Recipes with pierogies

Being from Pittsburgh, I am always coming up with recipes with pierogies. The pierogi rules in Pittsburgh. So creating recipes like xx and xx is easy for me to develop.

Pierogi casserole

I really wanted to make a Pierogi casserole. However, I wanted to make it as crockpot pierogies. In order to cook the pierogies in the slow cooker, I needed a great sauce for the pierogies. This sauce for the pierogies had to not only taste great but had to make the pierogi casserole stand out.

Sauce for pierogies

Thinking of a Julia Child recipe for xx I decided to do a version of it for these crockpot pierogies. A Beurre Blanche basically a hot butter emulsion with vinegar.
 
How do you make butter? It heavy whipping cream that is used in making butter. So let’s make a sauce for the pierogies with heavy cream and balsamic vinegar.
 
Sounds odd, however, the combination of these two ingredients really is what makes these crockpot pierogies flavorful! But this pierogi casserole needs something else to give it the wow factor.

Pierogi and kielbasa

Pierogi and kielbasa go so well together. So what if I also add onions and bacon to these slow cooker pierogi? The result was an amazing recipe that would be perfect for tailgating.
 
That’s right, this pierogi casserole is great for a tailgate recipe. Throw some burgers on the grill and serve up this recipe with pierogies. You will be the talk of the tailgate party for sure!

Tailgate Crock Pot Pierogies with Kielbasa, Bacon, and Onions Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours 10 minutes

Tailgate pierogies is an awesome recipe that uses pierogies, bacon, onions, and kielbasa. These crockpot pierogies secret is the sauce. Looking for a pierogi casserole that will amaze the taste buds? Look no further!

Ingredients

  • 1 stick of butter (divided)
  • 1 large onion (sliced thin)
  • 1 bag of Oscar Meyer Bacon recipe pieces
  • 2 boxes of Ms ‘s Pierogies (I like one box potato and cheese and another with sauerkraut)
  • 1 package of skinless polish kielbasa (cut up)
  • 1 pint of heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 slices of Muenster cheese
  • 8 oz sour cream

Instructions

  1. First thing want to do is lightly spray the crock pot with a cooking spray, this help with the pierogies sticking to the crock pot. After that, place 4 tablespoons of the butter in the crock pot, and turn the crock pot on high. This is going to melt the butter.
  2. Next, melt the rest the butter in a fry pan and saute the onions, saute them till they are just starting to get golden.
  3. Once the onions are starting to turn golden, add the bacon to the onions, and let them cook for about a minute together, stir constantly in that minute.
  4. Next, add the balsamic vinegar and heavy cream to the onion mixture. reduce the heat and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes. make sure your stirring so you do not burn.
  5. Next add the muenster cheese to the sauce and turn the heat off. You just want it to melt into it, takes about a minute for this. stir and set the sauce aside. You can use another cheese, I happen to have this cheese and I was surprised how good it made the sauce.
  6. The butter should be melted or half way there in the crock pot, add the kielbasa to the crock pot.
  7. Layer the pierogies on top the kielbasa. I like to use both potato and sauerkraut, that just a taste thing but you can use all potato kinds if you choose.
  8. Pour the onion mixture on top the pierogies
  9. Top it off with the sour cream. Cover and let it cook on high for about 4 hours. Half way to cooking give the crock pot a stir, so the butter comes up and the sauce is coming down. Plus it helps with the pierogies sticking.
  10. Take some out the pot and ENJOY!

    Love this recipe! Everyone LOVED it. I was drinking too much and kept calling them “Truck Stop Pierogis,” so that name has stuck in our family now. So, other than our name change, the recipe is perfect as is!

    Are the pierogis supposed to be frozen when you place them in the crockpot?

    Can I use Havarti cheese instead? If so how many ounces would you use…I usually buy it in block form.

    Thank you!!
