Pork Roll Substitute


OK Gotta make some more Pork Roll, because of a substitution.
I ordered a couple Chubs of “Bob Evans” Sausage, and Giant was out of it, so they subbed Pork Roll instead.
That just plain won’t work for what I ordered it for!!!

So for the first night, I cut 7 slices of Pork Roll, and Fried them up in a Copper Pan.
That was 5 slices for me & 2 for Mrs Bear.
I gave her a Burger Bun & I used the last one & 2 slices of bread for my other one, because we ran out of Buns.
And that first night I used Plain Yellow Mustard, and some Olives on the side.

Then the second night, I sliced up the rest of the Pork Roll, and put 2 slices one each of a single slice of Bread.
Then I folded the Bread in half around the Pork Roll slices. I used Koops’ Spicy Mustard on these 3 Sammies.
Had a couple Deviled Eggs with these.


That’s about it for that Roll of Pork Roll.

Sammies look great John! We don't have pork roll down here either so I've never had it but looks like it would be very good.

Looks great Bear! I love pork roll, so it’s not a bad substitution to have....but sucks to hear you couldn’t use the sausage for your intended purpose.

Like!

Looks great Bear! Love Pork Roll since childhood. I order in from NJ, as I must have mentioned before. LOL.
I tried it with Gulden's spicy mustard and it was good. I also use Heinz ketchup more regularly, and swiss cheese on the sandwiches once in a while. Just had 2 Pork Roll and Scrambled egg on Hard Rolls last night.

Jake, Publix here in Ga carries it, maybe Publix near you has it too? They only carry the thin sliced prepackaged, but it's better than nothing.

Looks awesome, Bear! My mother’s side of the family is originally from Philadelphia and I grew up around Taylor Pork Roll. If you’ve never tried it, get your hands on some and do like Bear did...you’ll love it! 😋

Thank You Jim!!
LOL---I wanted to mix it with Ground Beef, to come up with something to replace My Deerburger, if I can't get it any more.That obviously won't work wit Pork Roll.
And Thanks for the Like.

Thank You Brian!!
I would say the closest flavor to Pork Roll, would be a Good Tasting Hot Dog.

Pork Roll is mainly a Jersey area food. People will argue over brands, but a good pork roll and egg on a hard roll that's something to enjoy.
