... my faith in BHOers as being "on the ball," that is..... https://nationaldaycalendar.com/national-bologna-day-october-24/   I'm pretty sure I didn't make a sandwich, but I'm equally as sure that I peeled off a couple of slices for a quick evening snack.

Steve Martin would put bologna in his shoes so he would feel funny. Other than that I got nothing. I didn't even know they made bologna after 1965.

Dave used to love bologna. He'd buy a big chunk of it, cut it into thick slices and grill it. Or he'd just buy the sandwich type bologna and make a sandwich with it and lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapenos and lots of spicy mustard.

Me? I dislike the stuff and won't touch it.

Yep... bung bologna... doesn't get much better'n that!

Bung fritz: What is actually in South Australia's iconic smallgood  delicacy? - ABC News

 

As a kid it was a staple in our house.... first the natural casing, later supplanted by the vaccu-pak. 

I haven't traveled to eastern Canada much in the past decade, but some restaurants used to offer it as one of the choices with the breakfast special .... bacon, ham, sausage or bologna.  yes    Sausage is my default.... only because bologna isn't normally offered, in my neck of the woods.

One afternoon we stopped in at a lunch counter, but nothing on the sandwich menu struck my fancy, so I asked If they'd do a "custom made" one.  They were up for it, so .... "3/8" thick slice of fried bologna and a whack of onions... fried or raw doesn't matter."   The chef did not disappoint!!

an old golf course we used to play at,, we called the goat farm had a snack bar and a guy named george run it. at the turn we would always go in there and get one of his fried bologna samiches. he would cut it about 3/4 inch think fry it up good and brown on both sides,, and put lettuce, mater and mayo on it. it was usually the highlight of my day on the course.

Locally, Marin's BBQ grills a one inch slice and serves it blackened and smokey on a bun with sauce, good stuff. About once a year I a get a craving for it and fry up several slices of the thin stuff until semi-crisp and stuff it between white bread with mustard, onion, and pickle.

Only ever had that after I moved down South. Good eating, but not cardiologist approved.

Never had it, but I like lunch meats and I suspect I’d quite like Bologna - I’d definitely give it a go.

Mortadella is Bologna's upscale cousin, with even more fat, usually sliced paper thin and eaten cold, good stuff.

Well, Jonty, then you ain't lived!!!    cheeky   

 The all-knowing Google/Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bologna_sausage says in UK it's called "polony."     From the wiki site, I'd say it has world-wide appeal.

I like it too! I only have it a few times a year though. It's not about the baloney it's the white bread, although my diabetes is well under control there's lots of carbs in it.

I call them ghetto baloney sandwiches. I buy a pack of sliced baloney about 3'' thick. White bread. Kraft slices & margarine & use plain yellow mustard. Just like when I was a kid.

I will polish of the whole loaf of bread & everything in about 3 days! Wracked with guilt! Wifes'brothers & sisters called it skunk butt! It does have a faint whiff of skunk I think.

Back in the day us boys would have 'Newfie steak & eggs for breakfast. Slice off a thick slice & throw it in the frying pan. When it browns up & goes into that cupped shape crack an egg on it. Pour a little water in the pan & put a lid on it until it sets up. Now I'm getting Hungry!

I liked bologna! Haven't had it since I was a kid, though. Baloney sandwiches for lunch, nothing fancy. I didn't even know about fried until much later, have thought about trying it but never got around to it.

I have to wait until the Mrs. is away to fix wieners & beans. She can't stand the smell, and beans make her sick.

I put enough junk in my diet as it is.

You Prairie guys didn't even mention kielbasa.

Evidently, there are a lot of things in this world I have never heard of.
That being, fried bologna is not one. I love it. Have not yet tried it grilled. I think it would be great though.

Thanks Owen.  We had Polony as a kid in the late 70s but I'm not sure it was the same, it was more of a paste and in much smaller tubes, there's no way you could have grilled it.  Maybe next time I'm inclined to make som summer sausage, I'll look up a recipe and try and make some.  I did a quick search and I can buy it wholesale here, 3lbs for approx 150 Canadian Dollars

Bologna is to me, flattened hot dogs and whatever you can do to a hot dog you can do to a sheet of bologna and vise -versa. I eat bologna sandwiches at least 3 or 4 days a month. With tomatoes and onion and lettuce, fried with cheese on toasted sandwich. Just plain on roll with mustard,…or .my Dagwood:…French bread, bologna, onion, pickles, tomatoes, stuffed olives, more bologna mustard mayo and lettuce and whatever else is loose in the refrigerator….I even toss a few potato chips on the top sandwich…….dam….I’m drooling again…. We once had a deli near here where the owner made homemade German bologna….The days he had it there were lines 3 blocks long waiting to buy it. We’d by it in a roll and slice off thick piece…. Heaven…..did I mention I also had a heart by-pass a couple years ago? Lol

Hated bologna as a kid and I'm talking the Oscar Mayer kind. Butcher shop homemade bologna is good and I love a good ring bologna.
We didn't have a lot of bologna but we ate a ton of summer sausage. Fried summer sausage is phenomenal !!! Salty tangy fried goodness on toast with a nice slice of raw onion and a little ketchup please!!! Fried summer sausage and egg sandwich was a staple too .

I'd never thought of frying summer sausage - that's another on the list.  You can't buy it here so I have to make it -it's one of the few things that I like putting franks type mustard on.  I need to get the grinder out.

I'm sat in the car outside a wool shop waiting for my wife to buy her crochet supplies. It's lunchtime and I'm hungry - man you are killing me!

...couple of reasons for that Paul: ...  first off it's coo-bis-saw*.   ...second off, IMNSHumbleO, it's niche is at stags** ... after a couple of wobbly pops.   

I remember [mis]hearing this dude's name https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Gubicza for the first time and thinking: "Well, whudda ya know?"

* = actually I don't know the proper pronunciation... just that it was coo-bis-saw for the first 40 years of my life... even among our Polish and Ukrainian neighbours, as I recall.

** = it's been quite a few years...   but I can still remember them.   [Actually, if there's enuff mustard, it's okay any time.]

That (yours) was the pronunciation I used to hear from guests on CBC's Morningside with Peter Gzowski. In T,O, it was pronounced "kuh-BOSS-uh".

That guy played for the wrong Royals.

That is as bad as pronouncing capicola as "gabagool".

Hot dogs are skinny bologna. They fit into buns with mustard and onions.
Mom packed some high school lunches with loaded buns and cold hot dogs.
We knew how to plug the wieners into the wall 110VAC and use resistance heating to cook them.
All the "No-People" had cold lunches in winter.
