Okay, let's see what recipes are showing the most traction this week on Amish365!
Egg Dutch: Ah, this one brings back lots of nostalgic memories for me. It's basically just an omelet, but it is an old Amish favorite. A little more about it: Egg Dutch is one of the first recipes that ever appeared in the Amish Cook column, put in there first by Elizabeth Coblentz, the original Amish Cook. This is really just a hearty omelet…the flour bulks it up a bit and the milk makes it nice and fluffy. It's definitely a great way to start your day! Click here for the recipe.
Amish Breakfast Cake: Here is how this recipe is described: t’s good. It’s not overly sweet and the crumbly topping helps to give it depth – especially after sprinkling the cinnamon on. It’s good with coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, too. Good stuff, click here for the recipe!
Summer Blueberry Crumble Muffins: So good using fresh blueberries!
Easy Summer Salad: Practically sings of summer. So good! Click here.
Mennonite Chicken and Dumplings: A classic. Bit more about it:
This recipe comes to me from a Mennonite women in the community of Dayton Virginia. Dayton is a Mennonite community that I’ve explored quite a bit it’s a beautiful settlement tucked away in the Shenandoah Valley. If you ever get a chance to explore that area I highly recommend it. Recipes there are very basic, tinged with a little bit of southern influence, and very old.
Recipes, like this Mennonite Chicken and Dumplings, have been passed down through the generations. Unlike other old-order Mennonite settlements, German is not the main language here. Most Mennonites speak English. They do use horse and buggies and generally frown upon most modern technologies.
Montana Cowgirl Casserole: This is a great, hearty supper. A bit more: The Amish who live in Montana really are known for their hearty pull-out-all-the-stops casseroles like this Montana Cowgirl Casserole. Hearty Montana Cowgirl Casserole is a favorite among the Amish in St. Ignatius and Rexford, two of the oldest Amish settlements in Big Sky Country. Click here for the recipe
