This is one of these hearty, one-pot type suppers that is so popular among the Amish. I can never get enough of these types of meals.
This recipe comes from an Amish woman in Pennsylvania and it’s just so classic.
Recipe tester Barbara tried this one for us. Barbara said: “This is a good hearty meal and you should be able to taste and adjust as you need!”
So for an easy, hearty one-dish meal give this Amish classic a shot!
