My mom made this frequently when I was growing up, but she added cheddar cheese and a little bit of onion. We also would put it open-faced under the broiler just until bubbly. WOW! Great stuff! Also, I have made it using my food processor, but you have to be careful not to turn it into pate':)

Growing up in Kansas, we had these all the time in the school cafeteria. They were called "Schoolboy Sandwiches" and were always a favorite. Hadn't thought of them in years, but now I'm hungry for one! Thanks!

We make this all the time at our house. Only difference being we use dill pickes ground with the bologna. I have never tried using the seasonings but I will give it a try. Thanks!

I grew up in Miami on a similar ham salad. My GMa ground picnic ham in a hand-grider to make it, too. Miracle Whip and a tablespoon of yellow mustard gave it her own 'tang'. Instead of relish, she chopped up small gerkin pickles to add to the ham salad...I'm going to find my grinder and make this tomorrow! thanks for the memories!

I made this using ham instead of bologna. I also used mayo instead of Miracle Whip. Next time I will add a little cheese and onion, as another reviewer suggested.

Great ham salad, I can see why this is a favorite of Aaron. I followed this exactly except used Spam lite instead of bologna, (had on hand) but added the sweet relish, and followed suit with all other ingredients. What a great taste, and I served them on white bread points. Nice and very special tasting, there isn't one left for me! Great and will make again. Thank you!

Takes me back to growing up in Nebraska! When I was pregnant I CRAVED this stuff and was lucky enough to be able to get it at a local grocery store. Alas, the grocery store stopped selling it. I made this with dill pickles as I generally don't like sweet pickles. Gotta admit, it HAS to have sweet relish and next time mine will have sweet relish. DD is loving it as sandwiches for lunch, too. Pretty economical when you consider how many sandwiches you can get out of one lb of bologna for $5.00! Thank you!

I love this recipe......I just made it today. It is exactly the same as my mother used to make, but I did add some diced onion and celery and even a few chopped green olives. I used my old crank-type meat grinder, so that I didn't have the fear of over-processing it in my machine. I am letting it sit in the fridge right now, but can hardly wait for a sandwich on toast ! Thanks for posting this, Manda. Donna

Yummy!! I just used my little chopper to grind the bologna. I served with a quarter slice of american cheese on a ritz cracker. This was also great as a dip for wavy potato chips. I wanted to take a picture but we ate it too fast... maybe next time :)

I made this with left over ham from Christmas and it was delicious! I chopped it very fine with my manual food chopper. Served it on crackers and my kids even loved it! Thank you for such a tasty, quick, great recipe!!
