Serve it as a yummy side dish to almost any protein, or add polish sausage to make it a hearty meal.

Pierogi are traditionally delicious and rich little stuffed dumplings. Unfortunately, they’re also pretty unhealthy for any low-fat diet. So, if you want all the traditional flavors you love without the extra fat and calories, look no further than our Healthy Pierogi Casserole recipe. Since we don’t deep-fry these ingredients, you have less to worry about! We’ve layered sliced potatoes with a sauerkraut and reduced fat cheese mixture before finally topping it with more cheese! Garlic, onions, and spices add a depth of flavor to this slimmed-down dish.

When it’s ready, serve with a dollop of low-fat sour cream or Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of fresh green onions. Serve it as a yummy side dish to almost any protein, or add polish sausage to make it a hearty meal.
