Aggie’s Favorite

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

 

Meat Grinder

When I first started making ‘pickled’ bologna, I made it like my mom did….using an old meat grinder to grind the dill pickles and ring bologna. Many years later, when I got divorced from my then husband, my ex-hubby actually insisted on taking that old meat grinder with him. Well I said good riddance to him and the meat grinder. Years later I finally bought myself a new grinder about the same time I got a new husband! The newer grinders are so light weight and easy to use and can be very inexpensive too. Nothing beats the old cast iron meat grinders tho, in my humble opinion.
