Super Amish Sunday Pot Roast: Pot roasts are popular among the Amish. The cut of meat used can vary, but big roasting pans full of meat and potatoes and carrots simmering on a Sunday afternoon is quite common in Amish kitchens. Unless you have access to your own freshly butchered steer the freshness will be tough to duplicate in your own kitchen, but you can still follow an Amish recipe and come up with something super. Most Amish cooks will use the freshest cuts of meat available.
Mrs. Miller's Parmesan Chicken: Here is a bit more about this tasty recipe: For some reason, when I think of "Parmesan chicken" I think of it as having tomato sauce with it, but this Amish Parmesan Chicken recipe doesn’t call for that. The Parmesan part of this recipe is just the cheese. Because Parmesan cheese (Well, is it really Parmesan?) so shelf-stable, you just buy it in those cylinder cans, it has become popular in Amish kitchens. You don’t even need to keep it in the refrigerator. So recipes that call for Parmesan cheese have gradually caught on in Amish communities.This particular recipe is popular and a favorite because of its simplicity, but it is also full of flavor.

Big Montana Beefy Casserole: This Big Montana Beefy Rice Casserole recipe originates from the Amish community in Rexford, Montana and was given to me when I visited about 10 years ago. Let's take a look at some photos of the recipe. Click here for the recipe.

Amish Grape Pie: Amish cooks that don't grow their own grapes will often mail-order some so they can press them into homemade juice, make them into jellies or even bake them into pies. Yes, grape pie is something that I've heard about in Amish kitchens ever since I began doing this 25 years ago. Grape pie occasionally shows up on the menus at weddings and I saw some being served at an Amish benefit supper not all that long ago. I was excited to see it, so I grabbed the last two slices.
