Fried Bologna Sandwich Recipe: Don't Judge This Humble Sandwich Recipe Until You Try It

Diamond art wasn't the only thing I discovered during the coronavirus pandemic – my husband and I rediscovered our love for fried bologna sandwiches. Needless to say, bologna was never on my shopping list, but for some reason when stocking up at the beginning of the pandemic, everything was fair game again.

For me, a fried bologna sandwich is simple: fresh white plain ol' sandwich bread (think  Mrs. Baird'sSunbeam), super-crisp fried bologna, Muenster cheese and Dijon mustard. That's it. No toasting of the bread and no fancy toppings. Serve with chips (Puffed Cheetos ups the ahhhh factor) and you're done. Here's how to make what I believe is the perfect fried bologna sandwich.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

You'll need:

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cut slits on the outer edges of the bologna. (This keeps it from puffing up in the middle, a trick I learned from my grandma.)
  2. Put the bologna into a hot frying pan. When the first side is browned, flip them over.
  3. Add slices of cheese to one of the bologna slices. Top with the other piece of bologna. Fry until crisp and browned on both sides and cheese is melting out into the pan. 
  4. Spread Dijon mustard, mayonnaise or Miracle Whip onto the bread slices. Top with the hot bologna. Add any additional toppings you desire. Serve hot.

Mmmm! I remember this sandwich from my childhood but haven't had one since. Great tip about cutting slits in the bologna. Same thing happens when I fry salami, so I'm going to try this with salami, too. Thanks for the yummy comfort food idea, Donna John !

Not sure what made me buy bologna again when I was stocking up for pandemic, but it's continued. Free COVID pass to eat it? lol It does bring back memories and there's just something about it. Comfort food in sandwich form. My mom used to fry salami, too. Think that just made it on my shopping list for next week, lol. Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds
