Welcome our guest Isabella Alan aka Amanda Flower

Amish Breakfast Casserole

In Murder, Served Simply, the third book in the Amish Quilt Shop Mystery Series, the story opens in the middle of a progressive dinner. A progressive dinner is an old Christmas tradition where each house serves a different course and the diners move from house to house for their meal. In my Amish novel, the Amish community of Rolling Brook is having a progressive dinner to bring more attention and business to the small town. One of the dishes found at the dinner is Amish Breakfast Casserole. It’s one of the most popular Amish dishes and is served at breakfast as a main dish or as side dish at dinner. Vegetarian readers can leave out the sausage, and it’s still delicious.

I’m pretty sure both Angie and her Frenchie Oliver would approve of this recipe. I hope you will too! Merry Christmas!

Anna Graber’s Amish Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients:

1 pound sausage
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
6 eggs, lightly beaten
4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
1-1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese

Steps:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Brown onions and sausage in a skillet until cooked through. 
 Combine other ingredients in a large bowl and add the onions and sausage. 




Pour mixture into a greased 13x9 baking dish. Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes. Let cool for five minutes and enjoy!

  12. Sounds delicious and fairly simple to make-perfect. Thanks for sharing. I've always been intrigued by a progressive dinner-but wonder about having things cooking while you're eating at someone else's.

    I never saw who won the ugly sweater contest. What a great way to raise funds. Lucky you being surrounded by books all day long at the library. Your books are so much fun. I don't know if you remember the Thanksgiving comment where you ask what a vegetarian meal or something like that would be and I commented my daughter is 18 and a vegetarian as well. I made her lentil soup for Thanksgiving. Her name is Isabella. What a coincidence.
