Perogies are reasonable and can be made intoa very tasty one dish casserole incorporating a few veggies that even kids will eat. I made a mistake when I reached in the cupboard for a can of Tomato soup and didn't look - opened it and it was Tomato Noodle Soup - It worked great so I am puting the option in the ingredients, The Noodles just melded right into the casserole. I apologize to all that like authentic perogy recipes (I love traditional dishes too) but this is very tasty! Takes minutes to put together . A green salad goes well as a side dish. Double or triple the recipe - Use your imagination with the veggies, great for "clean the fridge".
- 10 potato & cheese pierogies, cooked
- 12 ounces your favoite smoked spicy sausage, cut in bite size pieces or make it meatless
- 3⁄4 cup raw cauliflower or 3⁄4 cup broccoli
- 3⁄4 cup raw carrot, sliced
- 3⁄4 cup raw mushrooms, sliced or 1 (1 ounce) candrained sliced mushrooms
- 1⁄2 cup sweet onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons hot sauce, to taste (I use Denzil's Peaches & Scream)
- 1 (10 ounce) can condensed tomato soup or 1 (10 ounce) can tomato noodle soup
- salt, to taste
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Cook your Perogies according to instructions.
- Usually about 5 minutes in salted boiling water.
- Chop your onion, slice the mushrooms, slice the carrots& cut any other veggies into bite size pieces.
- Lightly grease a 9"x9" baking dish.
- Place the sausage& veggies in the dish.
- Place perogies on top, mix the hot sauce with the soup, spoon over the top making sure that each perogy is covered.
- Lightly cover with foil.
- Bake for 45 minutes, remove foil, top with cheese reurn to oven uncovered for a further 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
I omitted the sausage, used 15 perogies to fit my baking dish (a size bigger than 9x9, worked out well for leftovers) used mushrooms, cauliflower, red pepper, bit of salsa mixed in with soup, 1/2 mozza and 1/2 cheddar. Caramelized onions to slather over the top at serving time (omitted onions in baking). This baked 40 min @ 375F and 10 min without lid. DH liked this more than me..maybe I'll add sausage next time and find the zip I was missing!
This recipe is great--goes together easily and incorporates several good-for-you foods. I do make it without the hot sauce, though. Our family likes it better that way.
Talk about warm and comforting------this is it! I used some steamed cauliflower and carrots that were hanging around in the frig, red onion, baby bella mushrooms, Mrs. T's periogi's(the 4 cheese flavor)and plain ole' smoked sausage. Wonderful supper for the 2 of us and enough left for DH's lunch tomorrow! Thanx for posting this one Bergy, I'll be using it again!
