Fried Mortadella Sandwich [moved from General Topics]

MGZ | May 1, 2012 04:57 AM

As a child, the only way I liked to eat bologna was when Mom browned it in the frying pan and made sandwiches from that - kinda like pork roll. A little Gulden's mustard on toasted white bread, it was basically a flat hot dog to my developing palate.

Recently, I thought it might be fun to make an adult version. Slightly thick slices of mortadella browned on both sides, placed on a crusty baguette with a coarse ground mustard and some lettuce. Wonderfully tasty indeed. I'm think next time a little cheese might be a welcome addition, perhaps some sharp provolone? A nice slice of a good, ripe tomato?

Anyone ever try something like this? Another good one is to do the same thing with salami, though in that case Swiss cheese is my preference and mayo is a fine condiment.
