One Pot Perogie Casserole Bake (with Video)

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).

It’s time for some comfort food!

One pot perogie casserole bake - these creamy baked pierogies are AMAZING and a super easy dinner recipe! Perogies, cream, butter, garlic sausage, bacon, onions and cheese.

For the Holiday Entertaining Guide, we decided to do an easy, one pot meal idea for this week’s theme.

We know that the holidays can get hectic and it’s nice to have an easy (and comforting) meal to fall back on.

I have to admit, I had a hard time coming up with an idea for the post, but then I thought of Christmas.

Pierogi Casserole Recipe

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.

I was inspired but didn’t want to use almost every element on my stove to cook a simple dinner.

So I decided to turn it into a perogie skillet bake. (It was one of my best genius kitchen ideas.)

One Pot Recipe

This pierogi casserole inspired dish is perfect, especially, once it’s turned into a one pot wonder.

Why are one pot recipes (or one skillet recipes) so popular? 

You only have one pot/pan to wash when you’re done. It saves times, effort, and room (on your stove top that is).

Breakfast for Dinner (Sort Of)

To make the perogy bake I tossed used everything for the Ukranian breakfast (minus the eggs).

It was so much easier this way because I didn’t have to eyeball 3-4 different pots and pans at once and (as I said before) there was only one main dish to wash after.

Easy Perogies Recipe

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 will smell so damn 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.

Let me tell you, 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.

Frozen or Fresh Perogies?

I used frozen perogies, but if you have homemade – more power to you!

Fun fact: my mom makes and sells perogies in my hometown 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.

TBK’s Pro 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.

Cheesy Perogies Casserole

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!

    This was delicious! I added about 1 tsp of seasoning salt with the cream and it gave the sauce some extra dimension. It was great, but what sooo good that I just soaked it up with the potatoes in the pierogis!

  2. Can you cook it in a slow cooker?

  3. 5 stars
    made this and it was so good. Thank you for sharing. I love how different it is than what I will normally make. i am trying to get out of the dull-drums of the same old meals. This was a nice change in menu! Thank you:)

  4. I’ve not made this yet but it looks delicious! I wanted to comment how much I love the way you make your funny little comments as you describe how to make this dish, I was cracking up! Thank you for a great recipe, can’t wait to try it!

    • Haha! Thanks Rhonda ๐Ÿ™‚ I have to let my sarcastic and hilarious self come through ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Cooking isn’t really a serious thing, is it? lol

  5. Could you use regular milk instead of whole cream? Is whole cream even needed? Can I avoid that part entirely?

    • It would have a different taste and texture, I haven’t tried that so I can’t recommend. But go ahead and give it a try! If you really don’t want to use heavy cream, try half and half.

  6. Great job gentrifying PIEROGI*!

  7. Is garlic sausage ring the same as kielbasa?

  8. 5 stars
    I made this tonight and it was so good!! I used a little less of some of the ingredients, bacon (only had 3 pieces), butter, cream, and it turned out wonderful, and maybe a little less greasy. A bit of sour cream on the side completed it.

  9. 5 stars
    This was really really good! I pinned it a while ago but finally just got around to making it! I used ham because that was what I had and I also added more of everything because I used two boxes of pierogis (12/box). My 1.5 yr old son LOVED it! It is so hard trying to find a happy medium for his and my dinner and this was perfect! He had 2.5 helpings! Unheard of!! Thank you! Thank you!ย 

  10. Hi Randa: I love pierogies and just had to make this. I added some green peppers and it came out soo good! ย Butterโ€” more the better ha totally lickable right out of pan. ย
