This topic is one that has been debated in earnest by many people, myself included. For years I have argued that it is not called pork roll but rather taylor ham is the only name for this delightfully New Jersey breakfast meat.
Today, I sit here, humbly typing that from here to forth, I will no longer refer to it as Taylor Ham. This is not a decision that I have come upon lightly. I have spent many hours meditating on this and I have lost plenty of sleep, tossing and turning agonizing over my previous belief.
In the end, I must face facts. The packaging specifies “Taylor Pork Roll”
