Hearty Breakfast Casserole: This recipe is always so popular this time of year. A bit more about it: Christmas morning - or any morning - is a wonderful time to enjoy a hearty Amish Breakfast Casserole. The smell of fresh eggs and home-sourced meat wafts into the air from a baking dish in a wood-burning oven. Few things greet the day in a comforting way in an Amish home than a hearty casserole like this. Click here for the recipe.

Holiday Ham Meatballs: Ham is often the star of the Christmas food show. How about ham meatballs? Here is more about it: Whether it is among the Amish, Mennonites, or non-Amish ham seems to make an appearance at the major holidays (except Thanksgiving). Easter seems to bring out whole hams served glazed and sliced whereas Christmas seems to bring out the variations from croquettes to casseroles to meatballs. And that is what I have for you today: a delicious recipe for ham meatballs from a Mennonite cook in Iowa. Click here for the recipe.
🎄Amish Christmas Desserts
Old-Fashioned Molasses Cake: This is a delicious cake - This old-fashioned molasses cake is a classic recipe from the Amish community of Berne, Indiana. It's classic because this is a recipe that I bet 99 percent of our readers could make right now at home because you already have the ingredient Click here for the recipe.
Christmas Raisin-Filled Cookies: Here is a bit more about this holiday classic: This cookie looks labor-intensive, but it's really not, you're essentially putting two circles of dough together, putting filling in the center of one of them, sealing it, and putting a hole in top. The raisin-filled filling is where this cookie really shines, even if you aren't a raisin fan (like me), these are still delicious. The walnut pieces add some nice crunch to the cookie. If you are not a walnut fan you could probably use slivered almonds. Maybe. I'm not sure peanuts would be good. You could leave the nuts out altogether (I might), but you'd lose the "crunch" you get. A hint of oats might give you some of that, oh wait a minute, here's an idea: Rice Krispies. Yes, if you don't want nuts, maybe add some Rice Krispies to the filling. Click here for the recipe.
Amish White Christmas Pie: This is amazing. Here is a bit more about it: This is a pie that has captured the imagination of many people and has been adopted by some Amish as a family favorite on Christmas Day. You know, food traditions among the Amish are very individualized. If I had all the time and money in the world I'd love to do a "Christmas Day" recipe survey....I'd go door to door in Amish communities and ask people what is on their menu. My guess is that I'd have to knock on 200 doors before I found someone fixing this, but when I did it would be magic in a crust. I don't think it is a very common pie among the Amish, but it is a favorite among some. Click here for the recipe.
