We love Pierogi in this house! We also love cheese, cheese, and more cheese. So, I came up with this recipe and it disappears in a flash every time I bake it. The great thing about this recipe is it is very versatile and can be used as a main dish, side dish, vegetarian dish, and you decide how much effort you want to put into making it. The super easy cheese sauce is what makes it taste so decadent and like you spent a lot of time making it. It's also very kid friendly.
Prepare a 9X13 baking dish. Pour frozen pierogi in pan and spread out evenly. If using canned chicken spread evenly over pierogi
In a medium saucepan, combine heavy cream, soup and cheddar cheese. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until cheese is completely melted. Remove from heat and add smoked paprika if using it. Stir well.
Pour sauce evenly over pierogi. Top with bacon if using and green onions.
Cover pan with foil and bake @ 350 for 25 minutes.
