Pierogi Casserole

Pierogi Casserole - Tried & True

NOTE: Very high in calories, uses LOTS of butter/margarine. Excellent potluck recipe.

6 cups mashed potatoes
1 lb. Cheddar cheese, grated
2 sticks (1 cup) butter or margarine, melted
1 large onion, diced
1 lb. lasagna noodles, cooked

Saute onions in butter or margarine until wilted. Butter 13x9-inch dish. Place a layer of cooked lasagna noodles, then potatoes, then cheese, then 1/3 of the onion/butter mixture. Repeat layers ending with noodles. Pour remaining butter mixture on top. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Hey, this sounds neat. My husband and I like pierogi's, in fact, just had the frozen ones the other night. Clever and easy. I printed it to try sometime soon. Thanks.

My parents watch Jimmy Sturr on TV and he was always advertising Mrs T's Pierogies. I saw some at WallyWorld and decided to try them. Unfortunately, none of us liked them - we all thought they were extremely bland.
...and that's the way it is in northern Minnesota.

Otter, here's a quickie for your pierogies:
Slice up some garlic, roast it in a bit of olive oil till it's soft, and set aside.
To the same pan, add butter and your previously frozen and then boiled-till-they're-hot-all-the-way-throuth-pierogies.
Get 'em golden, then add the roasted garlic.
Once the flavors have melded, plate them with a generous handful of
*you guessed it* fontina. Gruyere or jarlsburg would also be yummy.
Top with minced chives.

Made pierogies alot and many different ways, can be stuffed with anything you like. My favorite is kraut and sausage or cornedbeef. Short version of periogies is use egg roll wrap and deep fry, they are really goood. Rhuban hot dish made alot like pierogie hot dish. Use Kraut and corned beef with the lasagana noodles.

OK, all your recipes sound interesting, but I must admit to being a purist on the perogy (or perohe) front. I don't stuff mine with anything except potato and cheese. This casserole of Ray's is interesting because it uses noodles. I hadn't really thought about it, but the dough for perohe is the same recipe I use when making pasta noodles. Go figure.

Our family always got together and made homemade pierogies,” “My aunts, sisters and I always made everything by scratch, and I thought, there has got to be a simpler way.”

So I made up a recipe with all the same ingredients, and assembled it in a lasagna.

I use lasagna noodles for the recipe, but also recommends kluski noodles.

“It’s even easier,”. “You just cook a package of kluski noodles and mix them with the sauerkraut mixture, then layer it as you would in the recipe.


1 pound bacon

2 large onions (2 cups)

2 -32 oz. jars of sauerkraut (Steinfeld's )if you can find it in your area your area

2 packages mashed potatoes (4 cups)

1 large package mild cheddar cheese, grated

1 box lasagna noodles

1 stick of butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut bacon into 1/2-inch pieces. Fry until crispy in skillet. Remove bacon from pan and add onions to bacon grease and cook until golden brown. Return bacon to onion mixture.

Rinse sauerkraut lightly and squeeze out most of the liquid (reserve 1/4 cup of this liquid). Add sauerkraut to bacon and onion mixture. Cover and cook on medium heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until mixture is golden brown and tender, stirring occasionally. Add the reserved liquid and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Heat mashed potatoes in microwave and season to taste. Cook lasagna noodles according to directions. Butter bottom of 9 by 13 inch baking dish. Place a layer of noodles in pan, add a layer of mashed potatoes, followed by a drizzle of about 3 tablespoons of butter. Add layer of sauerkraut mixture, then a layer of cheddar cheese. Repeat 3 times.

Bake for 45 minutes. Optional: Add slices of kielbasa in between layers.
