If I understand your question, you want a recipe for Perrogies that doesn't include forming the pockets, filling and closing them, then boiling and frying with Onions and Butter ? Right?
That might be called a Casserole.
Actually, there are a FEW fairly good frozen pierogi products.....Schwann's ( a wholesale distributator that does "home routes" ) is really pretty good. All you have to do is boil, then saute in butter with onions, or even deep fry.
We don't have to make EVERYTHING from "scratch" for it to be GOOD!
What I'm looking for sounds like what you are talking about. They are not the frozen kind, but something made as in a casserole, but done in a slow cooker. They are really excellent, no frying, and casserole-like. Do you have a recipe for them?
Thanks for posting. I don't want the frozen kind, but thank you for suggesting it. We get Schwann delivery here, but I am thinking about the kind that go into a slow cooker - I think with mushroom soup, sauerkraut, etc. I had some years ago and absolutely love them. I think David is on the right track that it is probably a casserole.
Rinse sauerkraut under cold running water and squeeze out thoroughly. Place in a large skillet over medium low heat with the onion and water to cover and let simmer for at least 1 hour, or until most of the water has cooked off.
In a separate skillet over medium heat, saute the mushrooms in 2 tablespoons of the butter for about 5 minutes. Add this to the sauerkraut mixture along with the remaining butter. Add the noodles as well and stir together thoroughly.
Place this into a casserole dish, cover and chill overnight to let the flavors fully combine.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake, uncovered, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
