Fried Bologna Sandwich

I won’t bore you with my internal monologue about processed lunch meats. Let’s just say I went out on a limb.

And I’m glad I did.

This is a surprisingly tasty sandwich. Try one. You might like it. And while you’re munching, take a moment to appreciate the shear human ingenuity that goes into highly processed foods. Yes, they can be unhealthy, but as I learn more about food I occasionally find myself in awe of what people have been able to conjure.

Fried Bologna Sandwich Recipe

2 slices bread, lightly toasted
6 slices bologna (I used Applegate Farms Turkey Bologna)
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Yellow mustard, to taste

Warm a skillet over medium heat. Coat the bottom of the skillet with the canola oil. Put the bologna (You’ll probably have to do two batches unless you’re using a huge pan.) in the skillet and cook for approximately five minutes on each side or until it is lightly browned and bubbly.

Place all of the bologna on one slice of bread and top with mustard as desired. Place second slice of bread on top. Cut up into small sandwiches and serve.

Yield: 1 sandwich (cut into 4 mini sandwiches for a shared snack – or not)
Prep time: 20 minutes

  1. I have many fond memories of fried bologna. My kids have never even tried bologna, but I might have to change that, especially since Applegate farms has some. Their meats seem (and taste) a cut above the Oscar Meyer lunch meats of the world. :-)

  2. Have you ever made taylor ham sandwiches? My mom would fry the slices and we called them mexican hats. (thats what they look like when you fry them) They are sooo yummy!

  3. This brings back memories–my mom made these all the time. She’d cut little slits at 12:00, 4:00, and 8:00 (picturing the bologna slice as a clock), to keep it from curling up in the pan. She’d serve it on bread with a little mayo and sweet pickle. I’m sure my toddler would love it as much as I did.
