There is no shame in enjoying a fried bologna sandwich. Some foods trigger memories. Whether smelling a peach or trying sushi for the first time, food binds taste with experiences. Food memories, good, or bad, linger in our adult lives. I bet you can still remember the first time you tasted a gooey campfire s’more dripping with melted chocolate and marshmallow fluff. The feel of a rough graham cracker as it touched your fingers; the anticipation as you pressed the crackers together blending chocolate with puffy white goo. Your tongue traced the edge of the cracker. You wanted to savor each bite, but your best friend had just said, “Bet you can’t cram the whole thing in your mouth.”
So you did.
Billy Albertson loves baloney sandwiches. It does not matter how Oscar Mayer spells B-O-L-O-G-N-A, for Billy it’s “baloney.” In his day, fried baloney sandwiches were a delicacy. They still are today.
