I'm not sure how I missed this post the first time around..... but that has to be the finest gourmet bologna sandwich I have ever seen, UB. A little too
gourmet for me
, but I'd sit down and eat one with you, that's for sure. Oh, it's also the only
gourmet bologna sandwich I have ever seen
Bologna sandwiches at my house when I was a kid consisted of white bread, the sliced meat, am cheese and lettuce. Or just straight up with some yellow mustard and the bread. Never fried, but the neighbor fried theirs. So as I grew older I started frying it too and said, hey, this is pretty good
Nowadays if I have it with mayo I might add the cheese or some tomato, but have lost the taste for the lettuce. Probably from eating too many warm sandwiches this way until the switch from brown bags to lunch coolers occurred.....
And like someone else said, too much meat ruins the sandwich. After all, you're eating bologna, not steak
One thing's for certain though, its gotta be Smith's bologna. Those pale looking ones or the prepackaged stuff just won't do. I like their ring bologna, too. Made nearby in Erie, so I'm not sure how widespread their meats are.
