I too was fed fried baloney sandwiches by my Mother. She did the same little cuts ’round the edges. Where do Moms learn those things? 🙂
Shout out to North Carolinians: Do you remember, back in the 70s I guess, there was a restaurant in Charlotte that served ONLY fried baloney sandwiches? I never had the pleasure of eating there, but heard about it from a friend.
your momma figured it out cause if you did not cut the edges, it curled up and you could not make a decent sandwich out of it.
