Recipe: Bacon Ranch Pierogies

I made these up tonight and they were met with total approval at the dinner table.  You could reduce the ranch powder to taste.  I think I'll be making this again, for sure.

Bacon Ranch Pierogies

1-2 boxes frozen pierogies (potato & cheddar)
1/2 lbs bacon
1 onion
1 can fat free evaporated milk
1/4 c skim milk
1/2 packet ranch dressing mix

Preheat oven to 400 F.  Place pierogies on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Just started cooking..
Meanwhile, dice bacon and onion.  Fry in a pan over medium heat until bacon is crispy and onion is soft and browned.

Remove bacon and onion from the pan and place in a small bowl.  Deglaze the pan with the can of evaporated milk and the skim milk.  Using a whisk, make sure that all the bits stuck to the pan are incorporated into the sauce.

Stir in ranch seasoning packet to taste.  I used about half a packet.  Put the bacon and onion back in the sauce.

When the pierogies are done, turn the oven off.  Arrange the pierogies in a 9x13 baking pan and pour the sauce on top of them, distributing the bacon well over the top.  Put the pan back into the oven (with the heat off) and allow to sit for about 10-20 minutes for the sauce to soak into the pierogies a little.  Serve and enjoy.

Pin It!

  1. Yum! I love pierogies. Usually just serve them with bacon and sour cream. I will have to try them this way.
