Ingredients

Garnish:

  • fresh dill
  • light sour cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a casserole dish with non- stick cooking spray.
  • Chop the onions and cook in butter in microwave for 2 minutes.
  • Cut each perogy in half and place in the bottom of casserole dish.
  • Pour the cooked onion in butter over the perogies, then add the bacon bits.
  • Squeeze the liquid out of the sauerkraut  by placing it in a sieve and pushing the liquid out. Then chop into small pieces. Spread the sauerkraut over the perogies in the casserole dish.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together sour cream, hot mustard, eggs, dill and 1 cup of cheddar cheese (reserve ½ cup cheddar cheese). Mix thoroughly. 
  • Pour over perogies, then gently stir in. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese on top of casserole.
  • Cook in preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until egg is fluffy and no longer runny.
  • Return to oven, turn up to broil (500 degrees F) for 1-2 minutes longer until cheese bubbles and browns slightly. Watch it carefully, as light/low fat cheese can burn very quickly.
  • Remove from oven and serve warm.  Or make-ahead and refrigerate overnight and reheat in the morning.

Notes

*NOTE: you can substitute low fat or non fat greek yogurt for sour cream
**NOTE: avoid simulated bacon bits and go for the real (crumbled) bacon bits - you can buy bacon bits that taste like the real thing in most grocery stores
