Easy Pierogi Turkey Casserole Recipe

Easy Pierogi Turkey Casserole Recipe, nothing says comfort food better than Pierogi! Buttery potatoes, cheese, smoked turkey topped with sour cream to name a few components of this goodness! Dig in and enjoy!
Hola Amigos! I love easy meals for the weekend and I believe I have a good one for you here. This one will feed not only your family but friends and guest too. Perfect meal to take to a picnic, party or to bake 2 freeze 1 sort of deal.
Pierogi! They are a big thing here in Mi, since we are the 3rd state in the country with the largest ethnic Polish community! We love them! these delicious little potato dumplings are comfort food at its best. Filled with cheese, broccoli, mushrooms or cabbage, pierogi are a staple of traditional Polish Cuisine. Boiled them first, fried them in butter and top them of with sour cream, mushrooms or bacon they are a great meal.
My casserole has pretty much all these ingredients in a deconstructed way. I did a bit of research as I always do and most of the interpretations of this dish used lasagna noodles (which sometimes are a hassel to cook) or frozen Pierogi. Nothing wrong with this but I needed something a bit more savory and easy to prepare and came up with this.
My guys love abundant amounts of protein in their meals, especially the hubs, therefore I added turkey. It's light enough to balance the potato and pasta.

Like I mentioned above a traditional Pierogi is topped with onions and fried in butter. Instead I caramelized my onions in butter and added to the pasta.

Cabbage is a Pierogi filling per excellence but my guys are not too fond of it, so I switch to some savory broccoli for my veggie portion of the dish.

And of course cheese...it's not a casserole in this house if it's not oozing cheese. Sharp Cheddar was my choice.
Easy Pierogi Turkey Casserole Recipe! a touch of Polish comfort food! Buttery potatoes layered with smoked turkey, cheesy broccoli and yes...more cheese! Just dig in and enjoy!

Put it in the oven once put together and 45 minutes later enjoy a slice of happiness! Oh...let's not forget the sour cream and for a pretty touch, some chives! Yum!
Easy Pierogi Turkey Casserole Recipe, this dish is comfort food at it's best! Buttery potatoes, sweet caramelized onions, broccoli and cheese are among the ingredients! Grab a fork and dig in!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and even though it's always great to have a fresh batch of handmade delicious Pierogi,when non  it's available, this recipe is an excellent substitute.
Have a wonderful weekend my friends...and remember everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!,
