Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the potatoes in a large pot with water to cover over high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender. Remove from heat, drain, then combine with the milk and 6 tablespoons of butter, mash and set aside.
  3. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute the bacon, onion and garlic in the butter for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the bacon is fully cooked.
  4. Cook the lasagna noodles according to package directions and cool under running water.
  5. Place 1/2 of the mashed potatoes into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top this with 1/3 of the cheese, followed by a layer of lasagna noodles. Repeat this with the remaining potatoes, another 1/3 of the cheese and a layer of noodles. Then arrange the bacon, onion and garlic over the noodles, then another layer of noodles, and finally top all with the remaining cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve with sour cream and chopped fresh chives.

Here is what I did (my mom makes a dish similar to this)and it came perfect, first of all double the potatoes (to 10) milk (to 1 cup) and butter (to 12 TBS) when the potatoes are mashed mix into it the cheese and bacon mixture. Then layer potato, noodle, potato, noodle, potato, noodle. Top with 1 onion sauteed in 1/2 cup butter and cover with aluminum foil. Then bake covered. The noodles will not get hard and the dish will disappear before your eyes!! ;-) Thanks for the recipe!

Just ok. I probably will not make again; not enough taste to justify the high calorie to low nutrient ratio. I made according to directions, except I added a layer of whole wheat noodles as the bottom layer to prevent sticking. I also used "real bacon pieces" instead of frying bacon (I added them to the onion garlic saute) and folded 1/2 of that mixture into the potatoes and used the other 1/2 on top (under the second 1/2 of the cheese). Maybe it will be better left over for lunch tomorrow. My husband liked it, so I'd probably actualy rate it about a 31/2. Thanks for something different!

I changed the method for this recipe quite a bit, so I hesitate to review it. I can't resist though because it was so good! Here's how I made it. First I doubled the recipe, but still used a 9x13 pan to make a thick casserole. I mixed the cheese in with the hot mashed potatoes to make a filling more like what I am used to in a pirogi. For the assembly, I layered 1/4 of the mashed potatoes, then a little bit of the onion mixture, and then noodles. Repeated four times, ending with onion mixture on top. Because I was making this for a number of meals, I lined the 9x13 pan with foil first, and after assembly, chilled it in the fridge. When chilled ans solid, I turned the whole casserole out of the pan, removed the foil, cut the casserole in quarters, wrapped each quarter for the freezer and froze them to bake later. Worked great! The only change I would make is to make twice the amount of onions this recipe calls for and perhaps omit or cut back on the bacon. Served with sauteed shredded cabbage and fruit salad.

Very good! I made this as a side dish for my Super Bowl party (GO STEELERS). I didn't follow the exact directions of the recipe. I folded the bacon, onion and garlic combination into the mashed potatoes. I then layered it with the cheddar cheese. I also added a layer of noodles to the bottom of the pan, because it didn't say to. I covered the pan with foil and baked it for 30 minutes so the noodles would not get hard. I then took the foil off the dish and baked it uncovered for an additional 15 minutes.

My family loved this. I usually spend hours in the kitchen making pierogis with my mom and this was a perfect substitute. It became my kids favorite in minutes and they wanted more. I blend the bacon, a few tsp of grease and cheese in with the potatoes instead of butter, salt & pepper, then layer with more cheese. Not so healthy w/grease, but so tasty! Like the real thing. So excited to have found it. Thanks!

This is a great recipe. I cheated and used instant potatoes and substituted shredded marble for the cheddar so the taste wouldn't be quite as sharp. I baked it for 20 minutes covered with aluminum foil (so the noodles wouldn't dry out) then removed the foil and baked for another 20 minutes. My family loved it and it even tasted great heated up in the microwave the next day! I definately am going to make this one again!

We loved this recipe. It was easy to make and had all the flavor of the labor intesne pierogi. We also added a layer of sauerkraut.

I have to admit, I was a little weary of trying this recipe...but it really turned out really good. I added mushrooms and topped it with sour cream. Hubby says he would like to have it again...
