Cozy Delicious Casserole
Truly, there is no substitute for homemade pierogis or ones that you purchase from a farmer’s market. But if you are craving pierogis and are not able to bring homemade ones to your table, then this Pierogi Casserole recipe is the next best thing!
- Sometimes referred to as lazy pierogis, this no-fuss meal has to be one of the easiest meals to create! All the ingredients are layered in one pan, making prep and clean-up a breeze.
- Pierogis are a tender delicacy especially when they are homemade. However, store-bought versions are quite delicious and can easily be found in the frozen section of the supermarket.
- Baked in a simple mushroom sauce, these pierogis are so tender. Nothing can beat the warm layer of cheese on top which is baked to a golden, warm, and delicious crust in the oven.
- Serve it with Tomato Salad Recipe, or a Quick and Easy Borscht Soup, or some Fried Cabbage with Bacon.
Ingredients & Variations
PIEROGIS Use homemade pierogis or store-bought versions. They can easily be found in the frozen section of the supermarket.
THE SAUCE A creamed can of mushroom soup, some smooth velvety butter, milk, and chopped ham are all that is needed for this simple sauce.
Sub out the ham for cooked bacon or even cooked ground sausage. Any of these options would be equally delicious!

- To reheat any leftovers, place them in an ovenproof dish and place them in a 325°F oven until heated through.
