Why is this a special recipe?

Fried Bologna Sandwiches are classics, they are nostalgic and can bring back so many childhood memories. Fried Bologna has a similar taste to fried ham, but not exactly, obviously. Bologna is a combination of meats while ham is strictly pork.

Try this grilled cheese and turkey sandwich.

How should Bologna be fried?

You can spray your skillet with a simple non-stick cooking spray. I remember growing up and Mom fried the Bologna in a combination of Vegetable Oil and Butter. This really enhanced the flavor immensely.

How do I stop the bologna from curling as I fry it?

The best method I have found, other than using a bacon press, is to cut a small ‘X’ in the center of the bologna. This enables the bologna to open in the center which prevents the curling or rolling aspect.

How long should I fry the bologna?

You can fry the bologna until it begins to caramelize. This should only take a minute or two.

How to serve with Fried Bologna Sandwiches?

Fried bologna sandwiches can be served with a variety of side dishes, such as potato chips, French fries, pickles, or a side salad.
