Vegetarian Recipe For When You Gave Up Meat For Lent

Pierogi Casserole - A savory dish marrying the flavors of traditional pierogi with the convenience of a casserole, layered with tender pasta, creamy potatoes, cheese, and savory onions, baked to golden perfection.


1. Pierogi pasta 2. Potatoes 3. Cheese 4. Onions 5. Sour cream

Step 1

Mix flour, eggs, water, and salt until a smooth dough forms. Knead the dough until elastic, then let it rest for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Divide the dough into manageable portions and roll each into a thin sheet. Use a round cutter to cut out pierogi circles.

Step 3

Place a spoonful of mashed potatoes and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese onto each pierogi circle. Fold over the dough and seal the edges, creating semi-circular pierogi.

Step 4

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and carefully drop in the pierogi. Cook until they float to the surface, indicating they are done. Remove and drain.

Step 5

Layer the boiled pierogi in a casserole dish, alternating with crispy bacon pieces. Top with dollops of sour cream and an extra sprinkle of cheddar cheese. Bake until golden and bubbly.
