If NJ had an official breakfast sandwich it would be pork roll, egg and cheese. Have you ever had one before? If not, you are missing out! I have heard people from out of my area say they have never heard of it before and cannot find it in their local grocery store. Pork roll is one of those types of meat that taste great but don’t read the label. I know if I looked at the calorie and ingredient content, it just wouldn’t be as enjoyable. I do know that you can get one of these sandwiches at any NJ diner or on the boardwalk in any NJ shore town. This time I decided to make my own.
There is really no recipe here. First I fry the tangy slices of pork roll in a nice big pan. I love mine well done and crispy. Mmmmmnnn!
Then you need to scramble and fry a few eggs. Make sure to toast the bagel or roll you are using. Both work well but I love having an onion bagel for my bread. Melt the cheese over the egg and pork roll. Another Mmmmnnnnn! Make sure you serve it with plenty of ketchup. Then eat this delicious sandwich. You might need a nap after it! Enjoy!
