Pork Roll, also known as Taylor Ham in the northern part of the state, is a New Jersey staple. We typically pair it with egg and cheese on a hard roll for breakfast (or lunch) but it goes well with almost anything. The Garden State’s very own spiced meat, it’s a magnificent treat, and it deserves to be celebrated. Lucky for us, New Jersey is home to TWO competing pork roll festivals, both taking place on the same day.
