Fried Bologna Sandwich

I love Longmire on A&E. Currently, it’s in the middle of the third season; and last week the Wyoming sheriff and his deputy, Vic (played by Battlestar Galatica star, Katee Sackhoff), got mixed up with some twisted cult folks (led by the awesome, Peter Stormare). If you ask me, that Waco-like Wyoming compound serves a pretty boring fried bologna sandwich.

Longmire, Peter Stormare, A&E, tv,
If they wanna convince people not to leave their crazy compound by offering fried bologna sandwiches, then they need to step up their game.

Here’s one – I make – that might change people’s minds.

It’s thinly sliced fried bologna and sauteed onions piled high – like an Arby’s sandwich – inside a butter-toasted Trader Joe’s Brioche Roll… with Trader Joe’s Pub Cheese spread. This is a freakin’ good fried bologna sandwich.

It’s also super easy to shop for. Four of the five ingredients can be grabbed at Trader Joe’s. Those include the Pub Cheese, Brioche Rolls, onions and salted butter.

I make this by throwing some sliced onions and bologna into a large skillet with melted butter covering the bottom. Then I cook it until the bologna gets my desired level of brown-ness.

After that’s complete, I scoop up the fried bologna and sauteed onions, and place them on another plate.

Toasting Trader Joes Brioche Rolls
That way, I can toast the rolls in the same skillet.

Spreading Trader Joes Pub Cheese on Trader Joes Brioche Rolls
Once the rolls are golden brown, it’s time to spread Trader Joe’s Pub Cheese on ‘em. This is a gourmet spreadable cheese made with real cheddar and jalapenos.

Then I pile the fried bologna and sauteed onions high onto the rolls, and enjoy one seriously good fried bologna sandwich with some Trader Joe’s potato chips.

I hope you love this irresistible sandwich as much as I do!
