“We have these pierogies every year for Christmas and even though it might sound strange it is one of our family's favorites. You don't even have to wait for Christmas! Just a note.. We usually make 2 casserole dishes full and it is enough for almost 40 people.”

1-2 casseroles

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 kg pierogi (your favorite kind)
  • 1 liter whipping cream (liquid)
  • 6 tablespoons butter or 6 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Lightly grease one large or two small baking dishes.
  3. Boil the pierogies in batches until mostly cooked but not completely cooked.
  4. Place one layer in the baking dish with half the onions and dot with 3 tbsps. marg. or butter.
  5. Repeat layers, sprinkling with salt and pepper.
  6. Fill the baking dish not quite to the top with the whipping cream and place on a baking sheet as this helps prevent leaking onto the bottom of the oven.
  7. Cover and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until pierogies are fork tender.
