Brookville Hotel Coleslaw

Get Social With Little Apple Life!

Fried chicken dinners at the Brookville Hotel always included the famous Brookville Hotel coleslaw. These family style meals were a tradition for many Kansas families and I can't wait for the next chapter with Munson Prime to begin!

If you grew up in Kansas then you probably great up eating chicken dinners from the Brookville Hotel. The Brookville Hotel had been serving up some of the best family-style fried chicken dinners since 1870 in Brookville, Kansas. For those not as familiar with Kansas geography, Brookville, Kansas is about 15 min from Salina, Kansas.

The history of the Brookville Hotel is onto its next chapter with the recent purchase by the Munson Family to reopen the Brookville Hotel adding their fabulous steaks to the menu in addition to the world-renowned fried chicken being served! I for one can't wait!

The fried chicken dinners at the Brookville Hotel are served family-style on Blue Willow serving dishes. The dinners of course include Fried Chicken, pickles, relishes, Pennsylvania Dutch Coleslaw, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Creamed Corn, and Biscuits with butter and jelly! These recipes are incredible and are tied to so many of my childhood memories, not to mention the Brookville Hotel is also a recipient of the James Beard American Classic Award. What surprises more people is their willingness to share their recipes.

A quick search if you don't have a personal copy and you can find their coleslaw, biscuit, and creamed corn recipe. Since they are a favorite of ours and a huge part of Kansas history, I decided to share them right here! We are kicking things off with the Brookville Hotel Coleslaw!
