One Pot Perogie Casserole Bake

Fun fact: I’m 1/4 Ukranian and so pierogies (or perogies, however, you spell them) are in my blood. This One Pot Perogie Casserole Bake tastes (and smells) amazing. They’re basically the food equivalent to a hug.

This is the ultimate comfort food, but please keep in mind that this is not the meal you eat the day before you put on your skinny jeans. So ladies, put those bad boys away (the jeans, not the dish – because this is the ultimate cheat meal).

For the Holiday Entertaining Guide, we decided to do an easy, one pot meal idea because we know that the holidays can get hectic and it’s nice to have an easy (and comforting) meal to fall back on.

When it comes to comfort, I think of Christmas morning and the Ukrainian Christmas Breakfast my family and I have traditionally shared since I was a baby. Now this is how I’ll prepare everything for that breakfast (minus the eggs) because it was so much easier than watching a few pans.

Cream. Butter. Bacon. Cheese. Sausage. Perogies. 

Seriously, is there anything better than that?

When the onions, bacon, and garlic sausage hit the melted butter in the hot skillet – your home smells so darn good. This is the smell I grew up with.

I used frozen perogies, but if you have homemade – more power to you! Fun fact: my mom makes and sells perogies in my home town and I have never even made an attempt to make them yet. One day, and when that day comes you know darn well I’ll share the recipe with you all.

During this part of the recipe (when the perogies are added), it’s not uncommon for the perogies to stick to the bottom of the pan a bit. If that happens, just add some more butter. It’s okay, you can have a salad tomorrow.

I didn’t measure the amount of shredded marble cheese I used, but I’m guessing at least two cups. I tried for one, but I could tell it just wasn’t enough. You’re welcome!

  1. my this does sound very delicious, pinned it to try later

  2. I made this tonight and it was great!  Thank you.  Added a little green pepper and garlic not sure but otherwise followed the recipe.  A great fall comfort dish.

  3. I’ve only sampled the product before throwing it in the oven to cook,, but I can already tell it’s going to be amazing! Thanks for the recipe!!!

  4. It was to die for. My husband is going to be impressed. Thanks fir making it so easy to follow

  5. This casserole looks delicious, I want to prepare tonight for my family. Good Job!!. Thanks for sharing the recipoes

  6. Made this tonight and tweeked a few things.  Added chopped garlic and bumped up the bacon, sausage and shredded cheese.  This thing is AMAZING!!!  Salad for tomorrow for sure!!!

    • I’ll probably add a little more bacon too 😉 Making this for Christmas Breakfast, along with my tradition eggs poached in cream. So glad you liked it 🙂

      I’ll be eating salad for weeks after all this.

  7. Love this recipe! Usually they are just served with a mushroom soup with dill sauce at Baba’s so this seems fancy 🙂 That 100% pure Ukrainian, my husbands side of our family is coming for New Years and this would be perfect. Not sure if Baba will be ok with cheese on her’s so we will see

    • I’ve had it with Dill Sauce before, it was good but I’m used to using simply cream. You can totally leave out the cheese 😉 I just did that to make my husband happy, but we left it out on Christmas morning.

  8. Do you know the calorie count for this recipe

  9. This was way too greasy for my taste. If I tried this recipe again I would cook the bacon and onion first and put it aside. Cook my sausage then put it aside. Discard all but a tablespoon or so of the fat. Add the perogies and the sausage. Add the bacon and onion about the same time as the cream. Add the cheese and bake. It’s possible the bacon and sausage I used are not as lean as what you are using. 

    • The sausage I use leaves no leftover grease (it’s garlic sausage, not breakfast sausage – maybe that is what happened?).

      Make it your way next time and let me know if that worked for you 🙂
