Yes, this family favorite recipe calls for kielbasa. To be completely honest with you I have also used crumbled cooked bacon, leftover cooked sausage, ham, chicken, or just vegetables a time or two. That’s one of the reasons this is such a go-to recipe that we just love. Add in your favorite veggies to make it a complete meal. Broccoli and snap peas are our favorite add-ins, but really anything will work nicely. A few reviewers even said they added sour kraut too. That might be an interesting twist.

  • 1 pound kielbasa – sliced (or other cooked meat mentioned above)

Serve with a fresh green salad and crusty bread.

After many comments and reviews, a few have stated that the cream cheese was lumpy even after cooking for the required time. Even though this will not change the flavor any, you may not want lumps. Another option would be to warm the cream cheese and chicken broth together in a small saucepan just until the cream cheese is melted. Then combine the ingredients together in your crockpot.

This Crockpot Pierogi Casserole is just that, a casserole. There will not be much liquid left after it is fully cooked. The pierogis are like tiny little sponges, soaking up that delicious chicken broth until there is none left. Something we absolutely love around our house. If you are not a fan of thick and rich dishes, you might want to try one of our yummy Soup Recipes instead.

You will be able to feed 6 – 8 people … or 3 – 4 hungry teenage boys! It makes A LOT of food. You could reduce the recipe by using 2 boxes of pierogies, 2 – 3 cups broth, 1/2 cup shredded cheese and 4 oz. cream cheese. adjust your ad-ins to suit your taste. There really is no  exact science here, it’s a recipe that was created on a whim with what we had on hand and this is what works well for our busy household.

I am not claiming to be a chef or an expert by any means. Just a busy mom trying to feed her hungry family on a budget. If you can relate and give this yummy delicious recipe a try, I would love to hear how this goes over in your home. Or how you make it your own with different ingredients.
