Hello, winter! We are definitely in the middle. Most people are out of town. Some are easily taken. Many do not cook at home. Very hot!

When I talk about cooking, I promise you some Amish recipes; They are thousands, and many different variations (plus different areas show different choices). I will focus on Ohio Halls, the county of the largest Amish in the United States, followed by Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Last names also seem to go well with certain areas. In the Holmes County, the last name “Miller” (Amish does not look like, but it certainly is!) Seems to be the top name. Other familiar names are Yoder, Master, Troyer, Raber, Shrock, Hochstater, Stuttman, Slach, Shelaba, and so on.

I share a recipe and the name of the person associated with it. Usually every meal book had a prayer at the beginning, and of course the Amish prayed before each meal. I found many recipes for U-Seti, and they were all the same, so I chose one from Noah Bichy:


  • 1 pound of meat, fried
  • 1 pack wide noodle (cooked)
  • 1 cup chicken soup cream
  • 1 cup tomato soup cream
  • 1 cup celery, finely chopped (cooked until tender)
  • 1 pound velvety cheese
  • Salt to taste

Occasionally stirring roast minced meat. Cook the noodles in hot water until tender, but not too soft.

Mix tomato soup with ground beef and chicken soup with noodles. Place in layers in a clay bowl. Cover with Velvet Cheese and bake in a slow oven for 1 hour (but one person wrote on the recipe that you can bake at 350 ½ instead)

Another favorite recipe is Vivian Miller, a Manawi mistress called “Savari Chicken Breast Casserole”. Her husband, Duane, says he is very popular.

  • 1 cup pre-filled containers
  • 3 TB. Butter, melted.

Place chicken breasts in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Top with cheese pieces. Combine soup and milk and pour over chicken. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the top. Pour the butter over the filling. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Bake and bake for another 20 minutes, or until golden brown and foamy. This clay pot is quick and easy to make and is a real favorite of the family.
