Junkyard Special

Noelle Myers


This sandwich has a lot of Nostalgia for my family, two of my favorite people loved fried bologna sandwiches. One of whom grew up in a junkyard, eating them all through her childhood. I created the sandwich to celebrate her memory, and it has turned out to be one of our favorites.
