Perogie Mac & Cheese with Bacon!

Oh my goodness, this is amazing! Cheddar Potato Perogies baked up like Mac & Cheese with Crispy Bacon on top! You can thank me later!

2 bags of Mrs. Smith Cheddar Potato Frozen Perogies
3 Tablespoons Butter
3 Heaping Tablespoons of Flour
Dash of Red Pepper
1 Teaspoon Paprika + more to sprinkle on top
1 Tablespoon Parsley +more for on top
4 Cups Whole Milk
4 Cups  Shredded Cheddar Cheese, I used a blend of Colby - Jack
1 Pound Bacon Cooked Crisp & Crumbled. I did mine in the microwave between thick layers of paper towel. It took 7 minutes to cook crisp but check yours at 5 minutes as microwaves vary!

Cook Perogies according to package & drain. In the pot you cooked the Perogies, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour to make a smooth paste, cook over medium heat. Now whisk in the milk, cook & stir until thick bubbling. Now stir in 3 cups of the cheese! Stir & cook until cheese is melted. In a deep glass casserole dish, sprayed with cooking spray or buttered, spoon in about 1/4 cup of the cheese sauce. Now lay in one layer deep of the cooked Perogies. Continue in layers until all is used. Spoon cheese sauce over the top for the last layer. Now cook for 40 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven uncovered. When the 40 minutes is up pull the casserole out & sprinkle the last cup of cheese evenly over the top. Now sprinkle the bacon over that! Top with a sprinkle each of parsley & paprika! Put back in the oven for 15 more minutes! This makes 6 hearty portions!
