This Bacon Pierogi Bake is one of those perfect weeknight dishes. It takes just a few minutes to put together and uses really inexpensive ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1 (16–ounce) package frozen potato and onion pierogies (such as Mrs. T’s)
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 center-cut bacon slices, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup (3 ounces) 1/3–less-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup thinly diagonally sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped seeded plum tomato
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Arrange the pierogies in an 11 x 7-inch glass baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cook bacon in a saucepan over medium heat until crisp; remove from pan. Set aside.
  3. Add garlic to drippings in pan, and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add 1/3 cup cream cheese to pan, and cook for 1 minute or until cream cheese begins to melt, stirring frequently. Gradually add chicken broth to pan, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Pour the cream cheese mixture evenly over pierogies.
  4. Top evenly with 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until bubbly and thoroughly heated. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with bacon, green onions, tomato, and pepper.
