What Is an Amish Casserole?
Amish casseroles hail from Pennsylvania Dutch country. Deep rooted in simple ingredients, this homey category of casserole has made its way onto many kitchen tables for breakfast, dinner, and the meals in between.

Ingredients You Need for Amish Casserole
The other terrific thing about this Amish Casserole recipe is that you can use it as a template and truly make it your own. Maybe you have the shredded variety of frozen potatoes like hash browns. That will work fine. Or, swap out the sausage for Italian sausage or even bacon. If your family doesn't enjoy cottage cheese, I think mozzarella cheese would taste fantastic here. You could even add whatever vegetables you need to use from the crisper drawer. The possibilities are endless!
However you choose to make yours, or whatever time of day you want to serve it, I promise this Amish Casserole will be a huge hit with your family.
