Amish Side Dishes
Take a ride on the wild side! Actually, Amish sides aren’t usually wild, but they are creative and inventive, basic and filling. Side dishes are those wonderful “add-ons” that round out a meal. Meatloaf isn’t complete without a fresh veggie dish on the side or some mashed potatoes. A chicken loaf has to have some peas to give it some balance. Sides are all about adding balance to a meal.
Amish tables are a paradises of sides. Amish after-church meals feature dozens of “sides” that complement the main course: bright yellow corn, fresh broccoli, beans of all sorts, along with crumbles, and delights, and mash-ups. Amish cooks know how to take center stage, but they are also stars on the side.
