The bologna sandwich or baloney sandwich is a sandwich common in the United States and Canada. It is traditionally made from pre-sliced bologna sausage between slices of white bread, along with various condiments, such as ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise. Many variations exist, including frying the meat first and adding various garnishes such as cheese slices, pickles and tomatoes.

The bologna sandwich tends to be high in saturated fat (more so if cheese is added) and is high in sodium.

The bologna sandwich, fried or unfried, has been elevated to a regional specialty in the Midwest and Appalachia. In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, it is called a "jumbo sammich". It is the sandwich served at lunch counters of small family run markets that surround the Great Smoky Mountains.[1] In East Tennessee, the sandwich is referred to in local slang as a "Lonsdale Ham" sandwich, after the less-affluent neighborhood of Lonsdale, in Knoxville, TN (named for John Lonsdale, the third Principal of King's College London).[2] They are sometimes sold at concession stands in stadiums, like those of the Cincinnati Reds.[3]
