Slap Some Pierogis And Sausage Into The Slow Cooker For A Comforting Casserole

Need a delicious dish to pass at a potluck? You’ve found one!

For years, I’ve been eating pierogis, sausage, saurkraut, and boiled potatoes. Being brought up in a German/Polish/Hungarian household, my mother loved making dishes that includes the aforementioned items. As an adult, I often feed my family the same things. I like to change things up a bit on occasion and surprise them with a new recipe. When I saw this pierogi and kielbasa casserole recipe I was instantly excited.

The dish looked super easy to prepare as it is cooked in the Crock Pot. There wasn’t much hassle making this yummy meal and it came out tasting just as expected: amazing!




Quick Tip: This is the perfect dish to pass at a potluck supper.


We don’t get Mrs. T’s pierogies here in Saskatchewan. Can you tell me the package size of the boxes, and are they frozen? Do I need to thaw them prior to putting them in the slow cooker?

I find the Co-op ones work great so do the Superstore no names ones. Any brand will so. I would go with the small packages and adjust the stock accordingly.

I made it yesterday. My came out to mushy. I don’t think I’m going to make it again. I wonder how it would come out if you bake it in the oven.

I was concerned at first. I followed directions. Throw everything in crock pot. When I checked on it it wasn’t mixed real well. I stirred it around to mix cheese and stuff and broke a few of the pierogis. After I mixed and let cook longer the sauce got creamy. Doesn’t look very pretty like the pic but has good flavor.

Awww mannnn just put it in the crockpot and now reading feedback! Just called husband and told him to eat before he comes home. Hahaha live and learn

I was right. He should have eaten before coming home. I have never in my 55 years of cooking had something as bad as this. I had PB&J. Hubby filled his plate, although I warned him. He are every bite cuz he believes if I went to the trouble of making it, he could eat it. He did, but ask that I NEVER make it again. Sooooo BAD ☹️

I am concerned now after reading the comments. I also wish I had read them before purchasing the ingredients. I will thicken some of the broth with a roux, then add the cream cheese until it melts like a gravy. And plan to fry the sausage before adding to release the extra grease onto paper towels. Might bake in oven rather than slow cooker. My store didn’t have mini pierogies but I wish they did! Fingers crossed.

Pierogies should never be cooked in a crockpot lol Boil them for a few minutes, then put them in a skillet with butter and brown them but never in the crockpot….

I will never make this again. The perogies all ended up stuck together. I didnt use my slow cooker. It was big enough. Cause i was cooking for my big family. I used frying pans then put the food into a big electric cooker i have. Ugh… the kids ate it. But i will not make it again. It sure didnt kook like the picture or anything close…
