port Newark would shut down.

Seriously, is "Taylor Ham" or "Taylor Pork Roll" just another regional word to make baloney, (bologna), sound acceptable?
At least the folks who eat SPAM and Treet and head cheese and all that other stuff call it what it is.

It's not the same. The flavor is very different. bologna is a lot softer and lighter in color also.

Taylor and all the other Trenton, NJ pork rolls are much closer to salami than to bologna.

I'd say it is closer to a cross between Bacon but with the consistancy of spam until you fry it. I know some people microwave it but that is just, well.... gotta be crisp to get the full effect in my opinion.

Good call......Maybe the meat is smoked like bacon. That just might be the difference between Pork Roll, Spam, & Bologna

A Beetle Hat is a cold, uncooked and quite often slimy piece of bologna laid on a plate, topped with a scoop of fake mashed potatoes and covered with a slice of plastic government cheese. Quite tasty if you're in the right frame of mind.

As is visible in my photo.




And on the 8th day....God made Pork Roll

That looks really good!


It was tasty.. But kinda salty...that was really my only complaint.
Little sandwich shop in Conway has it on their menu.....

matilda,

Bologna can be made witha mixed bag of meats and or an all beef variety, so it's hard to compare. Taylor Pork Roll is good old salted, cured pork. It really has a different taste, not like bologna at all, maybe more like a bland, salty salami or even a boiled salami and not hard Genoa, or closer to Canadian Bacon. It is hard to describe but it really is a unique taste. Spam fried is wonderful also, but again it doesn't have the same greasy, salty taste. Pork roll egg, cheese is a staple on most Jersey deli's morning menus. It is really tasty and you should try it. Check this link out:

It's not really bologna.. I had never tried it, until I made that post on this thread, with photo.....
Hard to describe it, Matilda.

Hey,
A quality bologna, say Thuman's or Boars Head is great fried for breakfast....It was a treat for me fifty years ago when I was a kid....And being from New Jersey,the culinary capital of the North East...we all know Taylor Pork roll is as much Spam as Pizza Hut is Pizza(Maybe in the mid west it is??)Oh and Spam is nothing more than a hunk of the cold cut Spiced Ham...and try that fried for breakfast

There is nothing better than a Taylor Ham and Cheese on a slightly toasted bagel. If you get it sliced at the deli-get is very thin and pile it on. When it is thin it gets nice an crispy.

Would that would be kosher Taylor Ham on a kosher bagel at the kosher deli?

Brentk,
You could use it for a sort of garnish in a livermush sandwich. Be sure to slather it all with Duke's Mayonnaise, though. And use plain old store-bought white bread.

Oneiron,
That oughtn't be necessary. My local Publix store carries it, so you ought to be able to turn it up in one Publix or another in Metro 30301-land. You may have to ask up front where they keep it, because I just lucked up on it in my local store... it wasn't with many of their similar products.

P. S. My local Publix carries both the thin-sliced and the thick-sliced versions: "Choose yer pizen," as my mother used to say.

P. P. S. An amendment: DUH, someone already told you that. Gnerb. Ignore this post.

Dearfolk,
I know it's off the Taylor Pork Roll topic, but y'all had me PLUMB stumped with your references to Drink-A-Toast. Although I hail from Georgia, I AM familiar with Boost, that flat cola-type beverage from Western New Jersey... and I sure would like to try it just once, even if it does play Whaley with my sugar levels! Who knows... I might grow to like it almost as much as I like Moxie!
