Serving Suggestion

For added color and texture, serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.


This recipe can also be made using mashed fresh potatoes.

For extra creamy potatoes, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the reserved potato cooking water to potatoes when mashing them.


For a change of pace, substitute BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Cottage Cheese for the mashed potatoes.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good, but... I made this according to the recipe, knowing that I always "Gigi-ify" recipes later. I don't know how people can post a poor review and acknowledge that they didn't follow the recipe at all??? Anywho... My first reaction was, "Two starches? Hmmm.... But sure, let's do this!" It was easy to make and actually pretty tasty (I'd never used Bacon Bits before, ad while I will continue to cook my own for the main part, I'll keep a package oof these on hand for those meals that must be made super quickly!). As a quick side dish, this was very easy and quite enjoyable! I served it with a big salad of robust, crunchy greens-- served at the time of the meal so it was a side, therefore we ate less of the starches, and had some leftover for lunches, and baked chicken breasts.

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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Turned out very nicely; I fixed a pan of caramelized onions and mushrooms, (2 large Vidalia onions sliced thin and 1 pound of sliced mushrooms, stems removed cooked in 2 tablespoons butter) to add as a layer on top of the potato mixture. Will add a little more than 4 cups of potatoes when I fix this again; had a hard time getting it spread evenly and the layers were a bit thin in places.

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.

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 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!
