Ah the mysterious perogie….. We do occasionally like to watch some shows on the Food Network. And we kept hearing about this thing called a perogie. No idea what it was and it just kept popping up in random shows and what not. So our curiosity was peaked. It was time to find out about this magical little treat.
Like 3 weeks ago we saw a box of frozen potato and 4 cheese pergoies at Walmart……..success!!! We bought them and we were all excited about it. Then we got home and put them in the freezer…..and that was it. There they remained, quite possibly till the end of time. I had no idea what they really were or what to actually do with them.
Yesterday we had one of our really good friends and her kids over for a little bit while their house was being shown in an open house. This good friend of mine is very generous with her time and help. She and her daughter were helping Levi with some much needed lawn work. So I thought it would be nice to have everyone over for dinner and just hangout. Here is my chance!!! Alanna told me how much they love perogies so I thought why not?!? I went onto Pintrest to get some inspiration and came up with:
Sausage Perogie Casserole
- 1 16 oz package of frozen potato and 4 cheese perogies
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- 1 8 oz package of cream cheese
- 1/4 cup onion- chopped
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
- 1 package of Guy Fieri Mozzarella and Parmesean Sausages. (I really love Guy Fieri’s new line of chicken and smoked sausages) Sliced. I also sliced up a regular Hillshire Farm smoked sausage because I love really meaty dishes.
- 1 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Preheat oven to 400. Saute the onion in the olive oil until soft and starts to be translucent. Add the garlic cook another 2 minutes. Add all the sausage and cook till browned. Add chicken broth, cream cheese and parsley. Heat until you have a smooth creamy sauce.
In a 11×9 pan spray with cooking spray and arrange the perogies in the bottom on the pan. pour the sauce over the perogies. Cook in the oven for 15 minutes. Add cheese and continue cooking for 5 minutes.
We served it up with salad and a biscuit and a glass of white wine!! This is a really easy dish and is great for serving to guests or for a quick meal during a busy week.
