Food memories from childhood #3

Food I ate growing up.

This is another food I think I started eating as soon as I grew teeth I believe. Bologna was something that was normally available in our house and so was Lays potato chips. It was a common lunch or snack for me. I loved putting my chips on my bologna sandwich. I loved that crunch in each bite. People used to think it a bit odd that I would do this but I did not care it was a texture thing for me.

Now that I am older I do not eat bologna much anymore nor Lays chips. But once in a great while I have to go back and revisit this childhood food. Now instead of Lays chips I use Ruffles brand potato chips because they just have more crunch and better flavor. The other change is I use mayo instead of Miracle whip I just do not like the tang of it anymore.

So foodtribe do any of you eat chips on your bologna sandwiches or am the only one ? Let me know in the comments below.

  • Love a crisp sandwich, as we call them in UK. Plenty of butter, sometimes with a dash of tomato sauce.

  • I think the Australian equivalent of Bologna is Devon, or at least it's close to it in terms of price, at $3 / kg.

    It was a lunch at home type item.

    Salt and vinegar chips crammed into a hole torn in plain white bread rolls, with margarine was a common sight in our school tuckshop, in Brisbane Australia in the '70s.

    Sometimes you could order piping hot gravy, or savoury beef mince and gravy, in the bread rolls, to which crushed chips could be added.

    • That is interesting. Definitely far more complex

  • Crisps and salad cream sarnies all day long here. Our American friends probably don't know what salad cream is, the most similar thing I found over there is probably coleslaw sauce.

  • I actually put potato chips on most of my sandwiches. Growing up my dad would fix me a fried bologna sandwich. Mom never cared for them so more for us lol. But like you I never eat bologna anymore.

    • Nice I'm glad I wasn't the only one I never cared for fried bologna. It is nice to hear it was a childhood thing for you as well
