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. This casserole back is basically the food equivalent of a hug.
These perogies are 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. I had a hard time coming up with an idea for the post, but then I thought of Christmas.
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.
This pierogi casserole inspired dish is perfect once it’s turned into a one pot wonder.
To make the perogy bake I tossed used everything for the Ukranian breakfast (minus the eggs) and it was so much easier doing this in one dish than washing multiple 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. This is the smell that used to stick on my clothes every Monday morning just in time for me to go to school. As amazing as it smells in the kitchen, it’s not so nice on a 13-year-old girl in highschool. It brought a whole new reason to why I hated Mondays. Garfield had nothing on me.
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 I will learn how to make perogies, and when that day comes you know darn well I’ll share the recipe with you all. Well, I already know the recipe I just have to make it and it put together.
Randa’s tip: 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!
Perogie Casserole Bake
If there is one dish that will make me famous, this is it. I hope you all enjoy and you guys…it’s THAT good.
Pierogi casserole, perogy casserole, perogie casserole, however you spell it, it’s all the same! Enjoy friends.
Randa’s tip: I recommend a deep saute pan (like this one) to cook this in. That way you can truly have a one pot dish.
