How Do I Make Pierogi Casserole?
Trust me when I say this recipe is foolproof- all you have to do is layer, layer, layer!

- Add half of the sliced kielbasa on top. Add half of your scallions on top of the kielbasa and half of the Colby jack cheese on top of the scallions. Repeat this step one more time.
- Spray a piece of aluminum foil with cooking spray and cover the baking dish with it, greased side down. Bake the casserole for 20 minutes before removing the aluminum foil and cooking for 20 more minutes or until bubbly. Serve and enjoy!

Frozen peppers and onions sprinkled into this would be great!
The greased foil is to prevent the cheese from sticking to the foil.
Andouille sausage would be a great substitute!
