Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 1 1/2 quart baking dish.

  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the bologna slices in the hot skillet until browned on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Wipe excess grease from the skillet, reduce heat to medium, and stir in the butter and onion. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir the onions into the warm mashed potatoes.

  • Spread half of the mashed potatoes into the prepared baking dish. Layer with half of the fried bologna, and sprinkle with half of the cheese. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

  • Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly, and the center is hot, about 30 minutes.

EXCELLENT, but read on, and you will be convinced to try it: I run 2 brewpubs in Portland, Oregon serving casual dining style entree plates. I saw this and Emailed it to my friend, as a joke. He routinely takes our brewpub meals, cuts the perfect plate presentation into small bites, & mixes everything with ketchup before eating it with a fork. I always make fun of him, and thought he would appreciate the joke. FAST FORWARD TO LAST NIGHT: To my shock, he prepared it as part of a Saturday barbecue. We giggled, drank beer, finished cooking the "real" food and sat down to eat. Result? Hands down, the hit of the barbecue with adults and kids alike. Obviously, it won't replace a main entree, but it's a super simple and shockingly great side dish. Use extra bologna, almost double. Read More

This was way to heavy on the mashed potatoes and should have been in an 8x8 pan rather than a 9x13. It should have either more bologna added as 8 didn't cover the 9x13 pan so everyone would receive some meat or reduce the potatoes to 3. I would still use an 8x8 pan as the layer was really thin with 9x13. I will not make this again, although I like fried bologna and mashed potatoes, as I didn’t think it made a nice presentation or was all that flavorful. I was disappointed as I do like the individual ingredients. Read More

Never thought of doing this in a casserole. Many years back my mom would use french bread and spread the potato and onions mixture on the bread then place a slice of bologna and top with cheese then put in broiler till cheese is melted. Was very yummy Read More

I love this recipe. It is different version from what I grew up with. My Mom would make what we called "bologna boats...she would lay the bologna on a cookie sheet, add the mashed potatoes and cheese and put it under the broiler and the bologna would curl up and hold the potatoes and cheese like a cup!

I made this because I had all the ingredients. My husband gave me a sneer when I told him what was in it. Then he ate and was telling his friends about it for the next week. It's a keeper! Read More

This was amazing! It was super easy and really quick. I used instant potatoes (not nearly as good as real but I was in a big hurry). I love fried bologna sandwiches with ranch style beans. I think next time I make it I may try adding a can of ranch style beans on top of the potatoes. Thanks for a quick and simple delicious recipe! PS-- this was even better the 2nd day once the bologna and potatoes had time to "meld" Read More
