Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies and Perogie Casserole

Love Bacon Even More with Two Delicious Recipes! 

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies and Perogie Casserole

That’s right – bacon’s not just with eggs anymore! The beloved breakfast staple can do so much more. These two tasty recipes for Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies and a Perogie Casserole will reaffirm your love for bacon! Even my bacon-loving family was taken by surprise, especially with the Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Bacon Chocolate Chip CookiesI’ll admit it – my family and I were a bit dubious about adding bacon to tried-and-true classic, chocolate chip cookies. However, the slightly salty crispiness paired with the softness of the cookies won us all over. Sweet (but not too sweet), salty and crispy is a winning combination. How did I not think of this before?

Just imagine, homemade chocolate chip cookies taken to the next level! The (not so) secret ingredient is Great Value Thick Bacon. It can be a dangerous recipe, though – it’s so easy to make, you will want more!

You need:

Great Value Thick Bacon, Great Value All Purpose Flour, Great Value Baking Soda, Great Value Salt, Great Value Unsalted Butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, 2 Great Value Eggs, Great Value Vanilla Extract, and Great Value Milk Chocolate Chips.

 Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Didn’t I tell you that these Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies were so easy to make? It’s a fun activity to do with the kids; they’ll love to squish their hands in the dough. I find even now that my daughter loves to be the one to drop the cookie dough onto the pan. I think it’s her favourite part – besides mixing in the chocolate chips, that is!

It’s no surprise that bacon is a perfect addition to any meal, but it’s especially delicious in this Perogie Casserole! I love this recipe because it has bacon (of course), but also because it’s a meal that leaves you feeling satisfied. It’s one of those recipes that become your go-to comfort food, with thick-sliced bacon and cheesy potato perogies.

Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 8 strips Great Value Low-Sodium Bacon
  • 227g pkg cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp salt, divided
  • ½ tsp pepper, divided
  • ⅔ cup chicken broth
  • 1-¼ cups sour cream
  • ¼ cup chopped chives, divided
  • 1-½ cups Great Value Mozzarella-Cheddar Shredded Cheese, divided
  • 1 pkg (1 kg) Great Value Potato and Cheddar Perogies
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 375 F (190 C). Spray a 7” x 11” (2 L) casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 8 to 10 min. Drain on a paper towel lined plate. Once cooled, crumble or roughly chop. Set aside all but 2 Tbsp (30 ml) of bacon renderings from pan and increase heat to medium-high. Add mushrooms, onions, garlic, ¼ tsp (1 ml) each salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often until softened and beginning to brown, 4 to 5 min.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk chicken broth gradually into sour cream. Stir in 3 Tbsp (45 ml) chives, 1-¼ cups (310 ml) cheese, and remaining salt and pepper.
  4. In a large, microwave safe bowl, place pierogis and 2 Tbsp (30 ml) water. Cover with plastic wrap and with a fork or paring knife pierce plastic 5 or 6 times. Microwave on high until pierogis are soft, stirring halfway.
  5. Add sour cream and mushroom mixture to pierogis. Reserve 2 Tbsp (30 ml) of bacon renderings; add remaining into pierogis. Stir to combine. Spoon into casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake until mixture is bubbling at sides, 25 to 30 min. Remove foil and sprinkle with remaining cheese and crumbled bacon. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted, about 5 min. Sprinkle with reserved chives.
Notes
Kitchen Tip: This dish is perfect served with a green salad and fresh steamed veggies.

Kitchen Tip: Make this dish a day ahead by preparing the sauce, mushroom mixture and defrosting the perogies overnight in the fridge. Toss together last minute and bake an extra 10 to 15 minutes until warmed through and bubbling at the sides before sprinkling with reserved cheese and bacon and returning to the oven to melt the cheese.
