We are into November and comfort food is still ruling the roost, but we'll see more and more Thanksgiving recipes begin to collect the clicks in the weeks ahead. For now, let's see which recipes are getting the reader love this week!
🥗 Trending Amish Salads
Amish Broccoli Salad: This recipe certainly is trending with Thanksgiving coming up. This salad is always a favorite on Thanksgiving tables. Here's more about it: This broccoli salad is one of my favorite salads because it just melds these wonderful sweet and savory flavors together. And, FYI, the salad does fine a day or two later. In fact, I think after having 24 hours for flavors to meld, this broccoli salad tastes better the next day than it does the day of (but either day tastes great!) Click here for Amish broccoli salad.
🍞 Trending Amish Breads
Amish Cinnamon Raisin Bread: This is a super recipe. Here is more about it: I am not a huge raisin bread fan but if you cover anything in enough icing it eventually becomes good. And this Amish Cinnamon Raisin Bread is no exception. Of course if you like raisins then this bread has a double dose of delight for you: raisins and icing. This is a loaf of delicious icing smothered raisin bread that I picked up at an Amish bakery Indiana. This Indiana Amish settlement has its roots in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, which is also where this recipe originates. Doesn't this bread look amazing? Click here for the recipe.

Classic Amish Oven-Baked Chicken: The bishop's special recipe! Try it here.
Amish Cheat Chicken Casserole: This cheat chicken casserole is a reader favorite. Check it out here!
Double Ham & Cheese Casserole: Here is more about this delight: This double cheese and ham bake is a wonderfully hearty recipe that is typical of what you'd find in an Amish farmhouse kitchen. Ham is a year-round meat staple on most Amish farms. And, it’s like that I think in many non-Amish homes, although some faiths don't do much pork. I mean, I tend to focus on ham recipes the most right before Easter and around Christmas, but those are those big HoneyBaked or Virginia hams that are “special occasion hams" I think the ham as processed lunch meat or ham steaks are enjoyed year-round. And this recipe is one of those that just makes a wonderful comfort food meal any time of year. I mean, where can you go wrong with ham and macaroni? Click here for the recipe.
🎂 Trending Amish Desserts
Old-Fashioned Raisin-Filled Cookies: This cookie is popular around the holidays so I am not surprised to see it start to trending this week. Here's a bit more about it: This cookie looks labor-intensive, but it's really not, you're essentially putting two circles of dough together, putting filling, a tablespoon of raisin 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 arent' 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. Click here for the recipe.
Chocolate-Crinkle Cookies: Another delicious holiday-type cookie! Click here for the recipe.
Vanilla Crumb Pie: Oh, man, this is one of my favorite Amish pies, and just in time for Thanksgiving! Try the recipe here.
