Frozen potato/cheese pierogies are a regular dinnertime dish at our house. Mr Plain is a big fan of them.  I have never made them from scratch, but, we have eaten them fresh from restaurants and our local farmers market.  He tells that mine are better.

Yes, the frozen ones from the package. To each his own, right?

Well, I prefer the fresh, but, until fresh are made in my kitchen, which may not be happening too soon, the frozen will have to do. 😉

What you need for this recipe and a few notes:

  • Frozen pierogies: Our pierogi flavor of choice is usually a cheddar/potato variety. But, any flavor will work..go with your favorite!
  • You don’t have to defrost the pierogi before adding them to the casserole. Taking them frozen, right from the bag is fine.
  • Bacon: You can cheat a little and use bacon bits instead of baking and then, crumbling the bacon. Saves you a step and a little time.
  • 8 x 8 baking dish
  • Cream cheese: Save a few calories and go with the 1/3 fat free version!
  • Chicken broth
  • Cheddar cheese.
  • Green onions: these are optional, but, do add a nice flavor to the casserole.

This casserole gives regular frozen {or fresh} pierogies a little extra pizazz! It’s pierogies, cheese, more cheese and bacon! And isn’t everything a little better with cheese and bacon?

Wondering if this meal freezes well, like if I made 3 portions and we ate one, could I freeze the two other portions for future meals?

I have come back to this recipe so many times! The kids love it and I love that we always have pierogies in the freezer and this just a no-brainer. I wanted to let you know that I toss the sauce ingredients into a cup, whiz them with the hand blender and chuck it in the oven. Turns out amazingly with even less prep! Thanks for the inspiration!

My husband is a bit of a picky eater so sometimes I have a hard time coming up with different meals. I have made this SEVERAL times and it turns out great everytime! My husband loves it and the meal is devoured!!

The last time I made this the cream cheese looked curdled, almost like cottage cheese, how can I prevent this from happening again?

Hi Melinda- I can't say for certain what happened, but, it sounds like be that your cheese wasn't fully melted. Perhaps, heat it a few minutes longer ( stirring frequently) and see if that helps. Hope it works out :)

This didn't turn out well at all. I followed the directions and it wasn't cooked through after 20 minutes. I ended up finishing it in the microwave because the rest of dinner was ready. It also needed more sauce because it was very dry. If I try this again I'll triple the sauce and double the cooking time because it did taste good.
