We love pierogis and this casserole is a modern rendition of the traditional meal. It really tastes like a pierogi. The layers of pasta and potatoes are cheesy and delicious. As if that wasn't decadent enough, buttered onions are mixed into the potatoes and baked on top. Oh my... This is a savory dish that's warm and comforting. Your family will love it.

How to Make Pierogi Casserole

Test Kitchen Tips
After the casserole comes out of the oven, sprinkle with a bit of cracked pepper and fresh parsley for added color.

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook noodles according to package.
  2. Cut potatoes into equal chunks.
  3. Add potatoes to boiling water and cook until tender.
  4. While your potatoes are boiling, saute onions in butter until soft.
  5. Mash your potatoes while hot.
  6. Add in cheese and beat with mixer.
  7. Add 1/3 of the onions/butter mixture to the potato mixture and salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Preheat oven at 350. Generously butter a 9x13” baking pan/dish. Place a layer of cooked noodles to cover bottom of pan.
  9. Then a layer of potato mixture.
  10. Repeat ending with noodles.
  11. Spoon the rest of the butter and onion over top.
  12. Cover with foil and place pan on a cookie sheet just in case the butter runs over the sides. Bake at 350 until heated through - approximately 30-40 min.
  13. Optional: I take off foil after 30-40 minutes and sprinkle more cheese on top and place back in oven until cheese is melted.
