    When I was young, you give me a pile of green onions, roll of Fisher's bologna, and a gallon of ice cold milk and I was a happy man.

    It's not something I would regularly buy at the store/butcher. But I don't mind a fried one with American cheese, lettuce and yellow mustard. Or with a fried egg, sans mustard/lettuce. The restaurant where I bartend does a thick-cut one that's pretty good. Not sure what brand they use, but I've always been of the opinion that it doesn't make a lot of difference brand-wise when you consider the main ingredients are chicken toes, pig snouts and cow lips.

    Only all beef bologna. The other stuff is too slimy for me. All beef, some cheese on white bread with Blue Plate mayo, usually cold, but I’ll eat it fried too. If it’s cold, give me some chips on it too with a little extra mayo.

    When I was little, my granny would get the kind with the red plastic you had to pull off, put it in the microwave with a slice of cheese on it. The heat would make it turn into a bowl with the melted cheese in it. Good memories!

    When I was a little girl my grandfather had a Jersey milk cow named Dearie. Dearie was my best friend. One weekend I went to my grandparents house and she wasn't there. My grandmother and aunt were slicing a roll of bologna when I asked about Dearie. They told me she had gotten old and didn't give milk, so they had her made into that bologna. I'm pretty sure that it wasn't THAT bologna. Nonetheless, I won't touch bologna to this day.

    I always liked Fishers, but I've never seen it outside of SEKY. They may not even exist anymore. If I have bologna, now, it's usually Gwaltney thick cut chicken bologna. That's the closest I've ever came to the taste of Fishers.

    I still love bologna. However, it does not like me, anymore. Especially with the onions and the milk. Therefore, I don't eat it often.

    Did you enjoy the next roast, steak, or hamburger at Grandma's after that?

    Used to partake when making sandwiches for the kids. Haven't had a bologna sandwich in probably 10 + years.

    I was a mustard guy!

    Fisher's is still up and running. They're based out of L'ville.

    OMG! I know it’s wrong and I’m so sorry that I just laughed at that but man, that’s just funny!

    I was told she was old and tough, so that's why she was made into bologna. So, I get what you're saying, but I was 6 years old and Dearie was one of my first "friendships".

    I know it is funny 45 years later...but I was 6. It was traumatic. And try as I may, that event is still something I can't overcome.

    A fried baloney and cheese from Herb and Thelmas in Covington is delicious. Stop by and have Joe fix one up for you.

    The ultimate lesson here, of course, is don't be friends with your soon-to-be-food. That means all farm animals. Including Wilbur, who provides very tasty bacon, ribs, loin, shoulder, intestines, feets, and many other delicacies.
