Author Notes

If you live in New Jersey, you’re well aware that a Taylor ham, egg and cheese sandwich is just about the best tasting morsel of comfort food you’ve ever had. This version of the deli-staple egg sandwich is iconic all over New Jersey but you can make it just as easily at home and quite possibly better. The combo of Taylor ham, eggs and cheese stays the same; the way you cook it is entirely your home cooks prerogative. As for Taylor ham, it’s only available in New Jersey, but because it’s pre-cooked, hickory smoked and salt cured it’s shipped year ‘round. —secretsofahomecook

  • Makes 1 breakfast sandwich
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 pieces Taylor pork roll (or Canadian bacon)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 pieces Cheddar cheese
  • 1 fresh Kaiser bun
  • salt and pepper
In This Recipe
  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt 1-tablespoon butter. Place both slices of Taylor pork roll side-by-side in the skillet. Cook until edges are brown, 2 minutes per side. Remove and set aside. Melt remaining tablespoon of butter in the same pan and gently add the eggs so they are side by side. Cook 2 minutes until eggs are set, then flip and cook 1 more minute (be careful not to break the yolks).
  2. While the Taylor Pork roll and eggs are cooking lightly toast the bun. Place cheese on the bottom toasted bun. Then, layer 1 slice of pork roll followed by both eggs (at this point you can add salt and pepper), then the other slice of pork roll. Put the bun on top and dig in with two napkins.
