Jellied Bologna Ring - Yes Bologna in Gelatin
I’m posting this because I believe this is the worst recipe that
I have ever seen posted in a newspaper. Please don’t make this.
I’m posting this for entertainment purposes only. Well, If you do
make it, don’t blame me.
1 pound small ring bologna, cut in 1/8 to 1/4 inch slices
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1 3/4 cups tomato juice
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely grated cabbage
1/4 cup diced celery
1/2 cup grated carrot
2 tablespoons chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons chopped pimiento, drained
Lettuce or curly endive
Soften gelatin in cold water.
Heat 1 cup tomato juice. Dissolve gelatin
in hot tomato juice. Combine tomato juice
mixture with remaining 3/4 cup tomato juice,
vinegar and salt.
Pour a thin layer of gelatin mixture into an
oiled 1 1/4 quart ring mold. Chill until firm.
Arrange slices of bologna on gelatin, overlapping
slightly. Chill the remaining gelatin until it begins
to thicken and stir in onion, cabbage, celery, carrot,
green pepper and pimiento. Pour over bologna slices.
Chill until firm.
Unmold on lettuce or curly endive. Arrange remaining
slices of bologna around ring.
Serve with mayonnaise. Eight servings.
