Best Breakfast Sandwich

Taylor Ham, Egg, and Cheese at Scolari's Good Eats

For folks who spent their formative years in New Jersey, the Taylor Ham, Egg, and Cheese is the king of all breakfast sandwiches, and a source of unrequited nostalgia — at least until it became a fixture on the daily specials menu at Scolari's Good Eats. Scolari's' version has stellar building blocks: a toasted challah bun, high-quality cheddar cheese, an outrageously runny fried egg that's cooked until just set and still quivering, and all the traditional condiments (salt, pepper, ketchup). And the star of the show: several slices of well-griddled Taylor ham — a salty, über-creamy processed pork product that any Spam lover will adore. Our only complaint is that Scolari's never opens earlier than 11:30 a.m., meaning this is a breakfast sandwich we have to eat for lunch. But who are we kidding? We've happily eaten this so-called "Jersey Breakfast" for dinner more times than we can count.
