What could be more basic and simple than making a bologna sandwich?  Just get some white bread, swab it with sandwich spread, throw some bologna on it, along with a slice of American cheese, and, wallah!  But wait!  The process is simple, but the sandwich is not.  Contained in that sandwich are a whopping 62 ingredients and 34 of them are industrially made.  In this episode, I examine the making of a bologna sandwich, reveal the vast array of its ingredients, delve into a bit of food history, and warn about some health concerns.
