American Pierogi Casserole
Comfort food at its finest, this American Pierogi Casserole is filled with mashed potatoes, egg noodles, onions, American and cheddar cheese, and lots of butter. It's great for any get together or a warm, cozy dinner.
- 6 cups mashed potatoes
- 12 ounces extra wide egg noodles
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 10 tablespoons butter, separated
- 18 slices American cheese
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)
Cook the egg noodles in salted, boiling water for the shortest time suggested on the package. Drain and rinse under cold water until cooled; drain completely.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter. Slice all but 2 tablespoons of the butter into thin slices.
Saute the onion in one tablespoon of the butter in a pan over medium heat until softened, about five minutes. Remove from the heat.
Spread 1/3 of the mashed potatoes evenly into the baking dish, top with 1/3 of the noodles, 1/3 onions, 9 slices American cheese (plus 1/3 cup of the cheddar, if using), and 1/3 of the sliced butter scattered on top. Repeat two more layers.
Cover with aluminium foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
