This is not as weird as you may think. Have you ever had a fried bologna sandwich? If so, then this is just a better version of it. If not, why not? 🙂
I always thought that Fried Bologna was a southern thang. Turns out I’m wrong. When I married my hubs (from Ohio), he was a bigger fried bologna eater than me. Turns out it’s very popular in the Midwest, Appalachia, and the South. I heard that they make and sell fried bologna sandwiches at the concession stand at the Cincinnati Reds games. Must be where he came across it.
Not that long ago I decided to change up the sandwich a bit and I made a Fried Bologna Grilled Cheese. It was awesome. So I got to thinking the other day….hmmm…bet it would taste even better with an egg. It does. And I love Sour Dough bread, you know all those sandwiches at Jack in the Box that are made with Sour Dough bread? Love them.
This recipe makes one sandwich. If you need more than that, just adjust the serving size. For one, all you need is 2 slices of bread, 1 egg (if you’re really hungry, go for two), 2 slices of bologna and 2 slices of cheese.
How do you eat your bologna?
Fried Bologna and Egg Sandwich
Fried Bologna and Egg Sandwich. A fried bologna sandwich meets an egg sandwich and falls in love.
Heat a skillet and a griddle....or two skillets on medium high heat.
Butter 1 side of each slices of bread.
Place on pan/griddle. Butter top side of bread.
Place bologna in *sprayed* heated skillet. Cut slits if you don't want the middle to bubble up and not cook.
Add a slice of cheese to each slice of bread while the other side is grilling. The cheese will be melted by the time your sandwich is ready.
Remove bread from skillet/griddle if done. Place cooked bologna on top of cheese.
Fry egg in the same pan as the bologna to get the bologna flavor on the egg. **You may want to spray the pan before the bologna so the egg doesn't stick.
Place the egg on the bread. Close up. Slice sandwich in half and enjoy with some coffee.
