National Bologna Day!!
Yes, it’s National Bologna Day!! October 24th. You either love it or hate it.
Its origin came from the city of Bologna, Italy. It’s also believed to have been introduced to America by the Germans.
Bologna as it is known in America, can be eaten as is or, fried. Throw it on some toasted bread with pickles, onions, tomatoes, and lettuce. It can be served cold with cheese or chopped up and mixed with eggs, mayo, and veggies for a bologna salad.
The smell of fried bologna takes me back to my mom’s kitchen when she would make all my siblings and me a fried bologna sandwich for lunch. Have a hot bologna sandwich today and reminisce about your childhood. Simple and delicious.
Fried Bologna Sandwich
Butter for frying
2 slices of toasted white bread
Mayonnaise (put plenty on each slice of toast)
5 slices of bologna (slice the middle of each bologna slice so it will not puff up. Brown the bologna in a skillet)
