National Bologna Day

Each year on October 24th, people across the nation make a sandwich to take part in National Bologna Day. This would be a good day to have a bologna sandwich for lunch.

Sometimes this specialty meat is spelled baloney since that’s how it is pronounced. However, the more common spelling is Bologna. That’s because it originated in the city of Bologna, Italy. It’s a type of sausage and is similar to the Italian mortadella. The finely ground pork or beef sausage is smoked and cured. Sometimes the sausage is a combination of both pork and beef. In Italy, bologna includes a variety of spices not found in American bologna. In fact, in the United States, regulations require American bologna to be finely ground and without visible pieces of lard. It hardly resembles anything found in Italy. It can also be made from chicken, turkey, venison or soy protein. 

Many people enjoy bologna sandwiches with a variety of garnishes. Some of those include mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, cheese, lettuce, pickles, tomato, and onion.

Bologna Bowl – When a slice of bologna is heated, the fat renders and the round slice takes the shape of a bowl which may be filled with cheese or other fillings.

There is a variety of different types of bologna:

  • German Bologna
  • Kosher or halal bologna
  • Lebanon bologna
  • Lauantaimakkara
  • Rag bologna
  • South African polony
  • Vegetarian

    Lebanon bologna is very spicy and makes a good item for a cold cuts tray or hors d'oeuvre. Weren't bologna people growing up. Had Oscar Meyer "cotto salami" sandwiches for most school lunches (cheese, mustard, mayo on the cheese side). Cotto I now learn means cooked in Italian.

    Nothing better than a Bologna, peanut butter and banana sandwich. YUM YUM. But it’s has to be thick cut Bologna.
