Can you get a hard roll outside of Jersey? There's nothing like a buttered hard roll with coffee in the morning. Kaisers are just a poor 2nd cousin to the real thing. And I know this is not the correct forum for this but its been slow lately and I digress!
… A hard roll, sliced in half and smothered with butter …

Can you get a hard roll outside of Jersey?I started dating my wife over 30 years ago when we worked at the same company in NJ. We would frequently get sandwiches at Annie's Deli and bring them back to my office. I would always get the same thing. Nan asked what I wanted."Sally Diplock on a hard roll.""I already wrote it down." SALLY DIPLOCK Roast beef - melted cheddar - worcestershire sauce - tomatoes - Russian Click to follow link...Yum!
Google says a hard roll is a Kaiser (aka the Vienna Roll.....never heard that one either). Is it or isn't it the same thing as a hard roll? Google images returned pics that were clearly a Kaiser, but also of another roll similar in shape, yet more sinister in nature. I've never heard of a hard roll, but i live well with in the area that is the focus of this conversation. I also claim expert level knowledge of pork-derived breakfast delicacies. My pork roll credentials are solid as i am a strong proponent of using it instead of Canadian bacon on on eggs Benedict (though i wish them made a reduced sized pork roll for this purpose)!! that said, and nothing to do with pork roll, i whole heartedly agree with the home fries comment above. HOME FRIES DO NOT COME IN CUBES!!!
We have friends who are from Brooklyn N.Y. Who moved here and operate a very successful bakery. One of the owners told me that in N.Y. a buttered roll was a very popular breakfast order but here in PA nobody ever asks for it,
Brings back memories. I'm 87 now but when I was in my teens, my Dad was German and owned a bakery and made the best hard seeded rolls. My lunch almost every day, when i walked home from High school almost a mile away, was Taylor Ham and Bread and Butter pickles on a hard seeded roll. Makes my mouth water.
