While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Our food holiday has a first name... October 24 is National Bologna Day!
Any way you slice it, the sausage similar to the mortadella from - you guessed it - Bologna, Italy, is a childhood staple.
Children across the globe grew up eating bologna sandwiches: In North America, cheese is usually added to a slice of the sausage and sandwiched between two pieces of white bread. In Commonwealth countries, the sandwich looks the same, but instead of bologna, it’s called polony.
These days, the bologna sandwich has gotten a bit of a facelift. Chefs across the country have added this childhood comfort food to their menus, especially their late night and bar menus.
