"Being Russian Mennonite, I grew up eating Verenike (Cheese Pockets). I recently was given this great recipe for the slow cooker so I don't have to spend the time to make the yummy goodness."

  • Ready In

  1. Mix together the cottage cheese, eggs, sour cream, evaporated milk, ham, salt, and pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Pour about half of the mixture into the bottom of a slow cooker. Layer the noodles over the cottage cheese mixture, breaking as needed to fit; top with the remaining cottage cheese mixture.
  2. Cook on Low until the noodles are cooked through, 5 to 6 hours.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • I always serve it with peas, a green salad, and crusty bread.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
