While I was in the US in February, we had Amish visitors at my parents’ home in North Carolina. One morning one of our guests took it upon herself to whip up a truly scrumptious breakfast casserole.

It took about 15 minutes to do, she said. Wow. At the 15-minute mark I am still trying to find a clean pot and determine which ingredients in my fridge are safe to consume.

Casseroles are mysterious things.  I don’t even know what was in there…eggs, cheese, some bread crumbs I think…no matter. I don’t know if anyone has joined the Amish because of the food, but a dish like that gives one pause.

Last year I asked about your favorite Amish restaurant and favorite Amish dessert. I thought I’d widen the question to just: what is your favorite Amish food?

“Amish food” I realize is a broad category–just because the Amish make it, doesn’t mean they came up with it.

But for the purposes of this post, we can say that if you ate it in an Amish home or it was made by Amish hands, it counts as “Amish food”.  So PA Dutch Pizza or Buggy Ride Burritos qualify as well.
