Have You Tried Perogies? They’re Polish Pockets of Pure Love!

In Do-it-Yourself on March 13, 2014 at 7:55 pm

ImageI never hear of any of my friends talking about Perogies, but it’s something my mother used to make for me as a kid, just the store-bought kind, and I’ve made it a few times as an adult. I’ve yet to make it by hand. A Polish acquaintance recently presented an entire package of Perogies that made me smile with glee, and that I will happily cook tonight!

What are Perogies? If you like Chinese dumplings and potstickers, and Italian raviolis and other stuffed pastas, you’ll love Perogies. What’s even better, you can find packages of Perogies in any grocery store in the freezer section for a comforting, but budget-friendly meal. Choose from a variety of cheese-filled or potato-onion-filled Perogies, and you can either just boil them or fry them up, have them plain, or dress them up.

It astounds me that more people don’t talk about or know about Perogies. Everybody loves them….even kids devour them.

I’ve found a good link that gives some ideas on various ways to top and/or make your Perogies into a one dish meal. Check these out if you’d like to venture into buying some pre-made Perogies and want ideas, or even better – if you’re wanting to make your own:

  1. Pierogies are one of my favorite foods! My mom made them from scratch when we were growing up, and while the store bought kind are fine they don’t
    hold a candle to homemade. The best pierogies here are made by Eastern European church ladies in large batches and sold during sales or church festivals.

  2. I can imagine that the homemade ones are awesome! If you have a good recipe you’d like to share, I’d love to make it at some point!

  3. I made this recipe recently with good results (though I did a straight potato and cheese filling, opting out of the sauerkraut)
