Did you know that bologna has been around since the 1400s?
Hailing from the town of Bologna in Italy, it made a big splash when Italian immigrants landed in New York City.
Bologna sausage and hot dogs are essentially the same meat, which is why they taste identical when grilled.
But since it’s sliced thinner than a hot dog, bologna grills in minutes. Perfect for busy days!
6 Slices Bologna
4 Slices of bread
2 Tbsp. Mayonnaise
2 Thick slices of tomato
2 Slices cheddar cheese
Layer 1 Tbsp of mayonnaise on two slices of bread.
Place a slice of tomato on top of the slices of bread with the mayo.
Add a slice of cheese on top of the tomato slices.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat on the stove and spray well with cooking spray.
Slice an x through the center of each piece of bologna, and place them into the skillet.
Fry for 3-4 minutes per side until caramelized and a bit charred.
Remove the cooked bologna, and place three slices on each sandwich.
Top each sandwich with the remaining pieces of bread and serve.
