How to Make a Fried Bologna Sandwich

After I shared a scrapbook layout with some friends on Friday night, it was brought to my attention that there are some unfortunate souls out there in the world who do not know how to make a fried bologna sandwich… indeed– there are some who don’t even know what they are. Tragic, isn’t it? So, ever compassionate to their plight, I made the ultimate sacrifice of having a fried bologna sandwich for breakfast yesterday so that I could make the following tutorial.

You will need:


You will need a frying pan, bread, mayo, and of course, bologna.

Step One: Put your mayo, or miracle whip, on your bread.


Step Two: Put two slices of bologna into your frying pan. Put three slits in the edges of the bologna and one in the middle (see example below). This is very important, it will help your bologna to cook and keep it from shrinking up.


Step Three: Cook the bologna. How long this takes depends on your personal tastes… I don’t like mine quite as brown as other people do. You can see what mine looks like when I’m done below… it will bubble up in the middle, this is good, it’s supposed to do that! When your first side is done, use a fork to flip it over.


Step Four: When your bologna is fried to your specifications, use your fork to remove it from the pan. Put the bologna on your mayo-ed bread. Put the sandwich together, and enjoy!

    Great little tutorial. Just the way I do it except that I use Mayo instead of Miracle Whip and I add a slice of cheese. It is tragic that some people have never experienced the joys of fried bologna.

    Would you believe I never had one of these as a kid? Didn’t have my first until I was a newlywed, and my husband wanted to make dinner but found nothing in the fridge. Oh, it was soooo yummy! I’d make them for my own son but, well, I know I’d wind up having one. Or two. Or more.

    Besides, I don’t like sharing my bologna. 😛

    Oh no! You ruined it with the Miracle Whip. Duke’s or at the very least Kraft or Helmans Rela Mayonaise, not the MW. Gross!!! 😯

    I love fried bologna sandwiches–no cheese but lettuce(has to be Duke’s mayo). I used to pay a mint for them! Yes, they are on the menu at a little sandwich shop close to where I use to live.

    Great tutorial. Just like how my father makes his sandwiches!

    Reading your first viewer comment, I had to chuckle. Some households are divided when it comes to mayonnaise and miracle whip. :-)
