    I grew up on these at my German grandparents house. A cheep and tasty lunch. Gotta do the slits, gramma did spicy mustard, no mayo. She liked lettuce and slice pickle on hers. Really yummy.
    Shame on Brad for not mentioning who made that beautiful cutting board!

    I'm not really impressed with this video. Don't get me wrong, I love fried bologna, and there's nothing wrong with simplicity. But that sandwich is so basic that I really didn't need to watch a 15 minute video about how to make it. No tomato, no onions, no cheese?

  • Seth Edwards

    I like to get some thick slices of Wunderbar from the deli and grill em. Nothing on the sandwhich but some mustard, pepper, and tabasco. If I wanna be wild I'll make a slaw, or onion jam as a condiment.

    I grew up eating veal bologna. Scott Peterson. Sliced very thin. Added to a nice hot pan, with seven grain bread, sliced red onion, slice very thin with mayo. Sometimes lettuce. I'm craving it!!!!
