The breakfast sandwich is enjoyed nationwide and even in other parts of the world, but in New Jersey the subject is discussed with such passion and emphatic certainty. I'm sure the French put a number of things on their baguettes and croissants that start their day, but absolutely not with half the emotion New Jerseyans have for their breakfast sandwich. Some of the best combinations in order of importance and acceptance are as follows:

  • PORK ROLL, EGG AND CHEESE ON EVERYTHING BAGEL
  • PORK ROLL(TAYLOR HAM), EGG, CHEESE ON KAISER ROLL
  • BACON, EGG AND CHEESE ON PLAIN BAGEL
  • SCRAPPLE, EGG AND CHEESE ON KAISER ROLL
  • HAM, EGG AND CHEESE ON CIABATTA BREAD
  • SAUSAGE, BACON, EGG, CHEESE, BLACK PEPPER, MAYO, KETCHUP ON HOAGIE ROLL
  • WAFFLE, SAUSAGE, EGG AND CHEESE ON WAFFLE (WAWA)
  • SAUSAGE, EGG, CHEESE AND CREAM CHEESE ON PLAIN BAGEL
  • BACON, EGG, CHEESE, TOMATO, SWEET PICKLE, MAYO AND LETTUCE ON WHITE TOAST
  • EVERYTHING BAGEL WITH CHIVE CREAM CHEESE

Everything else, you're just floundering around and haven't fully woken up yet.
