To add a touch of fun to the traditional bologna sandwich, I showed my boys how to make bologna snakes. A table knife is sharp enough for the task, yet safe for kids to use.
Lay the slice of bologna on a cutting board. Starting in the center of the slice, cut a rounded "head," then continue cutting in concentric circles until you get to the edge.
Carefully pick up the "snake" and watch it uncoil. My boys liked for me to fry theirs after they had cut them. These "snakes" are good on a sandwich, but are even more fun to eat by holding them above your head and eating the "uncoiled snake."
*This food trick is for having fun and forgetting table manners for a little while.

This is such a cute way to get kids to eat. The idea of making food fun to eat is brilliant! Thanks for the post!
Your distaste for bologna sandwiches might greatly improve if you salt and pepper the bologna!
My Grandma used to mince up her bologna & mix with 1000 Island Dressing to make a meat spread. Add a tad of garlic powder, some pepper. Serve on crackers for an appetizer or make sandwiches.
Cut the bologna into small strips. Cut the cucumbers, onions, apples, tomatoes and carrots also into strips and mix with bologna. Cut the eggs into eights (save some for garnish). Chop remaining egg whites into the salad.
Push remaining yolks through a sieve and mix with mayonnaise, cream, salt, pepper and paprika. Season to taste with mustard and horseradish. Stir dressing into salad with finely chopped chives. Garnish with eggs and parsley. Chill.

Cut bologna in 2 inch pieces. Place in a large glass jar/container with tight fitting lid. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl. Pour over top of bologna. Shake/mix well. Refrigerate for at least two days.
Depending on the size of the bologna ring, more of the ingredients may have to be added. Spices can be adjusted to taste. Serve with mustard of choice and crackers.
