My Mother always made this for our school lunches and now I make it but I add salt,pepper,onion,and sweet pickle relish. I don't measure anything I have made it for so long that I just guess. I also grind everything with a food grinder. Love It Read More

Whether it's made with Bologna, Ham, or a combination of both (which is what I'm most familiar with) this makes for a delicious sandwich. It's still being served in sandwiches at parties. My mom always added a bit of finely diced celery & onions, along with the sweet pickle relish. She never added eggs, but some people did, in order to 'stretch' the meat. I still make this spread sometimes, and bring the sandwiches to gatherings. Everyone loves it, and requests my recipe. Read More

YUMMY! This is almost exactly what my grammy made for me as a kid. The only thing I changed was I added a bit of mustard. And dill pickles not sweet. I didn't really go by the measurements just kind of made as much as I need for that day and mix it until it "looks good". I love these so much I had to have them at my wedding! I bet this had to be the oddest request a wedding caterer ever had for a finger food buffet. Read More

I think this is the kind of recipe that appeals mostly to those who have grown up eating it. My mom made this dish often when we were little and occasionally she would switch it up a bit by chopping the bologna and eggs adding minced onion and mixing it with an oil and vinegar dressing. My grandfather was a butcher so we always had good German bologna in the house. If you're lucky enough to have a German butcher store in your area I'd suggest going for the couple of extra bucks instead of using bologna from the grocery store. Haven't had this in years and I must say it brought back a lot of memories. Thanks so much Margaret! Read More

Maybe it was the brand of bologna that I used but the spread turned out to be not quite as good as I thought. Read More

Just like Mom used to make. I substituted ham for the bologna and used Miracle Whip instead of mayo. Read More

Surprisingly good. I used dill pickles instead of sweet (personal preference. I didn't measure anything I just threw enough together to make a nice snack. Read More

I made this early this morning and whirred it in my food processor before letting it set in the fridge. The only changes I made was using dill pickles instead of sweet and I added a quarter of a chunked yellow onion fresh garlic and a little fresh ground pepper. The bologna I used was bought at my local deli counter. I'll update my review once we've had some for lunch. EDITED: Good though I think it needs a little mustard. Not much a tablespoon or so. Adding the onions and garlic was a smart move. We all liked this. Read More

This is a childhood favorite of mine. We always used Miracle Whip instead of real Mayo but substituting ham for bologna makes it ham salad not bologna salad. Not the same thing! I've tried making it without the sweet pickles and it just doesn't have the same zing. Now I'm wishing I had bologna in the house:\ lol Read More
