1 package (16 oz) frozen potato and cheese pierogies
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced cooked bacon or vegetarian bacon alternative
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional toppings: chopped green onions, additional sour cream, hot sauce

Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter and set aside.
Prepare the Pierogies: If using frozen pierogies, cook them according to the package instructions until they are just tender. Drain and set aside.
Sauté the Onions and Garlic: In a large skillet, melt the butter or heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, and sauté until the onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
Assemble the Casserole: Arrange the cooked pierogies in the prepared baking dish in a single layer. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheddar cheese over the pierogies, followed by the sautéed onions and garlic, and diced cooked bacon or vegetarian alternative.
Add Sour Cream Mixture: In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, chopped chives, salt, and pepper. Spoon the sour cream mixture evenly over the pierogies and other ingredients in the baking dish.
Bake the Casserole: Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove the foil, sprinkle the remaining shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the casserole, and return it to the oven. Bake uncovered for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve: Once the casserole is cooked through and the cheese is golden brown, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Garnish with chopped green onions, additional sour cream, and hot sauce if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
