    Awww nah, when you split them weenies and fry them they have a distinctly different taste than fried baloney, then Spam is an altogether different delight for the pallet. There is no bad among these heart healthy diet choices, only the difference in taste, all are equally tasty in their own right.

    In Pennsylvania we have scrapple. It’s basically what isn’t of a high enough quality to go in a hot dog, but it taste awesome with eggs for breakfast.

    Smoked beef balogna is highly edible. One can smoke it then slice off a good slab and sear it in a pan or on the griddle or grill it by the slice.

    A good mustard is the right condiment to me, I like it on bologna better than barbecue sauce. But I have had it with slaw and barbecue sauce as well, and I did not leave any scraps behind.

    OK, I have to break ranks here. I would be content if I never saw another piece of baloney in my life. Always hated that stuff, even as a kid. I'd eat it because Mom served it, but never liked it. There was a radio commercial for a local company where the guy would say, "I don't like baloney of any kind." Implying he could be trusted. I always loved that line.

    I'll take a tuna melt any day.

    Tell you what I did like was a livermush (like scrapple) sandwich with fried onions. I think livermush is mainly a NC thing. Can't find it in TN and pretty hard to find in SC. Neese's was the brand everybody got. They make sausage too, wrapped in wax paper. Beautiful.

    That was my lunch today, and I had a sneaking suspicion that you were referring to this not so well known American Classic :)

    Curiosity: are Bologna and Mortadella the same?

    Quality beef bologna can be found, such as Boars Head. My favorite is Zeiglers. I was never a big fan of fried bologna, seemed like a kids idea, or desperate end-of-semester student food, till I had a sandwich in NOLA recently. Incredible. Some kind of local made hot sausage bologna.

    BTW, I keep a "cracker size" stick of bologna, ~2.5" diameter, in the fridge at all times. Fav snack with cheese, and saltines.

    Mortadella is even better than baloney because it’s basically the same, only with big chunks of lard mixed in. Yum! You can also get the kind with pistachio mixed in.

    Ring baloney fried,toasted bread with Duke's mayo (all other mayo is ****),and a fried egg either well done but over easy is better.
    Another great American sandwich is banana (sliced not mashed) with peanut butter or mayo,sometimes peanut butter on one side and mayo on the other side.

    Philly bred here. Taylor pork roll indeed. It's probably got a months worth of sodium in it, but it makes a good sandwich

    Understood. So, here we call both Mortadella, but what you call "Bologna", here is called "bad Mortadella"... Fortunately, it appears that THE Mortadella ("the good version") is internationally known...

    Here we have Mortadella with pistachios, olives and also black pepper seeds.

    And I'm very happy now, because I have just discovered that my dinner will be... bread with Mortadella...

    That looks a lot like a typical Bavarian dish called Leberkaese. It's probably the exact same thing, just called something different stateside. Get you some German mustard if you can find it. If you find Senf you got the right stuff. Try it out. It won't piss you off.
