For Atlantic Canadians, particularly Newfoundlanders, boloney is a favourite comfort food. Affordable, convenient, filling, and intricately connected with Newfoundland’s past, bologna offers physical and emotional fulfillment to many Newfoundlanders who occasionally choose to ignore its high salt and fat content. This paper explores how simply fried, or more creatively transformed into dishes like Sweet and Sour Bologna, boloney brings together elements of tradition, modernity, and play in ways that speak of place and home.
