About bologna Edit
Bologna sausage is an American sausage derived from and somewhat similar to the Italian mortadella (a finely hashed/ground pork sausage containing cubes of lard that originated in the Italian city of Bologna). It is commonly called baloney/boloney or more formally, bologna. In the dialect of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania, it is commonly called jumbo. In Dickensian Britain they were called Polonies. US Government regulations require American bologna to be finely ground, and without visible pieces of lard. Bologna can alternatively be made out of chicken, turkey, beef, or pork.
