This easy dinner recipe puts a spin on popular bacon cheeseburger pasta dishes by substituting pierogies for pasta.
Pierogies are delicious dumplings filled with mashed potatoes that can be made from scratch or found in the frozen section of your grocery store.
For this dish I used potato bacon pierogies.
To make my Bacon Cheeseburger Pierogies I started by browning some ground beef with some diced onions for flavour.
While the beef was cooking I also boiled my pierogies.
When the pierogies were cooked I drained them and set them aside.
Once the ground beef was nicely browned I added a brick of cream cheese to the pot along with some ketchup and real bacon bits, and stirred until the cream cheese was fully melted.
Then I added some milk and brought the mixture to a boil.
To the boiling sauce I added some cornstarch dissolved in water and stirred until the sauce thickened.
Once the sauce started to thicken I removed it from the heat and added the pierogies to the sauce pot along with some grated cheddar cheese and chopped green onions.
I stirred the pierogies gently until they were fully coated in sauce being careful not to break them open.
These pierogies are a fun change from pasta dishes.
The soft pockets of mashed potatoes loaded with ground beef, bacon and cheesy sauce will delight your whole family.
