Crock Pot Sausage Pierogi Casserole recipe is a delicious and comforting dish made with chicken sausage and a creamy cheese sauce. Great for potlucks or a weeknight dinner that cooks right in the slow cooker!

Oh man, do I have the best recipe for you today or what. This is the comfort food of all comfort foods right here! It seems very appropriate that I’m writing about a warm, rich, comforting dish on one of the snowiest days we have had all month. Yup, a “trace to a couple inches” of snow that was in the forecast turned into…..a lot more. Eating light just seems wrong on a day like today! Crock Pot Sausage Pierogi Casserole, however, seems so right.

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!

I used Zweigle’s chicken sausage in this delicious Crock Pot Sausage Pierogi Casserole. Gotta give love to my favorite brand of hot dogs, chicken sausage, and soo much more. Oh, and lucky for me that they are a local brand! Their all natural, gluten-free chicken sausage is the tastiest in the land and their quality is just SO great. Anytime I am trying out a recipe with any type of sausage, I swap Zweigle’s chicken sausage in. It really is the perfect alternative to pork or beef sausage and much more health-conscious! They sell 5 different varieties: Spinach and Feta, Italian, Chorizo, Buffalo Style, Lime Chipotle. Really, ANY of those would work perfectly in this recipe. Feel free to get creative!

This dish is super easy to make but does take a little bit of prep. I promise you it’s worth it! I like to brown the sausage in a pan before adding it to the crock pot so it kicks the flavor up a notch. Also melting the cream cheese and chicken stock together makes the cheesy sauce much creamier while it cooks. You can use any flavor of pierogies that your family prefers!

Crock Pot Sausage Pierogi Casserole recipe is comfort food made with sausage & creamy cheese sauce. Great slow cooker meal for potlucks or weeknight dinner!
  • 1 (64 oz.) bag frozen pierogies (any flavor)
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 12 oz (4 links) Zweigle's chicken sausage, any flavor, sliced thin

  1. Heat a large skilletover medium-high heat with a couple tablespoons of olive oil.
  2. Add the sausage slices and cook until sausage is slightly browned on both sides.
  3. Add minced garlic and cook briefly - just until fragrant, being careful not to burn (this is a quick process).
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. In a saucepan on medium-high heat, warm the chicken stock and cream cheese together until the cream cheese has fully melted (may need to break it up as best you can with a spoon or whisk).

    We eat pierogies at least once a month, if not more! I usually saute and then bake them in the oven. I love that yours is done in the crockpot – what a great way to save time! I bet this will be a hit with my family. 🙂

    Trying tonight but only using 16 or so pierogi since it’s just me. Never tried them before. Using 8 each of the onion and cheddar.

    Do you add the shredded cheese with the cream cheese/stock? Or at the end?

      I add the cheese on top right after adding the stock/cream cheese. I have a video of me making it included in the post of that helps!
