Pirogi Casserole

So you want to know what pirogi casserole is? I would like to take full credit for this recipe, but it came via ONE and the Northeast country. Of course, I did not follow her directions or specific ingredients, so she is absolved from all blame if you don't like it. BUT, aside from the name, everything about this dish is wonderful. It is a real tummy warmer!

Pirogi Casserole
Spray a 9x13 inch pan with Crisco to grease.

1 large yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup (one stick) butter

Cook onion in butter until soft and slightly brown. Set aside.

I use microwave bacon for this because it is so quick. Feel free to fry your own.

8 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled

Cook Steam N' Mash potatoes in microwave for 10 minutes per bag.
2 bags Ore Ida Steam N' Mash
1 1/3 cups milk
1/2 cup (one stick) butter
1 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste

Whip the contents of both bags of potatoes with the milk, butter and sour cream.

6 Barilla (flat) lasagna noodles (The kind you don't need to pre-boil.)
12 slices of extra thin Swiss cheese (sandwich size)

Lay three of the noodles on the bottom of the 9x13 inch pan. Top with half the mashed potatoes. Sprinkle potatoes with half the bacon. Top with a layer of Swiss slices and cover the cheese with half the onions and butter. Add another layer of noodles, potatoes, bacon, Swiss and onions. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
