Almost Pierogies

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Darkhunter

As a young kid running the streets with my friends, I remember going to the back door of the neighborhood tavern and begging the cooks for pierogies. Nothing tasted better than those pleaded for treats. Since I can no longer do that, here's the next best thing. Hope you enjoy.

This is a delicious casserole with a simple, yet interesting combination of ingredients. I used all sharp cheddar cheese and instant mashed potatoes. My kids loved it!
