Cole Slaw Ingalls Cafe

Recipe from: Dub Egbert

The small cafe in Ingalls Kansas is indeed unique. Ingalls is a small town in western Kansas — population of 200. The cafe seats about 75; the place is very popular and draws people from surrounding towns. The owner bakes all the breads (sliced, dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, hamburger buns, etc.), makes homemade pies everyday, cuts his own beef, makes his own sausage, and the list goes on. The place is spic and span. They have a special every day, like, Wednesday is fried chicken day (three pieces of juicy fried chicken, mashed spuds with chicken gravy, corn, Cole slaw, dinner rolls, desert and drink for $5.50). Thursday the place is packed for Mexican Day. And on Saturday night it is standing-room-only for Prime Rib. The portions are "field-hand" size — a lot more than I can eat. This brings me to their Cole Slaw. There are those that were brought up on mayonnaise and those that were brought up on Miracle Whip. I'm a Miracle Whip guy. The Ingalls Cafe makes their Cole Slaw with Miracle Whip — what a great taste. I suspect those brought up on mayonnaise wont agree but, what the hay, give it a try. If you like Miracle Whip you will love this very simple Cole Slaw. Give it a try.

1 cabbage, shredded
1 carrot, shredded
1 ½ cups Miracle Whip
½ cup milk
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper

Mix the sauce and pour over the cabbage and carrot. Refrigerate and let marinate for several hours or over night.
