🥄 Trending Amish Soup
Brown Flour Potato Soup: Here is a bit more about this winter classic: Old-fashioned brown flour potato soup is a very easy, scratch-made recipe. Recipes like this were once staples in Amish and Mennonite homes. This recipe comes to us from a Mennonite woman. And you don’t see recipes like this as much anymore. Certainly there’s still plenty of old-timers in Amish and Mennonite communities who fix recipes like this. And at it’s core, this is really just an old-fashioned potato soup. Still, the browned flour, and the scarcity of other ingredients in it, just point to it as an old-fashioned great depression dish. Click here for the recipe.
🥣 Trending Amish Suppers
Amish Dairy Casserole: This is a delicious, hearty supper, here is a bit more about it: This recipe is always showing up when I flip through Amish cookbooks. I guess the cream cheese and milk in the ingredients make it a "Dairy Casserole." “Amish Dairy Casserole” is a recipe that I’ve run into repeatedly in Amish communities. It’s a very simple, hearty casserole….The milk and the cream cheese are the “dairy”components,so I guess that is why the casserole is named so. But in terms of preparation and ingredients you can’t get any simpler. Click here for the recipe.

🍲Trending Amish Side Dishes
Barbecued Green Beans: This is a delicious, flavorful accompaniment to any supper. Here is more about it: Green beans are a go-to vegetable in Amish kitchens, and they find their way in the mini side dishes. They’re easy, full of flavor and fiber and vitamins and minerals. Bring beans also pair well with protein: bacon, for instance. And ham. Of course, there is nothing like fresh green beans from the garden or farmer's market during the summer.
