Do you love the taste of Pierogis?

Those Eastern European dumplings stuffed with cream mashed potato goodness, but dread the amount of work involved with making the dough, stuffing, and sealing them by hand?

Then this here’s the thing for you. Pierogi LASAGNA.

Now it’s true you could go to the frozen food aisle and just buy a bag (and I will, in a pinch), but they can’t ever compete flavor wise with the real thing.

Or even with our more modernized version.

Pasta, potatoes, cheese, and bacon.

Does it get any better than that? I’m pretty sure those are the hubs and sons four favorite food groups. All four of them, lol.

Still, they might not be the best groups to associate with (especially all at once) if you’re watching your carb intake.

If that’s not a major concern, then throw caution to the wind and buckle up for this wild flavorful ride you’re about to get on. It certainly doesn’t get any more eventful, or enjoyable, than with this Pierogi Lasagna.

Good luck stopping at a single slice. Not a single person in my house has that much self control.

Alternating layers of rich cottage cheese, and creamy whipped mashed potatoes studded with bacon, ham, and a generous serving of cheddar cheese. Lucius would be a fair description of these gorgeous layers.

Sandwiched between a traditional pasta base of cooked lasagna noodles, this Pierogi Lasagna is topped with another sprinkle of cheddar cheese, crisp, crumbled bacon, more chunks of chopped ham, and oven-baked to perfection.

You need this delicious old school Eastern European twist on the classic Italian dish in your life. At least once, or twice.

With the colder days and colder nights approaching, there’s no better time of year to give it a try.

  1. I love your modernized version! It looks much better than the freezer section, and less time consuming than starting the whole process from scratch. Thanks for sharing this recipe at the fiesta this week!! Happy FF! 😀

  2. I think the noodle ratio is off – it should be 3 per layer vs 4 or you run out … and garlic vs. onion powder in the directions. Also, it says to add chopped ham on top but you didn’t downsize the portion in the mixing…

    1. Thanks for the heads up! I edited the recipe to fix the errors, but it did say ‘extra’ ham/bacon in the instructions. I noted it in the ingredients list to prevent any future confusion 🙂

  3. I’m a bit confused. Step 6 just says repeat. Does that mean repeat steps 3, 4 & 5? That would mean you’d need 20 lasagna noodles. And you’d need to only use half of each mixture in steps 4 and 5 right? I don’t mean to sound super critical, I’m just not sure if I’m misunderstanding and I don’t want to mess it up. It sounds amazing!
