Fried Bologna and Egg Sandwich
Don’t think less of me, but I like fried bologna sandwiches. There, I admitted it. It is not something that I regularly eat, but once in a while, I crave this no-nonsense, simple sandwich. I even make it the lazy way—by microwaving slices of bologna with one slice of good old American cheese and slapping them between two slices of toasted white sandwich bread. I don’t know why, but sometimes this humble sandwich (okay, two sandwiches) makes me as satisfied as any steak and potato dinner would. I know, totally weird.
Today, for you, I am going to take the time to dress up this guilty pleasure of mine. I don’t want to ruin the bologna experience by adding a bunch of other ingredients that would transform a perfectly simple sandwich into something it’s not. For me, the only thing that would make it better without violating my guideline of what a proper fried bologna sandwich should be is eggs…cooked over easy. The egg needs to be runny so that it oozes into the rest of the sandwich when broken. I also substituted the basic sandwich bread with beautiful brioche sandwich roll, buttered and toasted on one side.
Bologna has a bad rap. It is not something that you would want to serve your company. But if someone took the time to make this mouth watering sandwich for me, I would thank them sincerely and gleefully dig in. Yum!
