KEY INGREDIENTS
Deli Fresh Smoked Turkey, Bacon, American Cheese, Tomato
Deli Fresh Smoked Turkey, Bacon, Sundried Tomato and Basil Cream Cheese Spread, Tomato, Italian Dressing

On a lunch date, at your kitchen table, with a companion who will be suitably impressed by your sandwich stylings.

Keep it real (Italian) by using Ciabatta rolls.

Somewhere around the Great Lakes
Somewhere south of the Mason-Dixon

Bologna, CLAUSSEN Sweet Pickle Relish, Lettuce, Tomato, KRAFT Singles, Green Pepper
KRAFT Singles, Bologna, Tomato, BBQ Sauce

The humble bologna sandwich is like a minimalist 1950s chair or a 3-chord punk single. It can be art if made well. The right mix of mayo, mustard and relish on toasted white bread sets the tone for a killer chorus of bologna, cheese and veggies.
Some adventurous soul took the classic grilled cheese and added a few favorites: bologna and BBQ Sauce. We nod in appreciation as we sample this bounty.

On campouts with eagle scouts.
