Baloney / Bologna Gravy

"I was raised on this recipe, my grandmother made it, my mother made it, and I make it at least twice a month. Back in my grandmothers time, feeding 8 children, you made due. To this day, my children could have sausage, or bacon gravy for breakfast. They want baloney gravy every time. Don't let the name scare you off, This is very good."

Ready In:


  • 6 -7 slices of good bologna
  • 14 cup oil, approximately
  • flour
  • 12 glass milk
  • 12 glass water
  • salt and pepper


  • Take your Bologna and cut all 6-7 pieces at the same time, in about 1 inch squares.
  • Put oil in pan and lightly brown Bologna.
  • Add flour to thicken the oil, it is really hard to say exactly how much flour, it is just like making any other gravy.
  • I also add the pepper, we like alot of pepper in ours, it just depends on your taste.
  • I take the milk and water in the same glass and slowly pour it into the pan, stirring constantly until you have gravy.
  • Serve over bisquits, with a couple of fried eggs on the side, and you got yourself one good breakfast.

  1. Bacon grease people, a must. Also we only watered down the milk when times were really tight. This is how we got rid of bread ends. Mom saved them in a bread bag in the freezer, when the bag was full she toasted up the bread, tore or cut into bite size pieces. Filled up a plate with a pile of toast chunks and covered in bologna gravy. Delicious. This first time I served it to my city slicker husband he gave me the strangest look, began to move small pieces around the plate. Finally took the smallest bite, with napkin in hand ready to spit it out. He did not need the napkin, ended up licking the plate clean and asked if there was any more. Bologna and gravy over toast, tried and true, Delicious
  2. oh my goodness, whatever you do- don't try using cheap bologna! icky!
  3. I used a combo of oil and butter, and I used Boarshead Bologna (a really good brand of meats), and added a bit of garlic and onion. I ate mine with eggs. I recently decided to try buying bologna again... it's been since I was a teenager; but making sure to purchase the quality brands. Bologna doesn't necessarily equal "cheap meat." :) Good comfort food!
  4. Away from the barbeque I am not a cook by any stretch of the imagination however this recipe was fairly easy once I got the gravy part down since I never made gravy before. After having used too much flour and thinning it down with more milk and water this turned out exactly as I remember it as a child.
