Bologna Spread

Written By: Chris - Jul• 10•13

Growing up, I remember my mom preparing “bologna spread”.  I am not sure exactly what she put in her recipe, but I used to just love it served on soft buns or crackers.  I’ve had it in various deli’s over the years, but everyone seems to make it different and I don’t care for it when made with sweet pickles.  I also think people have a personal preference whether they like real mayonnaise and/or Miracle Whip, which is sweeter and has additional ingredients than mayo.  I typically go for the real mayo and usually only use the whip in tuna type of salads.

While  I was putting my thoughts together for a recent camping weekend, I came across the lunch meat section at the grocery store and the package of bologna stood out to me so I decided to make the spread.  I combined it with some other ingredients that I had on hand and figured it would be a good, quick lunch option.  I also knew we would enjoy it on crackers while snacking and although I don’t think there is anything terribly healthy about it, it is really quick easy to make and is surprisingly delicious!

Ingredients:

1 package of Bologna, I chose Oscar Meyer
1/2 to 2/3 Cup Real Mayonnaise
1/4 Onion, chopped fine
1/2 Jar Dill Pickles, chopped fine
1 Tablespoon Sugar
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Start by chopping the onions and pickles in the food processor until very fine.  Remove and place into a medium sized mixing bowl.  Cut the entire package of bologna into four (like a pie) and place chunks into the food processor.  Pulse and chop the meat, scraping the sides until it is to your likeness for small chunks.

Combine the two and add the sugar and seasonings.  Mix in mayonnaise and mix until smooth.  Chill for at least 15 minutes for the flavors to blend.

Serve on dinner rolls, sweet Hawaiian bread or butter flavored crackers.

Enjoy!

Cheers!
