Hot Baloney Sandwiches

I love hot baloney sandwiches. The baloney is cut very thick, 1/2", & fried, served on a hamburger bun with a sweetish hot sauce with lettuce,tomato, & pickle. I come from West Virgina & these sandwiches are a staple at most local sandwich style restaurants. They are very sloppy to eat, you end up with sauce from ear to ear.

The best hot baloney sandwiches I ever had, along with the best hot dogs was at an A & W drive-in in Charleston, WV that is sadly long gone.

Since, we have been Hoosiers for almost 30 years, I make our own hot baloney sandwiches. I make a hot sauce with bottled chili sauce, lots or cayanne, brown sugar, & lemon juice.

    I like bologna biscuits. At our local favorite place to get breakfast sandwiches and biscuits, I order a burnt bologna biscuit.
    The bologna isn't really burnt, just browned nicely. I just like mine plain in the mornings, but I have seen some people get it with mustard, onion and chili.

    Fried bologna sandwiches seem to be a rarity on menus but there is a small place in Waldo, Ohio, which is locally famous for its fried bologna sandwiches. In addition, there is a little Mom and Pop restaurant in Hilliard, Ohio, which also has that on the menu and it seems to be popular. The entire menu is comfort food and all so very good. We have one friend with whom we meet to dine periodically and he zeros in on the bologna sandwiche every time.

    I think even a quasi-Reuben could be made with bologna. Sounds like it would work for me.

    The Red Door Tavern on West Fifth in Columbus has a great Hillbilly Hamburger and Hillbilly Cheeseburger. The G&R Tavern in Waldo has been featured on the Food Network and on CBS.

    I made a short lived attempt at selling smoked bologna, which we deep fried for a minute just before serving. It was very good but customers went more for the brisket and pulled pork. I still have a few folks asking for it, though.

    Fried Baloney Sandwiches are the main "gamefood" at High School Football games here in the Louisville Area. Each year when the local TV stations do their friday nite coverage of various games they always show the Pre-game tailgaters doing the Baloney Sanwiches with a large grill present , covered with those Frisbee-like discs.

    Here in Western New York, we fry baloney with onions in a skillet. Constantly turning until it is cooked on both sides. Then we put it on a fresh kaiser roll and add Weber's Horseradish mustard with a slice of swiss cheese. It is still one of my favorite sandwiches!

    Any reason NOT to try these suggestions with ordinary Oscar Meyer bologna? I'd buy a chub of unsliced, but I already have the OM on hand. Is it just too thin to fry? Thanks for your suggestions.

    Has anyone tried simmering the bologna in BBQ sauce for about 15-20 minutes and then finishing it off on the grill to give it a nice crunch?
    Best served on Wonder Bread.

    In my Jr. HS days, a favorite of the lunchroom staff was a thick slab of fried bolonga topped with a heap of (their) home-made mashed 'taters. Sides usually included fresh collard or turnip greens, cornbread, and peach or apple cobbler. Hmmm. ('Twas good!)
    ...Very good...

    No reason NOT 2 try. Fry more of yours to compensate for thickness. Buy thick cut next time.

    When I was a kid, 100 years ago, my mom made us fried baloney sandwiches quite often. Until I met ROADFOOD, I thought I was the only kid that ever ate them. My mother used regular thin sliced baloney and would cut 3 or 4 slits around the edges (to prevent it from curling). She would put a couple of slices of the crispy edged pieces on white bread for sandwiches for us. We loved it. I never saw or heard of them again until we started taking trips to Newfoundland and Labrador in the 80's. We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast place where we elected to have all of our meals. Once a week, "Newfie steak" was the entree. It was a really thick slice of baloney which was fried and put on the plate with our potatoes and vegetables. It was fine, but my mom's sandwiches were the best!

    I've been disapointed with OM lately... The stuff I buy at the store is almost flavorless with something like a hint of cardboard seasoning.. Used to live on the stuff, but now I have to pay the long dollar and get it sliced from the roll at the deli (not sure who makes it).. But I used to fry them thin slices and melt chez into them all the time... Awesome Munchy!

    I never heard of fried bologna either till I moved to Charleston, West Virginia in 1965. I couldn't believe anyone would something like that. Then, someone talked me into trying one. YUM!

    Peachpie9, I can't believe you've never had a fried balony sanwich. We grew up on them in Milwaukee. Now my kids in Cal. here beg for them. Fried with mustard on rye. It doesn't get any better than that.

    good stuff,I am intrigued by the mayor saying it is a staple at football tailgates. It's actually a great thing for that purpose,reasonable,easy and portable,leaving your other hand free to grasp a beer. If I ever go to another Buccaneer game(50-50 chance),we'll put a bologna in the car and field test it's popularity,thanks.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I think I could do a fried bologna sandwich in the company of say someone like Peter Jennings or Omar Sharif.(For those in the dark, supposedly those two find them somewhat of an aphrodesiac)

    Nancy's and Susie's on South 11th Street, right across the street from Piza Hut, in Niles, Michigan has great fried baloney sandwiches, just like my Grandma used to make!

    They also serve a great fried Baloney and eggs with toast and your choice of potatos or grits.


    A side note on Niles, in May 2004 whe George W. Bush came to Niles capagning for re-election, on that day the local MacDonald's in Niles, burned down..

    The cafe at Percy Priest Marina, just about a mile from my house, has a fine fried balogna sandwich. I wonder whether we could talk Dennis Hays into smoking one up for us next month? Al, whattya think?

    I grew up on fried Oscar Mayer bologna sandwiches, with a fried egg for breakfast and a slice of cheese if it was luch or dinner. And yes, both were dressed with Duke's mayo and French's mustard.

    Pete,
    I'll bet Hays would do it for us !! Now that would be a new version of the Texas Hot Link !! About a 30 inch (10lb.)tube. Trouble is, I like his other menu items so much I would probably ignore the Bologna !

    The place in Waldo, Ohio (right beside Rt. 23 between Marion and Delaware) which is famous for their fried bologna sandwiches is G.R.'s, it has been a small, but popular, family-owned business for years which uses a high grade bologna for their reknown sandwiches.

    The only way I can eat bologna is fried. I make four cuts in it, fry it in butter or margarine, and eat it on white bread. The butter soaks through the bread just a little bit and it is wonderful!

    I too was fed fried baloney sandwiches by my Mother. She did the same little cuts 'round the edges. Where do Moms learn those things? :)

    Shout out to North Carolinians: Do you remember, back in the 70s I guess, there was a restaurant in Charlotte that served ONLY fried baloney sandwiches? I never had the pleasure of eating there, but heard about it from a friend.

    Blue Smoke, in New York City (believe it or not) has a great grilled bologna sandwich with onions and a great sauce. I also love the grilled (Fried?) sandwiches that my mother would make with "Spam".

    Best to all.

    I prefer the Bryan thick-sliced to the OM, but either will do. Just make sure it gets good and crispy...

    your momma figured it out cause if you did not cut the edges, it curled up and you could not make a decent sandwich out of it.
