Memorial Day - Pork Roll Double Meat Dog, and Chau's Strawberry Pie

I've been on a sort of Pork Roll kick lately, after trying the "Jersey Burger" at 500 degrees. I always try to keep some on hand for pork roll eggs benedict, perfect size and so god damn good, I don't know why it's not on the brunch menu of every gastropub in town.

For last week's Hot Dog Of The Week post I went recipe style for Memorial Day with the "Pork Roll Double Meat Dog" despite having never actually made one. It's as much a Philly hot dog as it is Jersey, with the split and grilled dogs, grilled onions, club rolls and american cheese.

Memorial Day I gave the Pork Roll Double Meat Dog recipe a whirl, adding cheese wiz and mustard to the mix, and holy crap they were delicious. The addition of wiz really brings it all together. You can't see it in the photos but it's under the American with the onions.

Along with the artery clogging pork roll hot dogs, there was Tomato Pie from Sam's Italian Market, and Chau's amazing Strawberry Pie. Also a questionable Hawaiian pork roll, pineapple and swiss cheese hamburger experiment, and Jello Shots.
