My Favorite Bologna or Ham Salad for Sandwiches

Recipe by CabinKat
READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 2 pounds


  • 1
    lb of your favorite bologna
  • 0.75
    (12 ounce) package sliced American cheese
  • 14
    cup sweet pickle relish
  • 14
    cup real mayonnaise (can use Miracle Whip)


  • Do not use Velveeta for this recipe, it does not store well.
  • I suggest a food processor for this recipe unless you prefer a meat grinder. Use a large bowl with tight lid for storing.
  • Take all the bologna out of the packaging and quarter.
  • Unwrap all the cheese slices (if in wrap) and quarter as well.
  • Place half the meat and half the cheese in processor and pulse until semi-chunky. It should look spreadable. Scoop in bowl.
  • Add remaining bologna and cheese, process.
  • Place rest in large bowl and add relish, mix well.
  • Add 1/2 of the mayo, stir. You can choose the consistency if you prefer. I like it a bit more mayonnaisy. Add rest if preferred.
  • You can use either Miracle Whip or real Mayo, both are great. I like the real mayo because it works better with crackers.
  • Serve on either a hamburger bun (kid's favorite), sandwich bread, or club crackers.
  • Store remaining spread in fridge, it can last up to one week.
