Wow, does that bring back memories.

My grandfather died when I was six so I don't have many memories of him. But, one thing that I do remember was him making ring bologna and butter, on homemade white bread sandwiches. They were so good.

Sounds great except for the white bread! LOL My mom always made it with macaroni and cheese. I made it with scrambled eggs. Yes, for dinner!

I just fried it. Just seems kinda boring.

The first round, we always boiled it and then sliced it at an angle on a big platter in the middle of the table. But then....for leftovers, we always fried it until the edges are crispy. Mmmm what a great sandwich it made. Ring Bologna was a big thing when I was a kid! We still have it, but it's been awhile.

It sounds like you did just the right thing.

I remember those days as a kid from the midwest. You can't even find it in the northwest.

I used to love Pickled Ring Bologna also.

We just put a bit of water in and then kept an eye on it and when it dried up and browned a bit put more water on, maybe turned over. We cooked it with the lid on most of the time. It dosn`t rally matter at all how you do it. Just think of it as a big hot dog. Yup just loved those. I might check um out but I think I did and they had too many carbs but then if your past induction you probably don`t mind.

we never cook it just sliced it and at it with cheese. But I imagine you could fry it like kiabasa. Be sure to check the label I also was going to get some but put it back because of the carb count. I can't find it in NC (blessing in disguise) but I always by it for hubby when we are in PA

Oh I love ring balogna. You have to get it from a local butcher to really appreciate it. Never in my over 50 yrs heard of anyone cooking it though. That is totaly new to me. Always cut it up with cheese. Sometimes dip in mustard. WOW, I can taste it now.

My mom gets us turkey kielbasa (reminds me of the ring bologna we ate as kids). I used to take and cut it up into slices, fry with butter & lawry's seasoned salt I would then add potatos, corn and cheese and make a "hot dish" of sorts (I come from Minnesota...I swear most meals I ate as a child were hot dishes or casseroles LOL I know that there are folks around here that can relate to this. My husband jokes about Minnesotans and their hot dishes, I don't find it one bit funny (ok well maybe a little bit )). My cooking has had to change a bit without being able to use rice, potatos or pasta to dump in with some kind meat and sauce LOL. Having used the Dreamfield's and it not causing me any problems I am looking forward to making some kind of pasta hot dish soon!

Here in PA Dutch country, we just slice it and eat it as is...or serve it w/ a variety of cheeses. When I was growing up my mother liked to take a Ritz cracker, top it w/ a thin slice of ring bologna, then a thin slice of longhorn cheese and top it all off w/ a little bit of ketchup. Certainly not a lowcarb snack, but it sure does bring back memories.

Wow I had no idea I'd get so many responses to this! I've sure been cooking boring!

Thanks for all the ideas.

This is really EZ to do if you like fried ring bolonga. Score one the side of the ring with a knife around the out edge 1/4". Cut bolonga about into about 3/8" wide pc.s. Put cut pc.s in frying pan and add just enough water to just cover meat. On med. heat cook until water simmers away. Then keep cooking on med. until meat start to turn brown but not quite black. But on to paper towel pat dry and serve. You'll love it. ebonyeyz28 was missing the right way to fried it. Trust me, George

LOL - No, it's not raw. It's lunch meat and I love it on an oopsie with hot mustard. Personally I don't think I'd like it much cooked.

Ok...still now sure what ring bologna is but IF it's the same thing that Oscar Myer sells then we eat it fried until crisp and then stick it in a buttered biscuit...yumm! Even some of the local fast food joints sell bologna biscuits here in the deep south!!

I never heard of boiling it though. But maybe what y'all are talking about is a diff thing from what I am used to seeing??

It can be good even with the white bread, if you use one of Kevin's recipes.
