Sandwich Spread (Nostalgia)
We have a local meat shop that we like to visit. They make the best brats, all sorts of varieties. Our favorite is Hawaiian. They also make great sausage etc..
On my last visit, Mike came along and spotted some sandwich spread in the cooler. He was instantly reminded of his Grandmother and the sandwiches she use to make. We worked our way to the counter and purchased some Beef Bologna and a promise from me that I would make some.
My mom use to make this as well. It isn't one of my favorites but it is easy and who doesn't love making their husband smile?
2 pounds bologna
1 pint Dill Relish
1 1/2-2 cups Miracle Whip
Cut up bologna in chunks, put through a meat grinder.
I have a Kitchen Aid and own almost every attachment that you can buy for it. This includes a meat grinder, works great!
In a bowl, mix ground bologna, Dill Relish, and Miracle Whip (or Mayonnaise). I add just enough to hold the spread together. I did not use exact measurements. The above amount is approximate.
Chill, and serve!
I noticed that some recipes call for black olives, and boiled eggs.I stuck with the version my husband remembers.
The Dill Relish I used is home canned and has just the right kick, it was perfect for this spread.
