This is a popular South Australian sandwich that is a kids’ favorite and couldn’t be any easier to make. It derives from their German heritage, with large bungs of fritz often found in butcher shops with free slices given to children shopping with their parents.
In other Australian states, the meat is known as ‘devon,’ ‘polony,’ and sometimes simply as luncheon meat. Overseas it is known as ‘baloney’ or ‘bologna’. It is essentially a very large sausage made out of emulsified meat, the same technique used to make hot dog sausages.
The meat can also be purchased pre-sliced in sealed packages, making it perfect to take outdoors whether hiking, on a picnic, or on a camping trip. It is very simple to make but makes a simple tasty lunch.
