New Jersey is home to a fantastic array of sandwich diversity. The state’s definitive ham sandwich, the pork roll, dates back to the 1850s (make it with an egg and a slice of American cheese and it’s known as “Jersey breakfast”). Its sloppy Joe, originating in the 1930s and named after a bar in Cuba, is more of a Dagwood-Cuban hybrid than what folks outside of Jersey would typically expect. Rippers star deep-fried hot dogs that get their name from the split typically formed from the frying process. The aptly named “fat sandwich” can feature any number of ingredients hanging around in the back of the house—beef, chicken, mozzarella sticks or jalapeño poppers, bacon, french fries, cheese and any number of sauces—somehow served on a bun. And while nearby Philadelphia is famous for the cheesesteak, it also graces the menu of many a New Jersey sandwich shop.
