I only buy the pre-sliced 6 ounce package these days, with 4 slices to the pack. I prepare them the way Taylor did at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. They had a booth in the “Better Living Pavilion”. They grilled a patty about 1/4 inch think and simply served it on a hamburger bun. They might have added something else, but I always bought them plain.
Most of the mom-and-pop deli’s near where I grew up in NYC used to offer Taylor Ham sandwiches, similar to salami sandwiches. They simply sliced the large 6 pound loaves on a deli slicer, and added cheese, condiments etc. to the bread or roll.
I have bought a lot of funky Taylor Ham over the years. Fresh, it has a clean, sweet smoked aroma. If it was not kept cold and/or the plastic overwrap was opened too long ago, it gets a spoiled meat aroma and a gray appearance. Be aware of this if you don’t enjoy your purchase.
