Dumpling casserole with hard cheese in the oven

Do you have some frozen dumplings left in the freezer? Try preparing a new original dish from them – a tasty and satisfying casserole. In combination with fried onions, egg filling and hard cheese, the dish turns out to be very juicy and aromatic.

This is an excellent alternative to boiled dumplings. Both adults and children will appreciate this dumpling casserole. I recommend using small-sized dumplings for the recipe so that they have time to fully cook during the baking process. If you are using large semi-finished products, add an additional 100 ml of water to the egg wash.

The casserole can be prepared in one large baking dish or in portions.

Recipe for making dumpling casserole with hard cheese in the oven

Step-by-step instruction:

1. Grease the bottom and sides of a heat-resistant baking dish with vegetable oil. I used a baking dish measuring 23 by 15 cm. Place the frozen dumplings in one layer in the prepared pan.

2. Peel the onions and cut them into small cubes. Place the vegetables in a frying pan with heated vegetable oil. Stirring occasionally, sauté the onions over low heat until golden brown.

3. Evenly distribute the sautéed onions over the dumplings.

4. In a deep bowl, mix mayonnaise, 2 chicken eggs, salt and spices to taste.

5. Stir the mixture with a whisk until smooth.

6. Pour the egg filling with mayonnaise into the mold.

7. Grind the hard cheese on a grater with a large blade. Distribute the grated cheese evenly over the casserole.

8. Place the dumpling casserole in an oven preheated to 180 degrees for 30-40 minutes. During this time, the dumplings will be completely cooked, and the grated cheese on top will melt and brown.

9. Serve the aromatic dumpling casserole hot, garnished with fresh herbs. The dish can be supplemented with your favorite sauce or vegetable salad.
