Each year on October 24, people across the nation make a sandwich to take part in National Bologna Day.  This would be a good day to have a bologna sandwich for lunch.

  • Sometimes spelled baloney (as it is pronounced), Bologna has been one of the more popular luncheon meats for decades.
  • Favorite bologna sandwich garnishes are mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, cheese, lettuce, pickles, tomato, and onion.
  • Bologna is derived from and is somewhat similar to the Italian mortadella (a finely hashed/ground port sausage) that originated in Bologna, Italy.
  • United States government regulations require American bologna to be finely ground and without visible pieces of lard.
  • Bologna can alternatively be made out of chicken, turkey, beef, pork, venison or soy protein.
  • Bologna Bowl – When a slice of bologna is heated, the fat renders and the round slice takes the shape of a bowl which may be filled with cheese or other fillings.

There is a variety of different types of bologna:
