A Jersey Breakfast

This morning, Mr. Scriblerus will enjoy a truly New Jersey-style breakfast. Taylor Pork Roll, egg and cheese on a fresh hard roll. Taylor Pork Roll or “Taylor Ham” is a Jersey original. Invented by John Taylor in the Nineteenth Century, it is still manufactured by the Taylor Provision Company in beautiful downtown Trenton. Every true blue New Jerseyan appreciates this near non plus ultra of the salted pork breakfast products (with the sole exception of bacon, being the king of course.)

Maybe for lunch I’ll have an Italian Hot Dog.

If the good Lord takes you after either of these meals, you die happy.
See if fish oil, whole grains or yogurt can do that for you. You'd die healthy, but still dead. A no brainer.

Thanks for the Taylor Ham history! I haven't seen any in years.

I don't know if it's available west of the Mississippi - or the Delaware for that matter!
