This ultimate brunch sandwich has two thick decadent French toasts topped with crispy bacon, a sunny egg, American cheese and savoury slices of Trenton pork roll.
Pork roll, also known regionally as Taylor ham, is cured minced ham sausage. Invented in New Jersey in 1856, it’s a regional favourite for breakfast sandwiches and can be found at any diner or deli across the Garden State.
