If you love Pierogi’s you have to try this. Pierogi’s are yummy, but so time consuming to make. Pierogi casserole is way easier to make and tastes just as yummy. We had this for dinner tonight along with steaks. It was awesome. So, when I cook, measuring is not something I always do.
So, in order to make Pierogi casserole, you will need the following ingredients:
9 lasagna noodles, cooked
4 cups of mashed potatoes – I have to admit, I use instant. I have made it with “Real” ones, but, the instant ones (I use Instant Idaho reds) are already pre seasoned and taste way better in this casserole.
3 medium onions, chopped coarsely
1 stick of butter
8 ozs, Shredded cheddar, or more depending on what you like.
1.) Cook Onions with stick of butter
2.) Make mashed potatoes following package directions. I added some chopped garlic to the water for a little added flavor.
3.) Once onions are cooked and potatoes are ready, Mix them together.
4.) Spray your pan with Cooking spray, mostly so tit is easier to clean. Spread s small amount of mashed potatoes on the bottom of you pan (9×13 works perfectly, but an eight in square works great but you will need to trim your lasagna noodle).
5.) Then begin layering noodles, potatoes and cheese. Make sure to finish up with cheese on top.
6.) Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until bubbly. Enjoy.
Be creative, add bacon or whatever you like. There are no rules when cooking in my kitchen.
