Pierogi & Tomato Bake
This dish tastes great and is so simple to make! I have made this on quite a few occasions when I have limited time to get dinner on the table. I serve it with a simple salad.
1 16oz package frozen potato & onion pierogis
4 slices of bacon
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 c. cream cheese
3/4 c. chicken or vegetable broth
1 c. shredded cheddar
3 medium sized tomatoes
Salt & Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400F
Spray an 11 X 7” glass dish with cooking spray. Arrange frozen pierogis evenly in the dish.
Cook bacon in a medium sized frying pan until crisp; remove from pan. Chop the bacon and then set it aside.
Drain some of the bacon grease out of the pan- leave about 1 Tbl. Add the minced garlic to the bacon grease and cook for about 1 minute. Add all the cream cheese and cook until it is melted. Slowly add the broth, whisking until mixture is smooth and creamy. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the pierogies. Top evenly with the cheddar cheese.
Bake at 400F for 15 minutes. Remove the dish and add the chopped tomatoes & chopped bacon. Return dish to the oven and cook for another 5 minutes.
Season with pepper. Serve immediately! Enjoy!
