Pierogi's are polish dumplings usually filled with potato or other meats. I have some friends who were going through a hard time this week and happen to love Polish food. I wanted to make them some comfort food to help them feel better. I made this Pierogi casserole and BBQed glazed kielbasa (I'll share that recipe next).It's pretty economical but not low in fat, comfort food isn't supposed to be. It can't sufficiently warm your soul if it's not ladden with fat, right?!
1 cup mashed potatoes (instant or leftovers is fine)
1 lb shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup butter
2 -3 medium onions, diced
9 -12 lasagna noodles
1.) Cook noodles as directed on package to al dente.
2.) Saute onions in 1 stick of butter (may use more if desired).
3.) Butter 13x9 inch pan with remaining 1/2 stick butter.
4.) Mix sauteed onions with mashed potatoes.
5.) Layer noodles, then potatoes, then cheese, and repeat, ending with cheese.
6.) Cover with foil and bake in a 350° oven for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
(top with sour cream and garnish with chives/green onion)
