They come in different forms but are they basically the same ingredients?

That is like comparing Grana Padano to american cheese.
Technically they are both cheese, but….

@ragingloli I have never had , or heard of, Grana Padano. Am I missing out?

Inhredients in Oscar Mayer Balogna:

Very similar ingredients.

janbb's avatar

Different flavorings.

JLeslie's avatar

Only if it’s a very bad hot dog.

Similar ingredients sure, but then a Big Mac and prime rib are similar ingredients as well.

@Darth_Algar Oddly I prefer Big Macs to prime rib. As long as the patty is hot.

After Darth’s answer, which is similar to mine, this Q has me wondering if bologna eaters like Ball Park and Oscar Meyer franks better than a well done Sabrett or Hebrew National hot dog? Different taste and consistency profile.

Also, are bologna eaters more likely to put ketchup on a hot dog?

I tell my son that meatloaf is basically a hamburger. He could live off hamburgers but won’t touch meatloaf. Comparisons can be a bitch.

When my kid asked me what bologna was, I said it was hotdog’s cousin.

Maybe I should have further clarified it as hotdog’s low brow, sliced cousin.

It’s the same. The differences are smaller than hot dogs of different manufacture.

Bologna no taste good, hot dog taste good, both bad bad for me. All I know.

janbb's avatar

@flo You nailed it!

flo's avatar

Thanks I don’t know, I just don’t get Bologna, it’s so different from the other cold cuts, which are soooo good but still all bad for humans.

raum's avatar

Oscar Meyer bologna is a pass.
But Boar’s Head bologna is pretty good.

Darth_Algar's avatar


Well bologna is, in my view, nasty shite, but to answer your question: Hebrew National beats ever other mainstream brand of hot dog, hands down.

janbb's avatar

@Darth_Algar I agree. They are good!

They are both made of meat scraps collected off the floor left over from making other cuts of meat. Link
