Easy Pierogi Lasagna Recipe with 5 Ingredients

Pierogi are delicious Polish dumplings often filled with potatoes and cheese. Turn that into a cheesy pierogi lasagna for a quick and easy meal.

Jump to Recipe

One of the foods that I was introduced to when I met my husband was pierogi. They are Polish dumplings made by filling a pastry with either a sweet or savory mixture. The pierogi we eat is usually potato and cheese-filled. Since the pierogi taste similar to pasta, we decided to try pierogi lasagna. 

We layered with mashed potatoes, cooked onions, and cheddar cheese. This is a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes for this recipe, too. It’s like a pierogi casserole with all the delicious flavors together. Pure comfort food! It is the perfect potluck-friendly casserole. 

Justin’s grandma gave me her homemade pierogi recipe, which we have done a few times. The recipe is delicious, but it takes a lot of work and a daunting task. I make them in a huge batch to freeze, but sometimes we need a quicker meal that takes less work for those busy weeknights. Making a ton of individual dumplings often takes me most of the day. 

There are so many ways to make a pierogi. My homemade recipe also has a variant with sauerkraut that Justin really likes. But for the pierogi lasagna, we stuck to one that we all would eat which is the cheesy potato pierogies. And it’s the easier version. Next time, I may try to make a small batch of this with other fillings.

The first time I tried this, I bought the “oven-ready” lasagna noodles. Trust me, they may have their place, but not in this recipe. The noodles don’t get soft enough in this recipe when it’s baked, so you need to have regular lasagna noodles, the type that gets boiled before using. 

Serving Suggestions

The best side dish to go with the pierogi lasagna would be a small salad. You could also try a light cucumber salad

You can top the pierogi lasagna with a few things:

  • Sliced green onions
  • Cottage cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Ricotta cheese
  • A dollop of sour cream
  • Parsley
  • Garlic powder
  • Basil
  • Butter
  • Basil pesto

Pierogi Lasagna Step by Step

Ingredients

  • 8 oz lasagna noodles (NOT oven-ready)
  • 5 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter

  • Salt and black pepper (to taste)
  • 3 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375F and grease 9×13 baking dish. Cook the lasagna noodles and mashed potatoes according to the package directions.

In a large skillet, melt the butter and sauté the onion until soft over medium-high heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Place lasagna noodles in a single layer on the bottom of the dish.

Layer half of the mashed potatoes on top of the noodles and spread them evenly.

Top with half of the sautéed onions.

Sprinkle 1 cup of cheese on top.

Repeat with another layer of noodles, potatoes, onions, and cheese. Top lasagna with the remaining noodles and cheese.

Pierogi Lasagna Leftovers

Storage: Cover the remaining pierogi lasagna with aluminum foil and refrigerate for 2-3 days. 

Reheating: The best way to reheat this is to place the entire thing back in the oven until warm. Or warm a single serving in the microwave. If it seems dry, you can add a knob of butter to the top.

  1. I grew up eating pierogies too so this makes me very happy! It looks like the perfect comforting meal to have on a cold winter’s night. Yum!

    1. Oh gosh, there were so many delicious things in Italy! But honestly, the one that stands out the most is the Gelato that we got from a street vendor. It was the best ice cream I’ve ever had in my life!! I also learned that they call red sauce “gravy” when I was looking for some one night.

  2. 5 stars
    That looks delicious. I’ve never tried this before and have never thought to add mashed potatoes to any kind of lasagne.

  3. I didn’t even know there was polish delicacies. This reminds me a lot of of Mexican food for some reason but looks simply and yummy x
