Have you ever eaten Pierogies? Do you know what they are?
You can buy them in the frozen foods section of your grocer.
The dish I’m sharing with you today is now one of our favorite casseroles. To begin, sauté chopped onion and ham in butter and olive oil. When the onion is transparent, toss in some thyme.
Add chicken broth and line Pierogies into the pan. I like to buy the 32-ounce size package of Pierogies and use half at a time. For a large crowd, it’s easy to make a double batch.
Cover and cook for about 6 minutes, turning Pierogies midway. Pierogies will be slightly tender. Add frozen green peas that have thawed.
I tell you, you are going to l-o-v-e those Pierogies!
The whole cream is added and the entire contents of the pan are transferred to a baking dish.
Cover it all with Swiss cheese and bake. You can use sliced Swiss or shredded. I find that sliced Swiss is sometimes easier to find than shredded.
After baking, serve and enjoy! A side salad or fruit is perfect, and HH would tell you not to forget the bread. He’s a bread man.
I wish I could explain how delicious this is, but you’ll have to take my word for it. Here’s the recipe for you to print and share.
