Sandwich Spread

Recipe by  

"This is a recipe that we used in Pennsylvania for kids birthday parties. I remember my parents grinding the bologna in a old fashion meat grinder. They spread it on white bread and cut the sandwiches into triangles. Of course, we also had cake and ice cream."

Wow does this ever bring back memories! My Grandma used to make this for every birthday party. She had an old fashioned meat grinder she used to use - thank God for food processors! She'd add a little dill pickle juice and maybe some chopped celery to add a little "crunch" but other than that this is a pretty simple and straightforward recipe. It's great on little potato rolls or white bread with the crusts removed and cut into little triangles. Kids go nuts for these and a little goes a long way.

This was very popular in WWII. YOu had to extend your food as much as possible, and one thing more easily available were weiners and bologna chubs. By grinding it with fillers, you could get more sandwiches than serving one weiner per person. These were called Victory Spreads. Helping to bring our boys home with our Victory Recipes!

I must agree with Uncle Foxy. Mom made this for 10 years, calling it "Ham Salad". After grinding the bologna, process a quarter of onion and 2 strips of celery through grinder. This makes a good salad.

What an awesome recipe to find on here! I remember making this with my Great Grandma when I was younger. She would get out the heavy hand cranked meat grinder, and let me put the ingredients through. Sometimes we would add hard boiled eggs, onions, or cheese as well. Always finished by running a few saltines through the grinder. We always called it "Monkey Meat". Not sure where the name came from...but that's what it is to me! lol

I grew up eating this, too, only Grandma used bologna from Canada. Nothing against American bologna but Canadian bologna is just way better. Grandma also added half an onion and a little mustard. If you're looking for something to compare it to, it's kind of like deviled ham spread only with bologna. It's really like nothing you've ever had before.

This was a blast from the past. I found this recipe completely by accident. Growing up in Pennsylvania, this was a lunchbox staple. I don't know how often I'll make it because my picky kids think it's weird, but I really enjoyed it! Thanks for bringing back a wonderful childhood memory!

I grew up eating this and calling it ham salad. I was very surprised to learn later in life that ham salad could be made with HAM!!!

Fine dining indeed. I remember Mom making this for us kids back in the 60s and we'd have friends over during the summer for lunch and she'd give us a big bowl of it with a loaf of bread and Kool Aid and send us all out to the patio and we were in Kid Heaven. Thanks for the good memory and hence that's why I gave it 5 "stars".!
