Okay, my family loves Jalapeno Pierogies, yet they are so hard to find...so, I made a concoction of my own.
It's fantastic might I add... Such yummy, cheesy, rich goodness.

If dieting, this is not the meal for you...unless you're taking a day off Lol....my family just loved this casserole. I used lots of sweet onion, butter, cheeses, sour cream, jalapenos, half n half and last but not least BACON!

You wouldn't have to add the Jalapeno...add whatever you like. It will be delicious!

I hope you enjoy this casserole as much as my family did. I served with a salad.

Enjoy!
