Crockpot Pierogi Casserole with Kielbasa
3 boxes Mrs T’s classic cheddar mini pierogies
4 cups chicken broth
1 package (8 ounce) cream cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 pound kielbasa, sliced
Salt & pepper to taste
In a saucepan, warm the chicken broth and cream cheese together until the cream cheese has melted. Combine all ingredients in the crockpot. Cook on high 3 – 4 hours until most of the liquid is absorbed. Or on low 6 – 7 hours.
This is a very thick and rich dish. We love to add some fresh vegetables to this dish to make it a bit more complete. Broccoli or snap peas work very nice. I have even had a few reviewers say they added sour kraut too.
There are so many different flavors of frozen pierogies on the market today, you could mix any flavor combination to add a little something extra to this dish. Substituting cooked bacon for the kielbasa is also a family favorite.
