How to make it

  • 1 bag of egg noodles, wide, broad whatever type you wish, cook and drained
  • Fry 2 onions (depends on how much you like small or large)
  • Fry the onions in butter, this depends on how much onions you are using.
  • I use extra large onion and use 1 stick of butter.
  • While sauting onions.
  • Boil 2 1/2 pounds of potatoes, drain and mash adding a little salt & pepper and little little bit of milk.
  • Then add the onion mix to the potatoes.
  • In a 9 x13 pan greased
  • layer 1/2 noodles
  • layer mashed potatoe onion mix
  • layer rest of noodles
  • top noodles with american cheese.
  • Now, if all is hot as you put it together it will only need to bake about 35 minutes just until the cheese on top is melted.
  • If it is cold cover with foil some until heated then uncover this could take an hour or more from cold stage.
  • Serve with sour cream
  • I serve this as a side with Keilbasa or hungarian sausage or knockwurst or any german/polish/hungarian sausages.
  • I also serve baked sourkraut. I usually had suasages baked in the kraut.
  • Kraut should be drained placed in oiled pan with drained kraut.
  • I grate an apple
  • Pepper corns,
  • salt, some
  • bay leaves
  • Drop of sugar, I usually use brown sugar, not authentic german, I know but dont tell my parents!
  • Bake at 350 stirring often to brown, We add sausage to the top continue baking. You can add pork ribs anything. So good.

    Yes you can use any cheese. As I am Polish Russian first generation. Farmers dry cheese is what we use. And always add a bit of sharp flavor cheese as in sheeps milk. That would be for cheese periogis (casserole). This is pototo but yes you can forget the potato in the recipe and do the farmers cheese as I have done that. To potatoes we always add a bit of sharp. This recipe is not polish. YOu can add any cheese you want too. If anyone uses the dry cottage cheese or Farmers cheese. Add 2 egg yolks and still use butter and onion...but pour the butter onion mix on the noodle then the cheese.

    Farmers cheese (soft kind in a plastic tub) would be good in this recipe. This is the cheese many Polish people put in their perogies, not the cheddar that soem places use. Dry cottage cheese can be subsituted for it and gives a really good taste.

    Pierogi and potato pancakes and kielbasa and with sour cream, heaven on a plate. This looks too good to pass up. Never tried them with american cheese tho. Hmmm.
