Pierogies Au Gratin

~Hi! to anyone visiting from Talented Terrace Girls...Welcome!~

So I've recently, in the last couple of months, fallen in love with the potatoe-filled-pasta goodness know as pierogies.  I've had them a couple of different ways, and they are just yummy.  So when I came across this recipe on Pinterest, I pinned it for future reference.  Well, the time came the other day for me to try this recipe.

mmmm...boy.....was it good.

and boy was it cheesey....and oh so delcious and comforting.

Pierogies Au Gratin
·         2 boxes of Potato & Cheese Pierogies {this made enough for my family of 5}
·         2 T Butter
·         2 T Flour
·         2 Cups of Milk
·         ½ tsp of Paprika
·         ½ tsp of Salt
·         ¼ tsp of Pepper
·         2 Cups of Shredded Cheese {I used a blend of mozzarella, provolone & cheddar cheese}
·         5 T of Bread Crumbs
·         5 T of Grated Parmesan Cheese
1.       Preheat oven to 400; take a baking sheet & place the frozen Pierogies on top.  Spray both side with a cooking spray.  Let them bake for 20 minutes, turning over half-way through.
2.       Meanwhile, in a sauce pan, melt the butter.  Mix in the flour and let it cook out for a little bit.  Using a whisk, slowly, little by little, pour in the Milk.
3.       When the Milk sauce is somewhat thick, add in the seasonings: Paprika, Salt & Pepper.
4.       Take off the heat.  With a spoon, slowly, at a half a cup at a time, stir in the cheese.
5.       Spray 5 ramekins {or one big pan}; place 5 to 6 pierogies into each ramekin.  Split the sauce between the five ramekins.
6.       Sprinkle a tablespoon of breadcrumbs & a tablespoon of parmesan cheese over the tops of each ramekin.
7.       Bake for 15 minutes at 375.  Let cool for at least 5 minutes.
8.       Enjoy!
