This creamy perogies dinner can be made with fresh perogies or frozen pierogies. This is an easy way to make an entire meal out of perogies ( though really, I have no problem doing that usually) with a new unique taste! I have updated this recipe from 2014 to include a homemade perogie recipe.

Perogies for Dinner

For my second post with Campbell’s, I tackled a recipe that I was really on the fence about. I knew that I was going to have to try it, but I have to be honest, my eyebrows were a bit raised over the salsa and cream of celery soup used in it. This is exactly the type of recipe that I need this time of year, easy, fast, and someone else developed it. Oh, that last part is SO true. I am a little brain-dead this time of year. I am so busy coming up with new Christmas baking ideas that I don’t have the time or the inclination to be messing around with new dinner ideas.

Add in the fact that I am hosting my dinner club this Saturday for a games and dinner night, well, I’m one busy little bird. I am baking up a storm this week getting ready for it. So this recipe was a welcome one and I have to admit, I liked the fact that you start with bacon.

The verdict? It turned out to be really delicious and that’s coming from a Ukrainian girl who is pretty darn serious about her perogies.

It was delicious enough that Mike ate it willingly and yes, I mean my husband, not one of the kids. Sometimes he’s the one that’s the picky pants in the family. I knew that my son would like it – and he scarfed back a plate at lunch – but I wasn’t so sure about Mike. My daughter has apparently sworn off perogies, something that I haven’t told her Grandmother about yet.

Eeek. Nana is going to find out at Christmas that The Rose isn’t eating her special, Nana-made perogies anymore. I have no idea why. She literally told me ” I’ve moved on to other things.”

Sassy much?

The only thing I changed was to add more spinach and I would actually add even more next time. It was a nice fresh taste addition to the dish and I would honestly use a whole bag since it shrinks into almost nothing by the time you were done.

 Perogie Making Tips & Tricks

  • Don’t overcook the perogies! They will fall apart in the sauce! Follow the directions on the box or the package for cooking them – or Baba’s instructions.
  • You can choose any flavor of perogy filling that you want, almost everything ( except for sweet) goes with these!
  • To keep the sodium low in the sauce for the creamy perogies dinner, make sure to use a no-salt-added broth AND get a lower sodium bacon for sure if it’s a concern.

Happy Cooking everyone!

  • Cook bacon until crisp at medium heat in large skillet. Drain bacon on paper towel; remove all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) fat from skillet.
  • Add onion, garlic and black pepper to skillet; cook and stir until onions are translucent – about 3 minutes. Return bacon to pan.

  • Add the soup, broth and salsa and stir to combine and let simmer for 10 minutes

  • Garnish with sour cream and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

You do not want to use pre-cooked perogies in this or they will fall apart! You brown them, then simmer them in the sauce which will cook them!
The recipe nutritional values are for the sauce only as the perogie nutritional values will vary from homemade to frozen.

    A nice change to usual dinner.
    Added mushrooms though 🤤5 stars

  2. Cmininni says

    I was a looking for something different to do do with my pierogies than the same ol’ same ol’, and I had bacon to use up. I didn’t want to glob the meal with cheese like in other recipes I saw, so I thought I’d give this recipe a try. It’s ok. We’ll eat it, but I won’t be making it again.3 stars

    • cmininni says

      Tomato salsa, like in chips and salsa, or to top Mexican dishes, etc. it has a variety of uses. It comes in all different flavors, but the basic salsa has tomatoes, onions, cilantro, cumin, lime juice, and maybe some jalapeño &/or sugar.

  3. Anonymous says

    Eh, It was too saucy for me personally but to each their own. The perogi‘s came out kind of hard after following the recipe by the book. Definitely won’t be making this again.

  4. Tom says

    Yum! I spread the hot perogies on my husbands bare chest and drizzled a hot cream of mushroom into his belly button! I loved them, he loved them, and so did the kids!

  5. Jen says

    I made a few adjustments to this recipe, but following the premise it was so good! My family ate every bit and asked for more!5 stars

    Fantastic recipe, very rich. Husband is from Ukraine & he said this is a definite make again dinner!5 stars

  7. Kay says

    Looks delicious, but Yikes! Is there really 3,491 mg of sodium in this? Please tell me that’s a typo. I’d like to try this one, but that’s over my limit.

  8. Cathy Schuetze says

    One of my fondest memories of my Ukrainian mother in law was her awesome family dinners which always included perogies and cabbage rolls.
    She grew up on a farm just outside of Dauphin. Her maiden name was Ginger’s. I’m just telling you that because sometimes this is such a small world and you might have heard the name – there were 13 Gingera children.
    My daughter loves your cookbook (found a copy at our local library) and is probably going to get her own copy so she can start at the first recipe and work her way through the book.5 stars

    • Cathy Schuetze says

      Sorry about that, auto correct struck again… My mother in law’s maiden name was Gingera not Ginger’s

  9. Marie says

    Looks delicious!! Just a couple of questions. Can you double the recipe??? and….I don’t where it says to put the perogies in the skillet frozen or do you cook them first in boiling water before adding them to the pan?? Thanks.5 stars

  14. Brian Albright says

    Love perogies! Hate celery! Would another creamy soup work?

    5 stars

    • The Kitchen Magpie says

      I’d think cream of chicken or the cheese soup would be goood!

      5 stars

  15. Sandra Dmc says

    Since there are so many varieties of perogi. Which did you use? The onion ones I think would be good

    5 stars

  16. Shelley Jones says

    I had Ichiban for lunch today and ignored the kale salad. I can’t judge anyone.
