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 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, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
