Ring bologna resembles an over-sized, horseshoe-shaped hot dog and, since it's fully cooked, it can be served either hot or cold. Unlike sandwich bologna, which is usually served as a cold-cut, it's often heated before serving. Although a 12-ounce ring bologna is sometimes sold as a single serving on a long roll, it's better to split one into four to six servings, especially if you're watching your sodium and fat intake.
Things You'll Need
Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a large cooking pot.
Add the whole ring sausage to the pot, and turn off the heat.
Cover the pot and let it sit for 15 minutes.
Remove the ring sausage from the water using tongs. Place it on a plate and slice for serving.
Serve heated ring bologna with or without a roll, along with mustard, sauerkraut and potato salad.
Ring bologna can also be cooked on the grill like hot dogs or bratwurst.
To serve ring bologna cold, slice it thin and use it to make sandwiches, or cut into cubes and serve as an appetizer with cheese.
Do not overcook ring bologna.
