The Fried Bologna Sandwich Is A Southern Classic
American Southerners claim the fried bologna sandwich as a classic southern dish, and generations of Southern children have enjoyed bologna sandwiches hot from the school cafeteria or local roadside diner. This lunchtime staple may be quite different from cold bologna sandwiches, but they're almost as easy to make.
German immigrants, many of whom settled in Southern Appalachian states, likely brought bologna to America, which is why the cold cut is still very popular in the south today. A fried bologna sandwich requires soft, white sandwich bread, a slice or two of packaged bologna, a slice of cheese, mustard, and either mayo or ketchup.
To make this southern classic, melt butter in a skillet, cut an "X" into the middle of the bologna slices so they lay flat in the pan, then fry them in the butter until browned on both sides. Place a cheese slice on top of the bologna to melt, spread mustard on two bread slices, add the bologna and cheese between the slices, and there you have it.
