Grandma's Eggs, Bologna, & Cheese Sandwiches!

Don't bash them until you've tried them. They are a scrumptious concoction of deliciousness. I dream about these sandwiches on a regular basis and can't help salivating at the mere thought of them.

My grandparents are snow birds, so I only see them a few months a year. This is mainly because we live in a location of the world that most people flee from when it starts to get cold. I question the sanity of everyone I encounter every December...I also say "What am I doing here???" everytime I leave the house. Needless to say, they come back home every June. If the mood suits my grandma, she will make her legendary Eggs, Bologna &  Cheese Sandwiches.  This is a special summer treat of the rariest nature. There are certain guidelines to follow for such occasions. For instance:

  1.  If Grandma asks if she should make her Eggs, Bologna, & Cheese Sandwiches, you respond with a direct, affirmative, "Yes.". Leave all okays, sures, & I guesses for everyday sandwiches.  
  2. Each sandwich should be given an individual's undivided attention as they are devoured & mindfully savoured. Conversations should be kept to a minimum...or flat out withheld until dessert.
  3. Leave no bit of bread untouched. If it's in the pantry, it would be better to slather a bit of eggs, balogna, & cheese on top of it. Its purpose will be served. You see, you want as many sandwiches as possible because I cannot begin to tell you about the sadness one feels when their cousin takes the last sandwich from the pan.  
  4. Eat all the sandwiches. Even the funny looking ones. Looks can be deceiving.

It's probably best that I conceal these images from the public. Over the years I've heard that some people find the ingredients repulsive. Maybe it has something to do with the accompanying smell. I don't know, but here's the recipe...sort of.

A couple hard boiled eggs.

Hot Dogs (Bologna) I know what you're want to run to your kitchen immediately and make this. Hold your horses. There's more.

Next you get a block of cheese. I don't know what kind. Chop it up somehow. I never pay attention to this part. I'm always too busy counting down the minutes until I get to scarf down as many sandwiches as possible like I'm in one of those competitive eating contests.

Add a generous amount of ketchup. A giant dollop, if I may. Oh, and mayo! Don't forget the mayo!

Oh, I forgot to tell you. Somehow you chop up the hot dogs and the eggs. I don't know how to do this, but I'm confident that you'll think of something.
Go ahead. Mix it up. ;)
Next lay as many hot dog buns you can find on cookie sheets.

Cover every surface of bread possible. Make it happen, Capt'n.

Place tray in oven on BROIL for just a few minutes. You definitely do not want this to burn. But if somehow the edges are burnt... (see Rule No. 4 above)



  1. Wow! I don't know if I could do it. You mentioned the smell...have you had increased sense of smell lately?

    Also, your grandma is so great! :-)

  2. You totally could do it! No, I don't think I have...there was an evening at a friends house where I thought I was starting to gain my sense of smell back, but it turned out to be a headache.

    Thanks for reading!

  3. I have been craving these since the day you posted this entry! They were super delicious when I tried them a while back. I KNOW my husband would love them since he loves everything hotdog. I will have to try these out myself!
