Brown Sugar-Baked Bologna
- 1 (6 1/2-pound) all-beef bologna
- 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
- Sliced white bread, for serving
- Yellow mustard, for serving
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Line a large roasting pan with aluminum foil.
Place the bologna, cut side down, in the foil lined pan and spread a thin layer of mustard on the exposed areas. Using your hands, press half of the brown sugar onto the Dijon mustard to create a coating. Carefully turn the bologna over, so that the cut side is facing up, and spread the top and sides with the remaining Dijon mustard. Press the remaining brown sugar onto the mustard to coat the entire bologna well.
Place the bologna in the top third of the oven. Bake for 5 hours, rotating the bologna slightly during cooking to keep the bottom from burning.
Remove the bologna from the pan and place it on a large platter. Slice the bologna 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick and assemble sandwiches on fresh white bread with yellow mustard.
