Fried Bologna Sliders Recipe

Fried Bologna Sliders
If you have never tried fried bologna now is a great time with this delicious slider recipe. These sliders are loaded with fried bologna, mustard, garlic aioli and fried onion strings! The fried onion strings are a little bit of work to prepare but really add a nice crunch to this recipe. The garlic aioli gets a lot of its flavor from ingredients such as garlic, mayonnaise and lemon juice. I like to cook the bologna on a griddle because I can prepare several slices at ounce. These sliders are great as an appetizer to prepare for game day.

Fried Bologna Sliders

Yield: 4 Servings


  • 12 Hawaiian rolls
  • butter
  • 12 slices bologna 
  • mustard

Garlic Aioli-

  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Fried onion strings-

  • 1 large onion
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ground black pepper (to taste)
  • 1 quart canola oil


  1. In a small bowl mix together mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.
  2. To prepare the onion strings—slice the onion very thin. Place into a baking dish and pour buttermilk over the onions. Let soak for at least an hour.
  3. In a pie dish or large bowl combine flour, salt, cayenne pepper and ground black pepper. Heat oil in medium saucepan to 375 degrees F. Take a handful of the onions and toss in the flour mixture. Shake off any excess flour. Place into the hot oil and fry for a few minutes until golden brown. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat until onions are gone.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Cut the Hawaiian rolls in half. Lightly spread butter onto the cut sides of each bun. Place into the griddle cut-side down and cook until lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the skillet.
  5. Add the bologna slices and fry for about 2-3 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Repeat until all of the bologna slices are fried.
  6. To assemble the sliders- Spread a thin layer of mustard onto the top of the bottom piece of each bun. Fold a slice of fried bologna over the mustard. Top with onion strings. Spread a thin layer of garlic aioli onto the bottom of the top half of each bun. Place onto the sandwiches, garlic aioli side down.
