Creamy Bacon Pierogi Casserole

A rich and creamy Bacon Pierogi Casserole dinner recipe.

I am a big fan of Costco (and no, they didn’t pay me to say that!).  I love all the natural light, I love the prices and that I can buy in bulk, and most of all, I love that they serve snacks (ahem… samples) while you shop.

I had never had pierogis when I noticed that my local Costco was carrying them.  If you’ve never heard of pierogis, they’re basically ravioli stuffed with mashed potatoes and cheese.  I kept waiting to get to try a sample, but I’ve never seen them sample this product.  I wanted to know if I would like them, but buying 4 pounds seemed like an investment if I ended up hating them.

And then…. the star of death occurred.  You know what I’m talking about, right?  The asterisk that Costco puts on its signs that means they aren’t ordering any more of this product.

I knew I wanted to try them, so I took the plunge and became the proud new owner of 4 pounds of frozen pierogis.

Last night I decided to make them for dinner.  As is my usual habit, I was perusing Pinterest at 4:30, trying to figure out what recipe I had all of the ingredients for, and happened upon this Bacon Pierogi Casserole recipe from Let’s Dish.

I whipped this up, adding a little extra broth to make my sauce saucy enough, popped it in the oven, and was treated by delight when I dished it up.  The kids told me I’m an amazing cook (they also loved the Garlic Butter Carrots that I paired this with).  Dan isn’t a ravioli fan, but even he said that this was a good recipe.

Yield: 4

Bacon Pierogi Casserole

Bacon Pierogi Casserole
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. frozen pierogis

  2. Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 pan, and spread out pierogis in it.  Set aside.

I really need to start meal planning again, and when I do, this Bacon Pierogi Casserole will be earning a spot in our regular meal rotation!

Realize I'm "late to the party" so to speak, but pierogi's are my ALL TIME FAVE of EVERYTHING!!! They make SO MANY types of food. Apps - simply baked/fried, served with sour cream & bacon pieces; mains such as your recipe or my ABSOLUTE #1 recipe that I stumbled on while in "desperation dinner" mode one night; Lora's Pierogi Surprise (cause I was surprised it turned out so DELISH!!! LOL) 1 pkg (usually use Mrs. T's brand) peirogis of choice 1 lb diced/cubed ham, 2 TBS butter (BEST if REAL butter, but "works" with margarine) 1 small onion, sliced thin (this is TOTALLY OPTIONAL, I've used onion powder - to preference- for flavor - with just as good results!!! Hubby is unable to digest onions, thus why I had to adjust.) 1 LARGE can ITALIAN Green Beans (the big fat BUT FLAT ones?)

Melt butter over med heat, added sliced onions and saute til onions are translucent. NOTE: at med, onions will burn quickly, so DO NOT step away for even a second during this step! Add ham, heat thru. Add FROZEN pierogi, stir. Reduce heat to med-low, cover and cook approx 10 mins, stiring at least once during this time. Peirogis should be getting tender, but are FINE if they are COMPLETELY so, then add MOSTLY DRAINED green beans (they don't have to be dry, but you don't want a huge amt of liquid.). GENTLY STIR beans into mix (you don't want to "mash" your pierogi); Recover and cook for another 5-10 mins, til beans are heated thru. Remove from heat and serve. YUM!!!! This is SO GOOD. In fact, just typing this had me CRAVING it!!! LOL

I haven't tried this recipe yet but will try it this weekend since I just made dozens of Pierogies over the holidays. I'm Polish. Pierogies are not "basically ravioli stuffed with mashed potatoes and cheese." Pierogies are more of a dumpling and they are stuffed with much more than potatoes and cheese. Although cheese and potato are a favorite of many they are also stuffed with cheese alone, kraut, mushrooms, meat, onions, sweet cheese and more.
