Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the fact that you called it "pierogi" which is plural and not pierogis. I love the fact that you called it "pierogi" which is plural and not pierogis. Pierog is singular. Kielbasa is also correct, not kielbasi. I am Polish so that is correct for us. Don't know of other languages. ANYWAY, this is a great recipe as to make pierogi takes hours. To make cheese pierogi we used dry cottage cheese, mashed, but it is almost impossible to find anymore. I rinse and drain cottage cheese and mix into the potatoes and will try that the next time I make this *********. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I jazzed it up a little and Loved it. I jazzed it up a little and Loved it. The mashed potatoes I made with cream cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, and a touch of cream. I fried my own bacon and used half the batch. I read another review and I sautaed onions and mushrooms and added a layer. So my layers consisted of noddles, potatoe mix, then sautaed mushrooms and onions. Very good, and my 15 month old loved it too. Heated up great the next day as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made this for dinner tonight! I made this for dinner tonight! Warning it may be called EASY, but it definitely takes a long time to prepare. I really would think twice about making it again. The only addition I made was adding fried onions to it...which just added to the long process of preparation! I agree that it would be better as a side dish to a ham or pork tenderloin. But then you would be spending more time on the side dish than the whole meal!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some tips I'd suggest: pre-soak the no-boil lasgna noodles in hot water for 5-10 min. Some tips I'd suggest: pre-soak the no-boil lasgna noodles in hot water for 5-10 min. before using; make the potatoes with LOTS of milk (the dry noodles absorb LOTS of liquid and made the potatoes very dry). As some have suggested -- if you like sauerkraut -- potatoes & saurerkraut pierogies are my favorites - definitely will add some next time. Also, I would suggest frying one's own bacon -- much tastier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I make this all the time for my fiance. I make this all the time for my fiance. However, I make it using lasagna, Idahoan instant garlic mashed potatoes, cream cheese, fresh garlic, onion (occasionally), and mozzarella cheese. I also add steamed broccoli and chicken to the mashed potato mixture now and it is absolutely delicious. This casserole usually lasts us a couple days and is a frequent request. A family favorite and We LOVE it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband loved this. My husband loved this. He had three servings. He asked me if I was putting it on the list, which meant he loved it. I made the lasagna noodles earlier and laid them out flat and separated them wth wax paper. It worked very well. I only had to mix everything and layer and bake. I would add fried onions instead of the green onions. This is a winner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe was delicious and different. This recipe was delicious and different. Next time I will definitely be making a cheese sauce. That's the one thing this was missing, was some type of sauce. I was also be putting in the whole bunch of green onions, not just 6 strands. It adds a really nice, fresh flavor. All in all my fiance was in love with this meal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was awesome and just like pierogis, but so much easier. This was awesome and just like pierogis, but so much easier. I used left over mashed potatoes to which I added some sour cream. I also added a can of saurkraut which extended my potatoes somewhat as I didn't have quite as much as the recipe said. Great dish and I froze the left overs for a quick dish in the future.
