There are only a few simple ingredients in this casserole. The most exotic ingredient is pierogies. Have you ever had pierogies? Pierogies are potato dumplings. Dough filled with potatoes and sometimes cheese. I find the pierogies in the freezer section near the potatoes. The only brand I’ve really seen is Mrs. T’s. I used the classic cheddar pierogies in this casserole since cheddar is a component of “crack” (cheddar, bacon and ranch).

To make the casserole simply toss together the pierogies, Alfredo sauce, chicken, bacon, Ranch dressing mix, and cheddar cheese. Spread the mixture into a baking dish and bake. You can assemble this casserole ahead of time and refrigerate or even freeze for later. To bake after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed below.

  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • ¾ cup cooked chopped bacon
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp Ranch dressing mix
  • cups shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Lightly spray a 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

  • Pour pierogies into prepared pan. Top with remaining cheddar cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 45 minutes.

Notes:

Can use turkey bacon instead of regular pork bacon.
3/4 cup of bacon is approximately 3/4 of a pound raw bacon.

I used rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken.
I used Mrs. T’s Frozen Pierogies – they are in the freezer section near the frozen potatoes.

  1. This recipe is absolutely amazing and was a big hit in our house.
    I didn’t have Ranch dressing mix so I used regular ranch.

  2. If I don’t have ranch seasoning could I substitute ranch dressing? I think the pierogies I have are minis, but i’m sure that’s ok.

  3. I halfed the recipe because there is only three of us but used the whole amount of bacon. It was so delicious. I will definitely make this again.

  4. Would this work with the pierogies frozen? Cause I totally overlooked thawed and just put them in the oven frozen. Oops.
