8 slices bologna (casing removed if needed)
▢8 slices bread (or kaiser rolls)
▢4 large eggs
▢4 slices American cheese
▢each, salt & pepper (to taste)
▢2 tablespoon butter (optional, softened – for toasting the bread or buns)
▢1 teaspoon garlic salt (optional – for toasting the bread or buns)
(Optional) Toast the bread or buns if desired. You can toast bread slices in a toaster, but if using buns I prefer to toast them in a dry pan before cooking the bologna and eggs.
To do this in your frying pan or skillet, combine the optional butter and garlic salt and spread on each bun half. Then toast over medium heat until lightly golden. Remove and set aside.
8 slices bread, 2 tablespoon butter, 1 teaspoon garlic salt
In a large skillet or frying pan, heat to medium and add the bologna slices in a single layer (typically 3-4 slices at a time). Cook on the first side until golden and browning slightly, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook the reverse side for a minute, until golden as well. Remove and set aside (repeat if necessary).
8 slices bologna
Crack your eggs into the skillet or frying pan, still over medium heat. Break the yolk if desired, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the white is firm enough to flip or about 3 minutes.
4 large eggs, each, salt & pepper
Flip and cook the reverse side for one minute, add cheese slices and cover. Cook for an additional 30 seconds then remove from heat and assemble your fried egg and bologna sandwiches.
4 slices American cheese
Place the fried bologna on the bottom slice of bread or bun, top with the egg and melted cheese, then close with the second slice of bread or bun half. Serve immediately and enjoy.
