What the heck is bologna cake?

  • s

I just watched a movie called "Sweet Home Alabama" - one of the characters in the film asked his wife to get him a slice of bologna cake out of the refrig.

What the heck is that?

Do tell....

  1. A Google search brought up an example. Doesn't sound very appetizing to me. I prefer smoked bologna.

    Just scroll down until you reach "Bologna Cake."


    1. Maybe it's like that stuff I think is called olive loaf. It looks like bologna with bits of olive pieces chopped up and pressed into it. Will never cross these lips!

        Bologna Cake

        1 1/2 lb. bologna
        2 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese

        Get 1 1/2 pounds bologna sliced 1/2-inch thick. Take 1 piece of bologna and cover with a layer of cream cheese, lay another piece of bologna on top of first piece. Then cover second piece with cream cheese, continue to do this until all 1 1/2 pounds are layered in the form of a cake. Then take remaining cream cheese and cover top and sides, just like you were icing a cake. Chill, slice and serve with crackers or chips.

      2. well speaking of sweet home alabama im in the middle of watching the dvd right now! when he said that my momma and me wondered the same thing and being southern that was one recipe that we hadn't heard of?? so curiosity of the better of me and i looked it up! its bologna and cream cheese you cut it an inch thick and layer it with cream cheese and then so take the remanding cream cheese and cover it like your frosting a cake. you serve it with chips or crackers. so there you go!

        1. Lived in Alabama, Tennessee or Georgia all my life...never heard of it. I have, however, eaten fried bologna.
