Bologna Salad Spread

On the Menu Today~
Bologna Salad Spread

Even though Memorial Day Weekend is over and
summer is known as the "Grilling Season",
if never hurts to have a sandwich filling ready for lunch or
for those rainy days that always seems to accompany the week-ends,
when you have a house full of friends and family.

You can also serve Bologna Salad Spread on buttery crackers.
It's perfect served as an easy appetizer to munch on while your grillin' burgers.

My mom made this spread when I was growing up.
We called it pickled bologna.....
She made pickled bologna with one of those cast-iron meat grinders
that you attached to your counter top and
turned a big handle to grind the bologna.
My mom used dill pickles and
ground those also in the grinder.
She would add just enough miracle whip to moisten
all the ingredients together...

When I first started making 'pickled' bologna,
I made it like my mom did....
using that old meat grinder to grind the dill pickles and ring bologna.
(that old meat grinder is long gone, having misplaced it somewhere along the way.)
Now I use a few tablespoons of sweet pickle relish instead of the dill pickles and
I also add a few tablespoons of grated onion.

Bologna Sandwich Spread

  • 2 (14 oz) packages ring bologna, ground (use a good brand)
  • 1 to 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise with olive oil (or to taste)
  • 3/4 cup sweet pickle relish, well drained
  • 3 tablespoons grated onion
Cooking Directions
  1. In a bowl, mix the ground bologna, mayonnaise, relish, onion, salt and pepper.
  2. Refrigerate at least an hour before serving.

    *You can grind the ring bologna by using a box grater, food grinder or food processor.

  1. Now that's a recipe that triggers memories for me! We made ours with dill pickles & no onions and used for sandwiches on white bread. We had the same grinder (I still have it!) and I was in charge of turning the handle. For some unknown reason my parents called this "ground ham" lol

  2. That's so funny!
    I was in charge of turning the handle too.
    We ate this all the time:)
    My ex-hubby and I fought over the "meat grinder",
    he got the old one and I had to buy a new one!
    I still prefer the old one too.
    Thanks for stopping,

  3. I recall this from my long lost "Salad Days" back in the Pittsburgh area. When we made it we included pimento stuffed olives along with your ingredients.

    1. Hi Don,
      I will definitely have to try it your way..
      when I was younger, I didn't care for pimento stuffed olives,
      but as I got older and ordered cocktails with pimento stuffed olives,
      I learned to love them:)
      Thanks for stopping by,
