This was decent. I'm Polish, so I grew up eating pierogis, and I've gotten so sick of them. This sounded like an interesting twist on regular pierogis, and all in all it's not a bad side dish. Next time I might skip the tomatoes though, they add too much acidity and Poles would never serve pierogies with tomatoes. The mushrooms and onions are a traditional topping though. My parents also liked chopped bacon on theirs as well, and I might try using that next time. This can also easily be served as a main dish if you use meat pierogis, which is nice.
This is fantastic!! I am always looking for new ways to use pierogis, but I may never have them any other way again. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
very good melted some cheese on top 5 stars
My husband and I really enjoyed this casserole! We added some grated mozerella. I might add some more tomatoes next time because the last couple of pierogies were a little dry.
Sorry Gang, forgot to add this for you as an fyi--something I tried and it turned out great! Even if you don't have the potato and cheddar one go ahead and use the potato & onion--still following the recipe--about 5 minutes before it due to come out of the oven, grate up--for real, not in the precut nonsense--your favorite cheese, sharp, NY'er sharp, mozellera, etc and let it melt over the casserole. Its awesome and that's a promise! Enjoy! Again thanks for sharing this recipe, its great!!
Last month I made Rita L's Potato Perogies (Pierogie [peer-Oh-Gee] Potato Pierogies Perogies) and froze a small batch. I've now used them to make this casserole and boy, was it good! I had to substituted a 400g tin of tomatoes for fresh, but otherwise made it exactly to the recipe. It was so tasty that I will definately make it again. I also think Pierogie Casserole would make a great main course for an informal vegetarian dinner party; perhaps cooked as individual portions and served up with a crisp green salad and crusty bread. Now who can I invite round?
Delicious flavors and a great way to use fresh tomatos from the garden.
