Tip: Bologna Snake

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.

Recipe: Hot And Spicy Bologna

Easy way to spice up plain ring bologna. More or less seasonings/spices can be used for individual flavor. This is my husband's favorite.


  • Full ring of plain bologna
  • 1 Tbsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup water


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.
