The bishop occupies a central role in the Amish church, from helping shape doctrine to taking care of mundane administrative tasks.
But being a bishop isn't all dull, there are fun parts of it. The bishop often has his favorite foods or meals and his wife loves to serve them and will often take them to potlucks or after-church gatherings. If the bishop loves a certain casserole or bread, it is often shared with the congregation. Here are five favorite Amish bishop recipes!
