Pierogi Lasagna


I've been obsessed with potato based sauces the past few weeks, and even made a few that I didn't put up here. It all culminated with this amazing potato lasagna that tastes like a pierogi with every bite. Each layer of noodle gave way to a thick, creamy, cheesy cloud of potato deliciousness.  Thanks to reader Chris for the Idea!

To make your sauce, start by simmering potatoes in milk.

Once the potatoes are cooked and mashed, toss in sour cream.

Then the cheese goes in.

Build up your lasagna with the sauce, noodles, and some caramelized onions and scallions.

After it bakes, its browned and amazing looking.

Thick, hearty, and delicious.

Bacon obviously takes it to the next level.

4 cups milk
3 large potatoes
1 tub of sour cream
1 pound of cheddar
2 onions
1 bunch of scallions
1 pound lasagna
a few slabs of bacon

Chop the potatoes and place in large pot. Pour in the milk and bring to a simmer stirring occasionally and being careful not to burn the milk on the bottom of the pan. Bring some pasta water to a boil and cook your noodles. Meanwhile, cook the bacon and remove from pan. Slow cook the onions in the bacon fat. When the potatoes are tender, mash them right in the milk. Kill the heat and add the sour cream. Stir in the cheese. Layer the potato sauce, noodles, onions, and scallions in a deep baking dish. Bake about 30-45 minutes at 400 until browned on top. Top with bacon and serve.


Great idea - I just love pierogi and have to try this.
Gonna make some this weekend.
Thanks for the inspiration.

This had my mouth watering! I'll definitely have to try this one out

Oh my god man! I can't wait to share this with my sister who inspired the pierogi casserole! You totally blown my mind with the upgrades to this!

Love this idea. I have been trying to find time to make pierogi since the last time I made them... oh 3 years ago. I love stocking the freezer with them. This seems like a great shortcut.

Oh boy, this must be made soon! Sounds so so so good =)

Oh. Dear. Lord. I've suddenly lost complete interest in the green smoothie I'm trying to choke down in the interest of health.

I really want to make this...but I'm a little confused. It says "1 tub of sour cream"... but what size tub?

This may be the best thing I've seen in a while. I want it in my stomach right now. I'll probably be making it this week....

Why do you not have a simple print icon. I hate wasting paper on images....

Being Polish, we love Potato and Cheese Pierogi. And this lasagna takes just like it. We made this today and it was fabulous. A high five from me, hubby and our 3 sons!

This is going on our favorites list. So good!!

Thank you for the recipe!!

Wow, looks great, but my cholesterol numbers are too high for this one. I'll admire from afar!

How much is 1 tub of sour cream? Where I live they come in lots of sizes.

Food in my beard replied earlier that the tub of sour cream is 16oz :)
