TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP)–  Gov. Chris Christie has weighed in on an ongoing debate involving a popular pork sandwich in New Jersey. So, is it a pork roll or is it Taylor ham?

Christie said Wednesday on 101.5 FM that the sandwich popular in diners across the state should be known as a “Taylor ham, egg and cheese.”

Many in the northern part of the state call the processed meat Taylor ham, while those in the south call it pork roll. Christie is from Livingston in northern New Jersey and lives in the northern part of the state as well.

The issue came up when a state lawmaker recently introduced legislation to designate the meal the state’s official breakfast sandwich.

Legislation might not be necessary to settle the dispute: Christie says he may issue an executive order.
