Cheesy Pierogi Casserole

Cheesy Pierogi Casserole Recipe - Family Fresh Meals -

 

One of my favorite ways to make a new recipe is to take a simple, ready-made food and dress it up so it looks and tastes homemade. So, for instance, I turn plain frozen ravioli into Crockpot Ravioli Lasagna. Or SeaPak shrimp scampi and frozen tortellini into One Pot Garlic Shrimp Tortellini.

And now…it’s the pierogi’s turn.

This recipe starts out with your basic frozen potato and cheese pierogies. Now, these are pretty yummy all by themselves, or pan-fried with some onions and peppers. But in this dish, the pierogies are just the base for something truly amazing.

Because after laying out the pierogies in a casserole, you top them with a layer of sliced kielbasa sausage, which is also wonderful all by itself. So that’s two wonderful things in one pan.

But wait, there’s more! You top all this off with a rich, creamy sauce that blends together cream cheese, sour cream, Cheddar, garlic salt, and pepper. And after baking it for half an hour, you top it with even more shredded cheese, and let it melt on top.

With so much wonderfulness in one dish, how can you go wrong?

  1. Where does the chicken broth come into play?

    1. In step 3 Pam 🙂 “3. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over sausage and pierogies and pour in broth. Cover and bake for bake 30-35 minutes.”

    2. Thanks; this must have been corrected since my post because that step was not there previously. Looking forward to trying this recipe.

    3. Making this now and it smells amazing in the oven!

    4. Yay! I hope you love it!

  2. Sounds super yummy, so I’ll be making them soon. I’m SO glad that you didn’t call them “Pierogies”, since it’s a pet peeve of mine (being of Polish descent) when people call Pierogi “Pierogies”, ….since the word Pierogi is already plural.

      Good to know, though I, as a person of Scottish and German descent, but with no ties to either of the countries other than by ancestry, had no idea that the word pierogi is already plural, so have been using the (offensive to you) word with an ‘s’ added to it. I do apologize for my seeming insensitivity in the matter, but I believe you’re fighting a useless battle, as most people have no clue, nor will they care if corrected 🙂

    2. What a nice comment! Thank you 🙂

  3. 5 stars
    This reads like a truly delicious dish, but I’m going to change up the meat factor since I dislike pig meat in any form. I’m going to brown some ground buffalo, and then will also add sliced smoked sausage to it, not kielbasa. I like the idea of the pierogi being put together with good meats, and will enjoy this very much, I’m sure!

    I’m going to throw in some bacon. Stay tuned….

    1. Sounds like a yummy addition!
