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”).

Rippers star deep-fried hot dogs that get their name from the split typically formed from the frying process.
