    I'm from Pittsburgh, and we call this lazy man pierogi. We use cheddar, and bake at 350' for 30 minutes to let the flavors blend. Never have leftovers!

    This was SO GOOD. Though I used cheddar cheese and we decided it tasted kind of funny. Next time I'll try American. I didn't follow the directions exactly... I layered the onions on top of the potatos and then baked the whole thing until the cheese melted. I used Idaho Red instant potatoes. -- UPDATE: Made this again using American cheese and it was much better than Cheddar. This time I added ground turkey seasoned with Poultry Grill and Broil seasoning, and cooked the onions with the turkey. I only use a couple tablespoons of butter and pour it on top.

    Delicious! I grew up in Pennsylvania and loved pierogis but now live in Illinois where they don't sell them...this was a great substitution!! I cut the recipe in half (more or less - I didn't exactly measure all the ingredients) and put it in a 8x8 dish. To use up noodles I had, I used half lasagna noodles and half egg noodles (lasagna noodles on the bottom, egg on the top). I used one pouch of betty crocker mashed potatoes, which I think was more than the recipe called for - I think it could have used even more potato personally. However, I found the onion to be a little much (I used one medium onion) and the butter to be WAY too much, which I did measure to be exactly half. I would recommend using less to cut down on grease. I also used shredded sharp cheddar. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Mmmmmmm! :) I added garlic in with the onion and butter, used cheddar and mozzarella in addition to the American cheese, and baked this for about 10 minutes at 350. Also used leftover mashed potatoes rather than instant! Definitely will be making again!
