Taylor Pork Roll Breakfast Casserole

Updated on August 12, 2014

I am a transplanted southern girl who married a Jersey boy many, many years ago. Never in my earlier years had I heard of Taylor Pork Roll or Jersey Pork Roll as some would call it. I remember my first taste of this delicious product and thinking how I must learn to use this in a recipe instead of just frying it up for breakfast.

After experimenting with several different recipes I finally found one that my whole family asks for and loves. I changed it a bit to make it my own and now it has become a tradition when the whole family gets together. This breakfast casserole can be made the night before and popped in the oven in the morning. Serve with some great coffee, juice and (if you like) ketchup.

Just to warn you, one year I made something else for breakfast and the disappointment in the room could be cut with a knife. This recipe requires you to make a commitment to make it year after year.

Taylor Pork Roll was first made in 1856 and every diner in the state of New Jersey has it on the breakfast menu.

There is a debate going on between North Jersey calling it Taylor Ham, and folks from South Jersey and Philadelphia calling it “Pork Roll.” Whatever you would like to call it I say give it a try, it's delicious.

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 8


  • 1 pound of Taylor Pork Roll-cut onto thin strips
  • 3 cups unseasoned dry stuffing cubes
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Pepper to taste (I don't add salt as the pork roll has plenty!)


  1. Cook the Taylor Pork Roll strips until crispy
  2. Measure the stuffing cubes.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs, stir in milk, and cheese.
  4. Add pepper to taste.
  5. Mix the Taylor Pork Roll and stiffing into egg mixture.
  6. Pour into a greased square baking pan.
  7. Cover and place in refrigerator at least two hours-overnight is perfect!
  8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  9. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes
  10. When a knife or toothpick comes out clean your dish is ready to serve. Enjoy!

      Being a southern boy by birth, I am interested in your recipe. I grew up eating something much similar and always wondered if I could find the recipe. You may have just provided my answer. Thanks for sharing
