    Oh yeah, I’ve had a few of those, miracle whipe though, no real mayo. I haven’t had one in years. Almost makes me want to try one.

    Dearest Sue: Sweet memories! You can make my lunch anytime! My all time favorite sandwich in the world (I won’t tell anyone else that though, I’ll tell them it is chicken & whole grain bread!), that I ate for years and years. And, then I discovered thick sliced bologna was even better! I do like dill pickles on the side, though! And, of course, when I got older and learned to cook, I even made fried bolona sandwiches! Love, Joan

    Hee hee…the favorite lunch of every little girl like me who grew up in the 60’s…and before that too I’m sure!

    My first grade lunch of choice with PB&J (Jif and Welch’s grape jelly) running a close second! My metal lunchbox smelled like bologna the entire school year. I can still conjure up that smell in my mind, though I don’t think I’ve eaten bologna since elementary school.

    I’m hungry…

    I always had mine with Best Foods Real Mayo, while my sister always had hers with Miracle Whip. Then I discovered putting a slice of cheese on it and zapping it in the microwave for a few seconds.

    Put another candle on my birthday cake, and when you do a wish I;ll make… That is from the Sheriff John show…. Just wish the show was still around for my grandson to watch. But, I can still enjoy a bologna sandwich with him. Make with white bread only though…. thanks for the memories.

    I love plain bologna…right out of the package! My all-time favorite sandwich when I was in elementary school was P & J…smoooooth peanut butter, boysenberry jam (however, raspberry will be just fine, too) on bunny bread. Regular potato chips (back then, they came two waxed bags inside another bag). A glass of regular milk, two Hydrox sandwich cookies and an orange. The principal would come out to the lunch area with a Sharpie pen and draw faces on our oranges! I’d take mine home, show my mom and THEN eat it! Yep…those were the days!!!

    i wuv them with gulden’s spicy mustard but my baby sister likes hellman’s (only). but its the bunny bread that makes that sandwich…oh yes it does! (I heard that)

  9. Every once in a while, you just need a bologna sandwich. Mine would be without the lettuce and would include a slice of American cheese. Lots of mayonnaise would be necessary too!

    AHHH talk about comfort food! YUM

  11. Melissa says:

    Once you put the chips in, you had to sort of smash the sammich just a little bit so you can hear the chips *crunch*. Mmmmm good memories, thank you 🙂

  12. oh my
    …..I was at a Sorgum Festival last Saturday and we had fried bolonga sandwiches from the 4-H group. Mustard and lots of onions is the way they served it. Different Festival, different condiments but they all do the fried bologna sandwich.

  13. Jackie says:

    Oh wow….this sure brings back memories!! I agree, used to have it with Miracle Whip, chips and if left over, BAKED BEANS!!! I know its not good for you, but every once in a while, ya gotta have one of these….

  14. Jane Elbe says:

    Sounds good…except that I’ve always been a vegetarian ~ and my favorite sandwich was always potato chips on a buttered hard roll. So yummy…try it, you’ll like it!! And a candy bar for dessert!!

    Love, love fried bologna when I was a little girl. Of course it would bubble up and the yummy juices would fill the middle. NOt sure I could eat it today. 🙂

  16. Dear Sue,
    What memories you stir up! Didn’t every child learn to spell “b o l o g n a” from the Oscar Mayer commercial? My favorite recipe is attaching a small meat grinder to the edge of the kitchen counter and alternately grinding bologna with pickles, then adding a large spoonful of Miracle Whip, calling it “Ham Salad”! It was a favorite sandwich in our home in the 60’s and it still is to this day!

    And, of course, I go way back with Oreos, (BDS: Before Double Stuff!) I lost my first tooth on one! They’re so much better when you take them apart with your teeth, eating the cream first, then the cookies. Such a sweet addiction!

    Thanks for all your wonderful blogs! They’re just like “Letters from Home”!

    Take care & God bless!
    Love & prayers,

    Funny! I got a craving for bologna last week and picked up some Oscar Meyer bologna! Love it on soft white bread with a little butter!Love Susan Branch’s illustrations!!! I have a couple from some older cookbooks framed in the kitchen : )

    This is The Best Way to Eat Bologna Sandwiches….So Yummy Sweet Sue! xoxo Poof!♫♥ Now I’m Hungry! 🙂

    Nothing can touch a bologna sandwich, prepared exactly like you described! Have you ever had an egg in the hole w/bologna? It may have been a Missouri thing, but it was delish for a Saturday breakfast!

  20. Martha Ellen says:

    Susan my Daddy used to love bologna! We always had it at our home growing up! I don’t think we could have made it to school without it! Daddy would buy it by the roll and cut it into thick slices on bread with Duke’s Mayonaisse (we’re from the south) and a slice of cheese! Of course Mama would fry it sometimes and we loved it! I need to make one of these soon! Yummy! ♥♥

  21. Charlys says:

    My Daddy was from the South so we had fried bologna sandwiches on the week-ends when he was home to make them. Fried up till the edges were crispy, on soft white bread with mustard on one side to hold the bologna in place then crunchy iceberg lettuce, then plenty of mayo, to hold the lettuce in place. Plain potato chips, not “fancy flavored” ones, crunched up inside and a few on the side,
    we were in heaven…

  22. Robin says:

    What a coincidence. I had a bologna sandwich for lunch today. Bunny bread and mayo; I was out of mustard. Had puffed cheeto’s on the side 🙂


  23. Joan says:

    I made bologna sandwiches for my kids school lunches (60’s and 70’s) – they called them “gooey” sandwiches because I used bologna, sliced tomatoes, sliced cheese, mayo and lettuce for the ones that wanted it – they seemed “gooey” I guess. We were recently reminiscing about them – been years since I have made any – maybe time, huh?

  24. Gin says:

    Susan, have you ever heard of this-
    My dad used to get a stick of butter and pour molasses on it then he’d mush it with a fork and eat it. Makes me cringe but he loved it.

    • sbranch says:

      If it was maple syrup I could understand! Nope, but my grandfather “Willard” liked pork chop gravy on his . . . chocolate cake. So after that, anything goes. He also liked . . . Pickled pig’s feet. These are things you couldn’t pay me to eat!

  25. Joann says:

    I always fixed my girls ‘hat sandwiches’ which were bologna slices warmed in a pan til the middle swelled ‘up.’ Then pile ’em in a sandwich with mustard….and voila; hat sandwiches.

    LOVED the post…..

  26. Mary Stacey says:

    My mom made them without the mayo/Miracle Whip, but instead with slices of fresh, ripe, juicy beefsteak tomatoes picked from the garden. One of my favorite summer memories!

  27. Karen P says:

    Ha! That was my “cold lunch” that I took to school, it seems, for years! Except for some reason Fritos were “invented” about that time and I always got a little baggie of Fritos. I got sooooo sick of Fritos every day that it took me a long time ever to eat them again! xoxo…kp
