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!

VARIATIONS Sprinkle the pierogis with some crumbled pieces of bacon for added flavoring. Toss in some kielbasa/sausage or some Easy Shredded Chicken

How to Make Pierogi Casserole

A lazy and tasty casserole is such a comforting dish!

  1. Place the pierogis in a baking dish.
  2. Top with cooked ham and onions.
  3. Pour on the sauce.
  4. Cover with cheese and bake (as per the recipe below).

With the addition of ham, this is indeed a complete meal! Add a side salad or Fried Cabbage and your dinner is ready to go!

Best Shortcut Tips

  • The best part of this recipe is that the sauce, sautéed onions, and ham can be made the day before. Just assemble and cook.
  • Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 3 days.
    • To reheat any leftovers, place them in an ovenproof dish and place them in a 325°F oven until heated through.
  • This casserole can also be frozen. Just remember that sometimes creamy sauces lose some of their consistency after freezing. To cook after it has been frozen, let it thaw and cook as per the recipe below.
  • While pierogi casserole is a super easy recipe and already has easy clean-up, you can make it even easier if you line your baking dish with foil.
  • Be sure to spray liberally with cooking spray or even brush with melted butter before laying your ingredients. What could be easier for busy weeknights!

    Amazing! My husband and I are foodies and are pretty picky when it comes to recipes and this one was delicious and I will definitely make it again. Thank you!

  2. 5 stars
    Thanks For Sharing this amazing recipe. My family loved it. I will be sharing this recipe with my friends. Hope the will like it.

  3. It’s really delicious but only one box of frozen Pierogis fit in the bottom of my 9×13 pan. Do you double up? We leave out the meat entirely because I don’t eat pork and it’s still pretty yummy. Maybe I’ll try shredded chicken next time!

    1. Hi Barara, the casserole asks for 28 pierogies. Take a peek at the video for more information about how it is put together. You can see the pan in the video. The pierogies are one layer on the bottom. And adding chicken sounds great! Hope that helps.

    1. We have only made the recipe as listed Julie. If making ahead of time, I would probably recommend fresh pierogies. If you do try storing it with frozen pierogies, let us know how it goes!

    This exceeded my expectations! My husband, two year old, and I loved it! Thanks for the recipe!! 

    1. Glad you loved it Chandni! It’s so great finding a recipe that your family loves!!

  5. Yum! We’ve made this several times, and my favorite version uses feta and spinach pierogis with cream of chicken soup. It’s a guaranteed hit with our 1.5yo!
