It is Grey Cup Sunday!
It is that one Sunday of the year where all the crazy Canadians bundle up to sit outside and watch two teams throw a football back and forth to one another. Silly if you ask me!
I would much rather be watching the game around a TV, with the fireplace on and all of the yummy homemade snacks. So that is what we are doing! We are hosting a Grey Cup party with some friends and other family members. Go (insert team name here)! We are all Saskatchewan Roughriders fans and are still butthurt that they didn’t make it in to the finals.
What is on the menu?
- Veggie Trays with Hummus & Artichoke Dip
- Chips and Dip
- Hawkins Cheezies
- Cheese and Crackers
- Mandarin Orange & Green Salad
- Perogie Casserole
- Warm Glazed Ham
Simple ingredients but quality food for sure! And the thing is with my parents (well my dad in particular), when they throw a party, there is always an over-abundance of food. No one will ever go hungry!
If you ask me, perogie casserole is probably one of the best things on the planet! It is so good that I feel like I need to share the recipe. You should definitely make it within the next day or so to experience the goodness!
My mom has had this recipe in her recipe book forever. I just asked where she got the recipe but she couldn’t remember (sorry to the person out there for this fabulous casserole, I wish I could give you credit!).
- 1 kg of perogies (any variety)
- One white onion
- 1 tbsp of butter
- 1 can of mushroom soup
- 1/8 cup of milk
- 1/2 cup of sour cream
- 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
- Preheat the oven to 325F.
- Angle the perogies in a shallow roaster pan.
- Finely chop the onion.
- In a frying pan, add 1 tbsp of butter and saute the chopped onion.
- Take the onions off of the stove and put them into a mixing bowl.
- In the bowl with the onions, mix the mushroom soup, milk, sour cream and half of the grated cheddar cheese.
- Pour the entire mixture over the perogies.
- Sprinkle the other half of the grated cheddar cheese over the top of the perogies.
- Bake in the oven for one hour.
So for your next party when you have lots of friends and/or family around, make sure to make this perogie casserole. I know it will be a hit for everyone!
