Fried BBQ Bologna SandwichesThese fried BBQ bologna sandwiches are so good that we made them twice this week already. Although I grew up eating my share of bologna sandwiches (on white bread with mayo), I never had fried bologna until I moved to the midwest. Dang, all those years missing out on such awesomeness!

Also try my Pool Room Bologna burgers. They’re crazy good too.
