I found it! With all the talk about the bologna sandwich spread, I searched out the one Mom and Grandma used to make all the time! It was hidden in the middle of a bunch of recipes Mom gave me years ago! They used good old fashioned home made bologna from my uncle’s butcher shop. I couldn’t begin to tell you how he made it, but it was good! I do remember black pepper, though, in the bologna. This recipe is older than me and I was born in 1945!
