🥗 Trending Salads and Appetizers
Chunky Pennsylvania Dutch Potato Salad: Who said potato salad is just for summer picnics? It's just as nice of an addition to Christmas dinner! here is a bit more about this recipe:
I know everyone has their own special potato salad formulation but if you are open to experimenting, this is a great one to try! I've seen this recipe posted online, but it was first sent to me by an Amish woman from the Ronks, Pennsylvania area. This is a potato salad with a classic Pennsylvania Dutch culinary influence. The apple cider vinegar and yellow mustard are tell-tale signs.

Amish Breakfast Casserole: This is great for breakfast and for supper, brunch, lunch, whatever, it is so popular on Christmas! Here is a bit more about this recipe:
this Amish breakfast casserole is an easy dish to make. This is one of my favorite Amish recipes just because it is so traditional. The proportions and ingredient order somehow combine to create a delicious, comforting casserole. This easy stir and bake recipe comes to us from an Amish woman in the Berne, Indiana community. Amish breakfast casserole recipes are a dime a dozen in Amish settlements, they all are fairly similar. I mean, some add garlic powder or flour to the eggs, or sour cream or cream cheese to their recipes. Each family seems to have their own "secret family recipe" variations.

🍞 Amish Breads and Desserts
Grandma's Homemade Christmas Nut Bread: Ah, Christmas - at least for me - means nut bread....here is a bit more about this holiday favorite:
When I was growing up, a swirly nutty bread would show up on the table at family gatherings. Unfortunately, I generally ignored the bread in favor of colorful Christmas cookies and frosting-slathered brownies. It wasn't until the final year or so of my grandmother making this labor-intensive bread, and I was an adult, that I gave it a second look (or taste). And, wow, I immediately loved Grandma's Homemade Nut Bread and regretted not gorging on it every year as a child. About the time I really grew to love Grandma's Nut Bread, the annual making of the rolls became too difficult for her. Grandma lived until age 91 and probably made it until she was in her mid-80s. Grandma passed away in 2016 the day after Christmas.. My mother made the bread once 7 years ago and it hasn't reappeared since, it is a very labor-intensive bread.
