Lazy Perogi Casserole

Total Time

This recipe has cottage cheese and Cheddar cheese. It was a last ditch effort to try and serve a different kind of dinner.Update: 10/28/2008 this definitely needs some extra zing! I suggest you use red pepper flakes, make it a pinch or two - put it in the butter or margarine that you are going to use for the onions.;) Let the flakes cook while butter or margarine is heating up. Then saute the onions! Hopefully, this will help the dish be more pleasing to your palette. :)

For the amount of work this took, and lack of flavour, I will just buy frozen perogies at the grocery store.

I followed the recipe exactly and was somewhat disappointed. While it does take less time than traditional perogi, it still took almost 2 hours to cook and assemble this dish. Adding the extra butter as they suggest at the end made the dish slippery and the layers slid apart when you cut it. Decent taste, but I'd rather buy frozen than make this again.

This casserole was excellent! It really reminded me of perogies, except without all the work. I didn't have cottage cheese, so I used another layer of mashed potates, and it worked great. My son could not wait for these to be done. I had tried other perogi casseroles before but they mostly tasted like plain old lasagna noodles, but not this one. I know I will be making this a lot. Would make a perfect Lenten meal too! Thank you DiScharf for sharing this. :)
