    We get pork roll around here and I love it. We just grill it and put it on a bun with some cheese and ketchup and relish. You have to cut a slice in each piece or they curl up. When you're done they look like pac man slices. The best around here is Taylor pork roll. I haven't seen this mentioned yet....

    Also referred to as Taylor Ham...I just looked it up in wikipedia, unless your from Philly/NJ area, you maybe never heard of it. It has to be made like some kind of sausage...I can't find a recipe anywhere (other than what to do with it). [​IMG]

    It's more sausage looking than bologna. I went and got some Friday, I was thinking about making it like a fattie but it didn't make it past breakfast. [​IMG] I think it's definitely processed like sausage. Instead of a regular casing, it looks like it's forced into canvas like "bags". It really is awesome, I was hoping that someone may have a recipe to actually make the pork roll.
