Pork Roll, with Egg & Cheese (Ninja)



We haven’t had them like this for a long time—With Eggs, so let’s go!!

These were the Pre-sliced Pork Rolls, so all I had to do was put the little slits on the edges.
Then into the Ninja @ 390 for a couple minutes on each side, then 20 seconds for Provolone to melt on 2 of mine.
Then a second Thin slice of Pork Roll on top of the Cheese.

Then over to the stove, where Mrs Bear is keeping up with making a Fried Egg for each of our 3 Sammies.
Mustard was used, because it’s the thing I like most with both Pork Roll and Fried Egg.

That’s about all there was to it.

Bear


I started with some Yellow Mustard on all bun halves:

Place one slice of Provolone on each of 2 slices of Pork Roll, seconds before removing them from the Ninja Crisper Basket:

One Pork Roll Slice with melted Cheese on each Sammy:

Then another Slice of Pork Roll o top of the Cheese:

Now damnit, Bear, I haven't had Taylor ham since around, I don't know, maybe 1990? I had mostly forgotten about it and here ya are reminding me, and it looks absolutely delicious. I'm even drooling on my keyboard lol. I can remember getting Taylor ham, egg, and cheese on a hard roll every morning off the roach coach that came by a place I worked at in Jersey.

I don't usually shop at Kroger, but I may just have to go see if I can luck up on some.

Save yourself a trip and just look at the website for your local Kroger. They have clicklist so the whole inventory is online

Just did that: In store:unavailable, shipping:unavailable. I know I can order it online and have it shipped, but it's none too cheap to buy it that way. My sister was at one time married to a guy who had family in Jersey, and we would always have them bring us one of the great big deli size rolls of Taylor ham when they visited.

Amazon sells both, even in a single sku. Only problem will be price. Not sure what price is in local grocery store but A's price seems exorbitant.

You can also buy Taylor ham direct from the company that makes it, but again, the price isn't anywhere close to what you'd pay for it in the grocery store. I have had their site bookmarked for years, but if I go on and pay what they are asking to get my fix, I know I'm going to have to keep doing it. Some things are best left to memory. Now, if someone can figure out how to make it from scratch, I'd be all over it.

Looks great Bear! Pork roll is another one of those things my dad used to make all the time! Will have to introduce that to the kids as well! Thank you for sharing!

Sounds like a quest for someone who knows what it tastes like 😎.

i used to make beer and people would publish recipes for famous beers. After some time, they would actually taste like the beer.

My mom always said Taylor ham smelled like stinky armpits while it's cooking, and she may have been right, but it tastes divine.

From what I recall, it originated in Jersey, so maybe you were out of Pa before it made it to the area you grew up in?
