Pork Roll is New Jersey’s favorite regional breakfast meat. The thing is, we can’t come to a consensus. We’re split in two over terminology, with much of Central and South Jersey using “pork roll” and most of North Jersey using “taylor ham.” Which is it? Technically, Taylor Ham is a brand, but so is Band-Aid and we commonly use the term to refer to all bandages. In the end, it’s a matter of personal preference, but people have some pretty strong opinions on the subject.
