CLICK HERE TO READ MUTT & JEFF'S
HOT DOG SLAW RECIPE
That's Mutt & Jeff's Drive-in (as it was in 1959) on the left. And below is Mutt & Jeff's FAMOUS HOT DOG SLAW RECIPE!

After yrs of experimenting to get the slaw sauce right...here is what I came up with....at the 25th reunion of '59 DeWitt (he's either Mutt or Jeff) told me that all of the ingredients are there...but never would give me the recipe.

Sauce:
about 3 serving spoons of Hellmann's mayo
about 1-2 teaspoons sugar
about 1-3 T.n white vinegar
about 3-5T.BBQ sauce (not real sweet, I use K.C.Masterpiece Original)
about 5-8 T. water
salt/pepper to taste
Instructions:
mix all these ingredients until they have a sweetened slightly sharp taste and some ingredients may need to be added a bit more til you get it right...the color should be a pale pinkish clay color

Add sauce to:
1/2 medium cabbage chopped by hand into as small a pieces as you can get...(Don't uses a food processor b/c it makes the slaw too small and loses the balance between sauce and slaw)

You only need to marinate it about 10 minutes...the sauce should be a bit juicy but not overly watered down.

Serve over hot fried hotdogs...this is my husband' s former office's most requested dish for group parties...

Enjoy and drink  with a Vanilla or Cherry coke  :)
