Kraft Kitchen Tips


    Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favourite Kraft Calorie-Wise Dressing.


    Peel 2 lb./900 g (about 4) baking potatoes; add to large saucepan of boiling water. Cook 20 to 25 min. or until tender. Drain potatoes, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Return potatoes to pan; mash until smooth. For extra creamy potatoes, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water to the potatoes when mashing them.


    For a change of pace, substitute cottage cheese for the mashed potatoes.

Ratings & Reviews





I used to make a version using mashed or chopped cooked potatoes with a box of Kraft Dinner. Melted butter and chopped onion to drizzle on top. It was a great hit.


I found this casserole to be absolutely delicious...definitely a keeper! I used more potatoes, extra cheese and had sour cream on the side (I also used some potato water to thin them a little)Wonderful!


didn't find it tasty. kids didn't like it, so won't make it again.


My family loved loved loved this casserole! Will definately made again! Very Yummy


I didn't purchase the right kind of lasagna noodles so they werent fully cooked but i did enjoy the recipe :) It was quick and easy!


I tried this tonight for supper and everyone loved it. I added some sour cream to the potatoes and it added a lot of flavor. I would make this again but it is very heavy so you don't need much.



Great recipe and a nice change. VERY heavy though. Served with sour cream. Made the mashed potatoes really moist to make them easier to spread and so they didn't try out when baking. Might had some sauteed onions next time to add more flavour. All in all, great idea. Freezes well too.


I made this after receiving my What's Cooking magazine. Absolutely love it and have made it several times. It has made it's way into my "Favourite Recipes" book. It's great as leftovers as well. I cheat when I'm in a hurry and use the flavoured instant potatoes and it's ready in no time. What a great way to enjoy the pierogi taste without the fuss!!


good recipe, definitly a once in a while meal as its not very healthly!


My kids loved this recipe! They like it served with sour cream. I've made it twice now. The only change I made was increase the amount of mashed potatoes and I used half a block of regular cream cheese instead of the herb and garlic.


In smaller portion, this is really good as a side dish


Absolutely everyone I've made it for loves this recipe and asks for it


Our picky eater is cautious about new recipes, but fell in love with this one. It is a keeper for sure.




This recipe is a favorite in my house, the kids love it


This is a really good recipe I would add twice the amount of potatoes


A quick and easy recipe that tastes delicious.


This recipe is so good and tasty. I added more cream cheese than the recipe states and added some of the potato cooking water to the potatoes to make them creamier and thinner. My 10 yr old had 2 helpings.


So easy to make and so good. My daughter loved it!


I found the potatoes hard to spread and very thick. Next time I would double the amount of potatoes and cheese and do the full container of philly. And it was even better day 2 for leftovers. Made great lunches and everyone kept tasting my lunch and left me none! I would do this again for sure!!!


made this for supper tonight everybody loved it will definetly make this again


I have made homemade perogies and this has the same taste and texture of homemade. Very good and will make again, actually making it for Easter as a side dish!!!


My 11 year old helped me make this one! It was a big hit in our house, and a serious step up from frozen pierogis! LOL I've never made real pierogis before, but I will definitely make this recipe again, although I would make more mashed potatoes than was called for, and I will probably add some farmer sausage or roquewurst for extra flavour.


needed more mashed potatoes Served with farmer sausages


Easy to make. Yummy, with enough changes to be a little different. Will make again. Thank you.


I found it rather bland. In fact it was much better when served with sour cream and salsa. Definitely not enough flavour as is. i would make it again but would add in extras to kick it up a notch.


Of course, I used fully cooked salt-reduced bacon that I microwaved then crumbled instead of the bacon bits and I omitted the green onions. It is a nice change from regular potatoes.


I think I found a new family favorite comfort food! Best part is recipe is much less work than how I make my pierogi's! I was skeptical about the recipe, but my son asked me to make it, so I thought I would give it a whirl. This recipe tasted just as good if not better than the real deal! I think next time I may try adding to the topping some sauted onions as we enjoy our pierogi's with sauted onions/bacon on the side. This would also make an excellent potluck dish! People will rave!




My fiancée and I loved this recipe. He loved it so much, he wants me to make it for our next family gathering.


This is very delicious!!! Will make again.


Very good!!!


I couldn't get enough! Loved it!


It was good but a little bland. It really would have worked better as a side dish than an actual meal.


This is a delicious recipe. My family was fighting over who got the leftovers for lunch the next day. This recipe is a keeper.


I made this recipe today my kids just loved it.


Absolutely tasty!Make sure mashed potatoes are moist for they will spread easier. Use the potato water as suggested in the tips. Will become a family favourite!


Just made this for the first time. It appeared that there wasn't enough potatoes when I put it together, but after trying it, it was just right. Also used real bacon and some extra cheese. Only problem? With 2 adults and 2 teens....no leftovers! Will make a double batch next time for sure :)



This is my daughter's favourite casserole and she requests it every time she visits. I have been making it for over 20 years and my family loves it. I add more seasonings , extra bacon and pour melted butter over the top before baking. Can really never have enough bacon or cheese. This freezes well and can be baked at a future date once completely thawed.
