“Growing up around Amish farmland, I enjoyed the opportunity to witness firsthand their love of family, of the domestic arts – sewing, quilting, cooking, baking – as well as seeing them live out their tradition of faith in such a unique way.” – Beverly Lewis

You know when you’re digging into a real Amish meal, most of the ingredients to the recipe are local and that flavor shines through.

Well-loved recipes are passed down from each generation to the next.  You don’t have to have a barn-raising to enjoy the delicious meals from life on the farm.

Instead of looking for Amish dishes on Pinterest individually, I’ve put together some different types of dishes to drool over.

Traditional Amish Casserole Recipes:

Casseroles are a staple in Amish meals.  They are usually hearty, and feature ingredients like creamy noodles, and cheesy meat and potato combinations.

Amish home cooking recipes are legendary.  Finding the best one to start with is a difficult choice.

Traditional Amish Breakfast Recipes:

Lunch and dinner aren’t the only meals that feature casseroles. Breakfast casseroles are also a big deal in Amish country.

Filling recipes like baked oatmeal, waffles, and corn cakes are just some of the items you will find coming out of an Amish kitchen to give you substance for the day ahead.

Traditional Amish Desserts Recipes:

Homemade sheet cakes, sugar pies and whoopie pies are just some of the fun endings to a beautiful meal in the world of the Amish dinner.
