Here is an old favorite that I had to share with you during this busy Christmas Holiday season.
This recipe is a twist on one of my favorite casseroles that is taken to a whole new level with the irresistible flavor of bacon. Smoky bacon infuses a creamy cheese sauce and combines with herbs and spices to create an incredibly decadent cheese sauce that is perfect for this dish...

Helpful Tips to make Cheesy Chicken Pierogi Bake:

  • Pre-shredded cheeses have additives to help keep the cheese from sticking together, called anti-caking agents. They also change the way the cheese melts and will cause thickening of your recipes. Skip the pre-shredded cheese and grate your own. I store it in a zip-top bag in the fridge and it keeps for several weeks.

    What you will need to make Cheesy Chicken Pierogi Bake:

    • Medium Sauce Pan
    • 9x13 Baking DishI have my favorites and this set is one of them. The 9x13 is perfect for casseroles and the smaller size is awesome for making 1/2 a casserole recipe.

    With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
