Lazy Pirogi Casserole

(this recipe is from the “Sister McGuigan School Cookbook”, which was a gift from far away cousins many many years ago! )

  • Fresh sheet noodles for 9×13”pan –enough for 3 layers, or 9 lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp onion salt
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp onion salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup butter (yes!)
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • Crumbled cooked bacon (optional), approximately 6-8 slices.  This is our family’s non-vegetarian addition 😉

Cook the noodles and line the bottom of a 9×13” pan with them.

In a medium bowl, mix cottage cheese, egg and onion salt.  Spoon over noodles and spread, then cover with a layer of noodles.

Mix cheddar cheese, salt, onion salt, and pepper with the potatoes.  Spread over the noodles.  Cover with a third and final layer of noodles.

Heat butter until hot, then sauté onions until transparent.  Pour evenly over noodles.  Cover with foil, and bake in 350F oven for 30 minutes.

Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.  If using, sprinkle crumbled bacon evenly over top of pan.  Serve with sour cream.
