A fabulous recipe for comfort food! I usually make this on New Years Eve. The slow cooker is not necessary, if you need a quick meal...but using the slow cooker does marry all the flavors together.
1 lb bacon
1 head of cabbage, coarsely chopped
1 onion, chopped
4 boxes of 16.9 oz packages of frozen pierogies
Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Cut the bacon into bite-sized pieces; set aside.
Retain the bacon drippings and add the cabbage and onion to the pan. Cook and stir until the cabbage is tender, about 20 minutes.
Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the pierogies and return to a boil. Cook until the pierogies float to the top, about 5 minutes; drain.
Gently combine the pierogies, cabbage and bacon; place into the slower cooker. Cook on low for 3 hours prior to serving.
