The bologna sandwich
or baloney sandwich
is a common and inexpensive lunch choice in the United States
. It is traditionally made from pre-sliced bologna sausage
between slices of white bread, along with various condiments
such as mustard and mayonnaise. Many variations exist, including frying the meat first and adding various garnishes such as cheese slices, cucumbers and tomatoes.
A famous and best selling brand of pre-sliced bologna is Oscar Meyer. Its brand was made famous by the jingle that begins “My baloney has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R...”. According to the company, approximately 2.19 billion Oscar Meyer balogna sandwiches are eaten every year (6 million per day).
