homemade ground bologna sandwich
Don’t you love ground bologna sandwiches? My mom used to make them with the meat grinder and they were good. When my husband came into the picture, he shared a secret ingredient his mom used to brighten up the color and I was surprised.
You can adjust the ingredients to your taste. Don’t like pickles as much, reduce the amount.
We make ground bologna sandwiches in small batches. We try to find the smallest package of ring bologna we can, so we can make 3-4 sandwiches.
This is a great sandwich spread to make for lunches. Make it larger batches for parties. You could also serve with butter crackers instead of sandwiches.
How does your family enjoy this sandwich spread?
1 cup dill pickles
1 cup miracle whip
1 teaspoon red powder drink mix (we use unsweetened strawberry drink mix…you can also use a cherry flavor instead) this is also optional
Using your meat grinder, remove the casing from the ring bologna and grind the entire ring. We use a low profile bowl or plate.
Grind the pickles next. If you do not have dill pickles, you can use relish instead.
Move the mix into a larger bowl for mixing.
Add the miracle whip and mix well.
Add your optional red fruit drink mix for color and mix well.
Serve on top of your favorite bread and enjoy.
Leftovers should be refrigerated. If you are sending with someone for lunch, be sure you have an ice pack in their lunch bag.
