Fall in the Midwest often takes us by surprise. The crisp air, the smell of the leaves, and the return the sandwich! If your family is like mine, we tend to eat in more when Fall arrives. To us, autumn means comfort food, the return of family meals … And the hearty sandwich.
More reason to celebrate! October 23 is National Bologna day. Does it get any better than that? When was the last time you treated your family to a new twist on the Fried Bologna Sandwich? Well pull out your favorite griddle, a spatula and your favorite Klosterman Bread. It’s time for a great sandwich tradition.
In my kitchen, we gather …
2 slices Klosterman white bread with vitamin D (tastes GREAT grilled)
1 slice bologna
1/8 teaspoon oil
1 slice Provolone cheese
1 tablespoon spicy mustard
Slices of onion, tomato and lettuce
Put oil in a frying pan and heat to med. high.
Put slit in bologna from middle to all the way through the end.
Put bologna in heated oil. Brown both sides.
Add cheese to top while last side is browning.
Spread mustard on both sides of bread.
Add bologna between slices, dress with condiments of your choice … And start celebrating National Bologna day!
Cheers! From our family to yours …
School’s back in session, which in our families means it’s back to sandwiches, snacks and more when our kids head off to school. We thought this might be a good time to head-off the traditional PB&J boredom with sandwiches that we’ve found are not only fun, different and interesting – but a tasty treat as well. We’ve taste tested this tangy turkey treat in our families. Give them a shot with yours! Enjoy!
