  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the potatoes in a large pot with water to cover over high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender. Remove from heat, drain, then combine with the milk and 6 tablespoons of butter, mash and set aside.
  3. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute the bacon, onion and garlic in the butter for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the bacon is fully cooked.
  4. Cook the lasagna noodles according to package directions and cool under running water.
  5. Place 1/2 of the mashed potatoes into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top this with 1/3 of the cheese, followed by a layer of lasagna noodles. Repeat this with the remaining potatoes, another 1/3 of the cheese and a layer of noodles. Then arrange the bacon, onion and garlic over the noodles, then another layer of noodles, and finally top all with the remaining cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve with sour cream and chopped fresh chives.

Just ok. I probably will not make again; not enough taste to justify the high calorie to low nutrient ratio. I made according to directions, except I added a layer of whole wheat noodles as th...

I changed the method for this recipe quite a bit, so I hesitate to review it. I can't resist though because it was so good! Here's how I made it. First I doubled the recipe, but still used a 9x1...

Very good! I made this as a side dish for my Super Bowl party (GO STEELERS). I didn't follow the exact directions of the recipe. I folded the bacon, onion and garlic combination into the mashed ...

My family loved this. I usually spend hours in the kitchen making pierogis with my mom and this was a perfect substitute. It became my kids favorite in minutes and they wanted more. I blend t...

This is a great recipe. I cheated and used instant potatoes and substituted shredded marble for the cheddar so the taste wouldn't be quite as sharp. I baked it for 20 minutes covered with alumin...

We loved this recipe. It was easy to make and had all the flavor of the labor intesne pierogi. We also added a layer of sauerkraut.

I have to admit, I was a little weary of trying this recipe...but it really turned out really good. I added mushrooms and topped it with sour cream. Hubby says he would like to have it again...

Nice dish and loved by my family. After reading the other reviews I decided to make a cheese sauce for the top of the casserole to eliminate the problem of the noodles drying out. I simply made ...

I made this pretty much as written except to cook a whole pound of bacon and put half of it right on in the mashed potatoes. Also, I didn't brown the bacon in butter because, after all, it is b...
