Question

I went to buy a chunk of bologna, to grind up for sandwiches and the butcher asked me if I wanted beef, which cost more or the cheaper one. I said, what is in the cheaper one and she said lots of different things. What is in it, does anyone know?

Varying cuts of pork, chicken and turkey in no particular order. The main ingredient would be listed first, followed by the lesser.

Beef bologna has a distinct taste and I prefer the cheaper for the flavor.

as kids we stayed with our German grandma in the summer and there was a deli where she got the freshest, best tasting bologna---served with "store-bought" Mrs. ButterKrust bread, mayo, tomato and lettuce it was the most delicious lunch (she called it dinner) in the world! Grandpa would tease us and say that we wouldn't know what was in bologna--ha

LOL - I don't know any reputable BBQ joint in TX that doesn't have BBQ (smoked) bologna on the menu. I especially like it from one of the places that have revolving racks in the smoker ... so the juices from the chickens, briskets, ribs drip down over it as they smoke.

How you gussey it up with condiments is up to you. I like mine on a bun with a slice of onion, tomato, lettuce, and BBQ sauce.

When I was a kid ... we just threw a slice in a skillet and browned it - put it between two slices of white bread with MicacleWhip ... and whatever else we could find.

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.

It was my first and only too!! I did think that the linen table cloth, old China plate and Waterford Crystal Wine Glass was quite a contrast to the ubiguitous "loney" sammich however!! Fine dining at it's finest!

You could set a can of Spam and package of saltines on that table and it would look like fine dining at its finest!
