This is just awesome!! Tastes just like a pierogi without the hassle of making them, my BF ate about half of it the first night and then took it to work for lunch the next day. This is going to be a regular at our house. Next time I may use more bacon, but that's a personal preference. Yumm!! Thanks for this one yooper!

Oh Oh Oh!!!! I used a whole pound of bacon per Kim127's comments. My whole family liked this very much. It is going to be a keeper. Very good!

yum, yum, yum! Huge hit with family, without all the work of making pierogi, which are just to time consuming for me. Next time, I'm going to experiment with some different fillings, too! Adding sauerkraut or cabbage would be great. Got hubby's highest honor, "this is a definite do-again!"

This was a great recipe! However next time I will add salt and pepper to my potatos as I cook them because this was really bland until I added the sour cream to my bowl with salt and pepper and mixed it up. Also it didn't say if you should drain the butter and fat off the bacon so I didn't and it was really greasy, I think next time I will drain it off. I def. wont be making it often because it's so fattening, but it was REALLY yummy!!! Thanks for the reipce!

This is IT!!! Thanks Yopper, to bad I didn't discover this recipe years ago when I would have the kitchen covered in flour and dough from making home made pierogis. I could have ate this right out of the dish, it is simply easy to make and wonderfully delicious!!!

This was ok. I thought it was a lot of work for what was basically a baked potato with lasagna noodles and garlic. It tasted fine, but I probably won't make it again. I will just mix onions and bacon pieces in with mashed potatoes, top it with some cheese and have it all as a side dish. Thanks for the idea though!

Like many others, I played around with this somewhat to try to make it a bit easier. It's actually a lot of work to make-- thank goodness my husband stepped in to help! I made a huge batch of mashed potatoes (from scratch, probably almost 5 lbs worth, with butter, half&half, garlic powder and a bit of nutmeg) and mixed in a couple of cups of cheddar and the sauteed onions (didn't use the fresh garlic since I'd already used garlic powder). I broke the lasagna noodles in half before cooking, which made them easier to cook and to layer in the pan. Six of the half noodles per layer... noodles on the bottom, a layer of potatoes, some crumbled bacon, noodles, potatoes, bacon, noodles, potatoes, bacon and about a cup of grated colby-cheddar. Baked for about 40 minutes and served with chopped scallions and sour cream. Delish, great comfort food, but definitely something I'll do only occasionally because of the calories!

Serious comfort food - the whole family loved it. I omitted the bacon, but I'll bet that's delish.

Very good on a cold, windy day. I had leftover mashed potatoes so I put them to good use in this recipe. Next time I may add a splash of apple cider vinegar to the onions while cooking or I may stir the sour cream in with the mashed potatoes. Thank you for the recipe!

Major comfort food. I used more potatoes then the recipe stated and also put the noodles on the bottom and a layer of taters and cheese on top. Next time I will add more onion. This was simple and easy to make and delicious. Made forOne Dish Wonders.
