So Thanksgiving -- the holiday filled with pumpkin and squash -- has passed and now it is the time to switch gears COMPLETELY.

I actually stumbled upon an interesting recipe that might stand out at the multiple holiday parties you have on your calendar scheduled this month.

So take a look at the ultimate New Jersey themed dessert and it is known as the one, the only -- Pork Roll Pie

We can all thank Jake Hunt from Windy Brow Farm for creating this masterpiece. Now, let's dive in.

Just a heads up -- the recipe listed below makes two pies but who says that is a bad thing?


Premade pie crust/ Short bread pie crust

8 Tbsp. of Butter

2 Cups of Pecans

1/2 Cup of Chopped Figs

2 Cups of Caramelized Chopped Taylor Ham

1 Cup Dark Brown Sugar

1 Cup Corn Syrup
