This is just a silly kid recipe. My grandma used to make these for us. Of course, we gobbled them up! My kids liked them too. (So do I!)

How to Make Flying Saucers


  1. Prehat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place bologna slices on a cookie sheet.
  3. Top with a rounded scoop of mashed potatoes. I use an ice cream scoop.
  4. Cut cheese slices into about 1 inch squares and press into the sides of the mound of potatoes to look like windows.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or so until until heated through.
  6. You could use any other round lunch meat. My grandsons prefer deli salami or what they refer to as "greasy meat"!
