Fried Bologna, or Fried Baloney, is one of those old school sandwiches. Soft white bread, a schmear of mustard and crisp fried bologna!
FRIED BALONEY SANDWICH
TIPS FOR MAKING FRIED BOLOGNA:
- For those of you who have enjoyed a fried baloney, you are probably particular about the way you like yours. There are all kinds of techniques and toppings and condiments folks like. And you probably like it whatever way yo Momma made it. And of course, that will always be the right way.
- But if you haven't, it really is delicious. If you don't cut any slits in it, it will puff up into a bowl shape. I like to cut out little triangles and fry those separate for a separate crisp treat but you can just cut slits too.
- If tomatoes are in season, a nice ripe slice of tomato on top is outta this world. It's all on what you grew up with. But no matter what you put on it, it is still a cheap but yummy sandwich that takes you back to your childhood.
1-2 tbsp. salted butter (or margarine)
4 thick slices bologna

*any other condiments you like; mayo, sliced tomatoes, sliced cheese, pickles, lettuce
