Can I make Pierogi In The Oven?
Yes, you sure can. I suggest layering this casserole like you would a lasagne. One layer of frozen pierogis, a layer of kielbasa, a layer of sauce, finished with a layer of cheese.
Continue layering until all of your ingredients have been used.
Bake in a 350-degree oven 30 – 45 minutes. Until the cheese is bubbly and the top is a light golden brown.
How Long Will The Leftovers Pierogies Last?
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, covered for up to one week.
Serving Size/Scaling Back This Recipe
You will be able to feed 6 – 8 people … or 3 – 4 hungry teenage boys with this recipe! It makes A LOT of food. You could reduce the recipe by using 2 boxes of pierogies, 2 – 3 cups broth, 1/2 cup shredded cheese, and 4 oz. cream cheese. adjust your add-ins to suit your taste. There really is no exact science here, it’s a recipe that was created on a whim with what we had on hand and this is what works well for our busy household.
Tips & Suggestions
Warm the cream cheese and chicken broth together in a small saucepan just until the cream cheese is melted. Then combine the ingredients together in your crockpot.
Regular size pierogies hold up better in this casserole. Mini pierogis are fine if you are not concerned about them falling apart.
The texture of the dish
This Crockpot Pierogi Casserole is just that, it is a casserole. There will not be much liquid left after it is fully cooked. The pierogis are like tiny little sponges, soaking up that delicious chicken broth until there is none left. Which will cause them to be a bit mushy/soft. Something we absolutely love around our house. If you are not a fan of thick and rich dishes, you might want to try one of our yummy Soup Recipes instead.
