I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
South African Gatsby
...in your mind.

South African Gatsby

Makes one sandwich - It’s a bit odd, but good. Think hoagie, hero, sub - whatever but with the addition of fries and pretty much any kind of meat you’d like. In this version I use boloney because that’s how I first saw it in Capetown.


  • 4-5 slices of boloney
  • 1 sub, hoagie or hero roll
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 handful oven baked French fries, cooked, hot & crispy
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce


  1. Grill boloney a couple minutes a side in a medium hot pan until beginning to brown
  2. Slice roll lengthwise, leaving a hinge and add lettuce, cooked bologna, fries, ketchup and hot sauce - that’s it :)
