Fried Bologna Sandwich Ingredients
For each fried bologna sandwich, you will need:
2 slices of bread
1 slice of bologna (beef bologna fries best)
Before adding the bologna to the pan, cut 4 slits an equal distance apart in the bologna around the edges. Each slit should be about an inch wide. This allows the bologna to fry without curling up.
Add the bologna. No oil is needed. Fry both sides until the bologna is browned however you like it. I like my fried bologna crispy and almost blackened around the edges. My husband likes his barely browned.
Slap the slice of bologna on the bread.
That's it! You're done and have a slice of heaven in your hands.
Of course, this is a basic fried bologna sandwich recipe how to. Add your choice of condiments. Both mayonnaise and mustard are good. Some like ketchup.
Add anything else to a fried bologna sandwich that you like on any other sandwich. You can add cheese, (best if you melt it). American cheese is normally used, but cheddar or any favorite cheese is good. Also try tomatoes, onions, lettuce, or any combination. I know a few people that fry up an egg as well and add it to a fried bologna sandwich for breakfast.
Some people like to make theri fried bologna sandwich with toasted bread instead of fresh bread.
Personally, my favorite version of a fried bologna sandwich is just fried bologna and onions, with salad dressing (not mayo), on bread. I use raw onion, not caramelized. I like two slices of bologna or thick sliced bologna, too, not just one.
(Sorry, but I got a kick out of adding the cooking term 'caramelized' in a paragraph about fried bologna sandwiches.)
