Macaroni and Cheese Pierogies

Pierogies are little potato filled dumplings, boiled and then fried, although I’ve learned they can also be filled with other things like meats or cheeses. Depending on how you fix them, they could be a side or even a main dish, and the many possible ways to fix them are only limited by your imagination. This recipe for macaroni and cheese pierogies is so rich and yummy!

, Macaroni and Cheese Pierogies,

I’ve had problems in the past with pierogies sticking to the pan when I’m frying them, but with this recipe, you don’t have that problem since you’re baking them in a sauce.

, Macaroni and Cheese Pierogies,

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 16 ounce boxes of roasted garlic potato pierogies
  • 2 15 or 16 ounce jars of roasted garlic Alfredo sauce
  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons milk (any kind)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups broccoli (partially cooked)

, Macaroni and Cheese Pierogies,

Mix together the Alfredo sauce, milk, 1 1/2 cups of the Cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan together in a saucepan.

, Macaroni and Cheese Pierogies,

Heat over low to medium heat, stirring until the cheese melts.

, Macaroni and Cheese Pierogies,

Cover the bottom of a greased 9×13 inch casserole dish with a couple of spoonfuls of the sauce, and then layer over that one box of the pierogies.

Next layer half of the sauce and all of the partially cooked broccoli (if desired, or you can leave this out). The original recipe used peas, but I think broccoli  just seems to go with cheese!

Layer on the other box of pierogies.

, Macaroni and Cheese Pierogies,

Cover with the remaining sauce, Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for another 25 minutes.
