Do you feel it? I sure do, FALL HAS ARRIVED!! Whoo hooo! Although I will say Michigan had a touch of Indian Summer as fall officially rolled in, the temps were unseasonably hot for the third week of September. The weather has now settled and it not only looks like fall it is beginning to feel like fall. My favorite season brings so many pleasant things: cooler temps, fall colors, apples, pumpkins, sweaters and hearty food perfect for cooler weather.

Fall also brings us our latest round of FREAKY FRIDAY! I just love this event with some of our blogging friends. We sign up, are assigned a fellow blogger, we choose a recipe from their site to make for our site and everyone reveals their creations at the same time…on FREAKY FRIDAY! A huge thanks to Michaela from An Affair from the Heart who organizes this event. We’ve been participating for quite some time and have really enjoyed getting to know our blogging buddies better and making some of their amazing recipes. This round is no different, let me tell you who I was assigned.

Deanna from Seduction in the Kitchen

Deanna is a creative cook who resides in Ohio. She’s quite helpful in blogging circles and I was fairly familiar with some of her recipes including: French Onion Rice and Creamsicle Margarita (DREAMY by the way) but ultimately the recipe that I chose from her repertoire boiled down to comfort food! Deanna is a football fan and had a fantastic tailgating recipe using pierogies on her site. (Be sure to check out all of her tasty dishes by clicking HERE!)

I thought it would be the perfect dish to make since football season is upon us and the upcoming holiday season is full of entertaining opportunities. Plus I could make it in my slow cooker and you know how I feel about that small kitchen appliance…swoon!

The recipe begins with frozen pierogies, I used cheese because I know my family enjoys that variety. To make this dish LOADED here comes the fun additions: creamy cheese sauce, bacon, smoked sausage & more cheese!

Yup, this is not a healthy dish by any means. It is meant to be enjoyed and trust me you will. Make it for game day feasting or a holiday spread. Bonus…it pairs nicely with some ice cold beer! Thank you Deanna for this delicious dish.

I used Cheddar Cheese Pierogies and Chicken Smoked Sausage. Use any type of shredded cheese you'd like, Muenster is a favorite at my house.
