Easy Pierogi Casserole
Pierogies are heartwarming, rib-sticking dumplings filled with cheese, onions, bacon and potatoes. Typically taking all day to make, this time-saving version produces just-as-delicious results.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favourite KRAFT Calorie-Wise Dressing.
Note: You will need to cook about 2 lb. (900 g) baking potatoes (about 6) to get the 4 cups mashed potatoes needed to make this recipe.
Substitute: For a change of pace, substitute cottage cheese for the mashed potatoes.
Special Extra: Garnish with caramelized onions, sour cream and additional Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Recipe Pieces just before serving.
How to Make the Mashed Potatoes: Peel 2 lb./900 g (about 4) baking potatoes; add to boiling water. Cook 20 to 25 min. or until tender. Drain potatoes, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Return potatoes to saucepan; mash until smooth. For extra creamy potatoes, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water to the potatoes when mashing them.
