Sesame Fried Bologna Sandwich

You know that time when no one is around and you are the only one home, and hungry to boot? Well, when that happens to me, I often come up with some crazy thing to eat, and this sesame fried bologna sandwich is no exception. For one, I am a huge fan of a fried bologna sandwich, and one that needs to get more attention on menus, and when you add a twist of sesame oil, and a great bagel, well then you are are in for pure pleasure.

Let’s get started.

  • 1 1/2 thick inch of beef bologna
  • 1 tbsp dark sesame oil
  • 1 whole shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 slices of yellow American cheese
  • 1 onion bagel, or thick slices of bread, toasted
  • pickled onions, optional but trust me, they make this sandwich pop

Start by heating a skillet on medium heat. Add the bologna and get a nice sear on one side. Lower the heat a bit, and add the sliced shallots. Next, drizzle the sesame oil on and around the bologna. After you have achieved a nice sear, flip over, cooking the onions and cook for about 5 minutes on medium-low heat.

Add the slices of American cheese, cover and let the cheese melt. During this time, toast your bagel.

Once the cheese has melted, add the bologna onto the bagel, top with pickled red onions (if using), and dig in. Yes, I’m a bit guilty of having this as one of those defined ‘closet sandwiches’ where you devour the heck out of it when no one is looking.

I loved everything about this creation. The subtleness of the sesame oil, along with those shallots and pickled onions, whoa, stop me now. This was a real winner, so the next time you are at the deli, don’t forget to get a slab of bologna and give this one a shot. Enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
