You don't need the oil--bologna fries in its own fat (like bacon). And mustard would ruin the sandwich. All you need is bread, bologna, and cheese.
Just bought some bologna ends at the store. Found the recipe. Good cheap, white bread, mustard, fried bologna, done and down. Good memory.
I ate a ton of Bologna Sandwiches growing up! Ours were pretty basic, a thick slice of good bologna on white bread with a little mayo and mustard..and that's still my favorite. It had been ages since I'd had one, so I just had to make one for old times sake and it was as good as I remembered! Ahh, the childhood memories associated with these....
Grew up on these things. Try it with lettuce on a hard roll. It's outstanding with Mister Mustard. Best mustard out there.
I grew up on fried bologna sandwiches...in my opinion there are four ways to fix a bologna sandwich....In the summer: white soft bread, homegrown tomatoes, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Anytime: bologna and american cheese on white bread with mustard. Now fried bologna: fried egg and bologna on white or rye bread (bread has been spread with butter/oleo and grilled prior to putting egg/bologna on bread. The one we grew up on: fried bologna on white toast with mayo. Good old bologna or as my dad called it: Georgia round steak!!
This is the best comfort sandwich. My mother made this for us growing up. Be sure to use very soft fresh bread and we have purchased the "chubs" of bologna and made thick slices. Thanks for the reminder to make this for my family!
Never had a fried bologna sandwich before. I made this with a kraft cheese slice (I'm in Canada) and for whatever reason I had the instinct to put fresh sliced onions on it (and I'm not an onion fanatic either). It was fanfreakintastic!!! I didnt use the oil to fry because bologna comes with it own tbsp per slice.... lol. Thanks!!! Must try with fresh onions!
I also really like these. They are not gourmet, but simple filling food! I ate these every night for a month during my first pregnancy (I also like mine meaty--3 slices bologna!) Lots of mustard and I skip the oil. Also, listen carefully while it cooks...the bologna kinda squeals (like a piggy) when it fries...a little creepy :) Also, I just do 3-4 small slits around the edges, not to the middle (still helps keep it from curling.)
I enjoyed this sandwich a lot! I bet it is even better with beef bologna and not the fat free that I had on hand. Will be making again soon!
This definitely elevates the lowly bologna sandwich to something special! I don't buy bologna very often, but my 3-yr-old does enjoy it in a sandwich, so when it was on sale I decided to buy it and try this specific recipe. So glad I did! I plan on skipping the cheese next time and replacing it with a bit of dill pickle relish...yum! Thanks for a really great recipe!
