Lazy Perogy Casserole

A sleeper I couldn't resist trying this recipe because it sounded so, well, strange. Surprise! It was delicious 'sort of a cross between lasagna and perogies. Dustin, our resident Perogy expert, had thirds.


  • 12 regular lasagna noodles, (not the oven-ready type)

  • 2 cups mashed potatoes

  • 2 cups cottage cheese

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion, sauteed in a little butter until just softened

  • 8 to 10 slices bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar

  • sour cream, as an accompaniment


  • Cook lasagna noodles in plenty of boiling water until tender. Drain thoroughly, rinse with cold water and drain again. Set aside.

  • In a large bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, cottage cheese, egg, onion and bacon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Brush the bottom of a 9 by 13-in. (22 by 33 cm) baking dish with a little melted butter. Line with 4 cooked lasagna noodles, overlapping them a bit to fit. Spoon half of the potato filling onto the noodles, spreading to cover. Sprinkle with some shredded cheddar cheese. Repeat with another layer of 4 noodles, the rest of the potato mixture and some more cheese.

  • Finally, cover with the last 4 lasagna noodles, and sprinkle the top with the rest of the cheese. Cover baking dish with foil, and bake at 350°F (180°C) for 30 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into squares to serve, accompanied by a dollop of sour cream.
