"I grew up only knowing this by Ham Salad which is what my Mom and local Deli's up North called it. She said it was the "Poor Man's Ham Salad" which never contained any ham, just bologna, but giving it the wonderful flavor and color of what could have been ham. We loved it. I made it for my children as they grew up and it is still requested though they are adults now. I am in my 50's and still make it for myself as a snack spread or sandwich. I've seen a variation of recipes for this, tried some and still think mine is my favorite. Let me know what you think?"

"My DD and I just LOVE this stuff! Another idea is to use whole dill pickles and run that through the meat grinder with the bologna ... that adds a whole 'nuther kick to the flavor of the sammie. We decided to skip the cheese, though, so as not to adulterate the pure pleasure of the bologna. Memories of childhood lunches at school! *Made for Spring 09 PAC*"
"I've never tried grinding everything together. I grew up on fried bologna or fried spam sandwiches. So good. Sometimes we chop up the fried bologna or fried spam and mix it in egg for an omlette sandwich. Awesome for breakfast, lunch or dinner."
"YUM! This is soul comfort food at it's best. Seriously good, and filling too! I used bologna (low-fat) and a nice muenster cheese. Loved it! I follow this exactly and will make again. It is absolutely great on crackers, saltines. So good! Thanks for sharing! Made for Think Pink 2011"
"sounds wonderful! I grew up on this but using Spam (lower sodium) is not as salty. Thanks for this. I'm heading out to buy bologna now!"
