This is adapted (easily) from DinnerPlanner.org:

PIEROGIE CASSEROLE - PITTSBURGH STYLE

INGREDIENTS:

10 Tinkyada lasagna noodles cooked (If you can't find them, use any gluten-free small pasta, like shells or macaroni. If absolutely desperate, use rice!)

1 (24 oz) package of Simply Potatoes

8 oz. sour cream

1 tablespoon chives

2 1/2 cups cheddar cheese

1 large white onion - chopped

1 stick butter

Salt & Pepper

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Melt stick of butter and slowly saute onions careful not to burn. Lightly salt & pepper onion mixture.

Microwave potatoes according to directions.

Lightly coat the bottom of your lasagna pan with butter.

Place 5 noodles on bottom of lasagna pan overlapping each other.

Spread half of the onion & butter mixture over noodles.

Add mashed potatoes - spreading across top of the noodles with a spatula, salt & pepper.

Mix sour cream & chives, spread this layer on top of potato layer covering all of the potatoes.

Sprinkle cheese on top of the sour cream mixture.

Add the remaining 5 lasagna noodles same as the bottom layer.

Spread the rest of the onion & butter on top of the noodles. Sprinkle remaining cheese over noodles.

Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Let stand for about 10 minutes before cutting.

Go Steelers!

MMMmmm, that sounds so great!! I think I'll make it for the rest of us since Carleigh can't have the dairy. I'll make her mashed potatoes with Vance's DariFree.

It's times like this I really wish I could eat dairy...... :rolleyes:

It's times like this I gain 10 lbs just reading a recipe. :blink: I eat a lot of avocado in place of cheese, I can eat cheese but not too much of it.

I wonder if coconut milk with lemon juice could be substituted for the sour cream, and olive oil for the butter ? That still leaves the problem of the cheese topping. It might taste good topped with guacamole but it's going to look funny.

This sounds so great. My husband grew up eating pierogies so he will love this too. What are Simply Potatoes (brand)?

Simply Potatoes is a brand of pre-fab potatoes (http://www.simplypotatoes.com/). I'm assuming that the recipe means mashed potatoes; I'm planning to use Potato Buds, and yes, I think coconut milk or any dairy-free milk would be fine. Dairy-free sour cream, too.

Jerseyangel, I was wondering if using a risotto-type rice with chicken broth, soy milk, soy sour cream or soy cream cheese, and turmeric or curry for coloring would be a decent substitute for the cheese? If you cooked the rice past the al dente stage, so it would be sort of melty?

I think the guacamole sounds good, too, if a little green. Or maybe a white bean dip with lots of garlic?

And the non-dairy cheese substitutes have gotten a lot better in the last 10 years. We have Vegan-rella--I don't know how well it melts, but the taste isn't bad at all (we are currently experimenting with dairy-free for oldest son, who may have some neuro issues connected with dairy, but not sure).

Be sure to read labels--most of them seem to have casein, which makes no sense whatsoever in a supposedly non-dairy cheese.

I just made this. I did not have the potatoes listed but got online and found out what they were and appx how many servings in a container. I used instant potatoes as a substitute. The only thing I would change is add more onion. I love onions! It turned out great. Nobody else in the family would eat it so I brought it to work for the weekend. I'll have supper all three nights and some to share! I grew up in northwestern PA and ate alot of pierogies growing up.

I made his last week and it is delicious. I used real mashed potatoes. I too would add more onions next time. My family asked me to be sure to make it again. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet.
