Hollywood and Dine
David flew to L.A. to interview the stars of the new film, “Gangster Squad.” What did he talk about with Actor, Robert Patrick? Fried Bologna!
The recipe is so simple, we threw it aside so viewers can build their own version of a Fried Bologna Sandwich!
** Quick tip from David: Cut a few slits (like you’re cutting a pizza) into the edges of the round bologna slice to keep them from curling up too much in the pan.
