How do you improve on the regular bologna sandwich? Turn it into a fried bologna sandwich! Just fling the bologna onto a lightly buttered griddle or nonstick pan, and fry it up until it's browned. The thicker the cut of bologna, the better, so ask for it from the deli counter instead of buying it prepackaged. A Southern favorite right behind tomato sandwiches, many people add a variety of things to their fried bologna sandwich, like tomatoes, chili, slaw, fruit jelly, or mustard.
Prep Time: 5 minutes

1. In a nonstick sauté pan, add oil, and heat over medium-high heat. Add bologna to the pan, and cook until brown on each side about 1 to 2 minutes each. Top with the slice of cheese, and remove the pan from the heat.
