“Bacon”, Carmelized Onions Potato Pierogis Bake

  • 1 Potato Pierogi recipe
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 slices Vegan Smart bacon slices, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup (3 ounces) Vegan cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, lower-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Vegan cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup sweet onions (like Vidalia)
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped seeded plum tomato
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Arrange the pierogies in an 11 x 7-inch glass baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cook bacon in a saucepan over medium heat until crisp; remove from pan. Set aside.  Carmelize onions by cooking them over low heat and covered, in 3 Tbsp of olive oil, stirring occasionally.  Should take about 15 mins.
  3. Meanwhile add garlic to “bacon drippings” in pan, and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add 1/3 cup cream cheese to pan, and cook for 1 minute or until cream cheese begins to melt, stirring frequently. Gradually add vegetable broth to pan, stirring with a whisk until smooth.
  4. Distribute carmelized onions over pierogis.
  5. Pour the cream cheese mixture evenly over pierogies. Top evenly with 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.
  6. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until bubbly and thoroughly heated. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with bacon, tomato, and pepper.
