The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC) celebrated National Bologna Day, October 24, in partnership with the Beef Checkoff, showcasing bologna's classic deliciousness with innovative, new chef-developed recipes that show how trendy bologna can be. The recipes included:
- Bologna Burger Sliders : An update to the classic ground beef slider, adding in ground bologna and topped with pepperjack cheese and grilled onions for an extra flavor kick.
- Bologna-Slaki with Tzatziki: A Mediterranean twist with skewers of bologna, red onion and red pepper chunks, marinated in olive oil, oregano, lemon and garlic, then grilled and served with a cool yogurt, cucumber, mint and cumin sauce.
- Crunchy Grilled Bologna and Cheese Sandwich : These indulgent, crispy-gooey sandwiches, topped and grilled with crushed potato chips are terrific for lunch, naturally, but also work fabulously as an hors d'oeuvres when cut into quarters and dipped into honey-mustard.
- Grilled Bologna Salad Sandwich : Step away from the tuna melt and try this delicious bologna alternative chopped with provolone, Dijon mustard, hot relish and mayonnaise.
In addition, the NHDSC featured results from consumer polling showing that only 35 percent of Americans know that bologna is a type of sausage. Polling also found the classic bologna on white bread sandwich is most popular with consumer, as 70 percent of bologna eaters say slices on bread are one of their favorite ways to enjoy bologna . National Bologna Day was heavily promoted in social media, generating 20 million impressions over the course of the week.share on facebook share on twitter
