Thank you so much for this recipe it is exactly like my Grandmothers "Baba" I opened a restaurant March of 2010 now the perogies are on going the menu as of next week. My grandmother has passed on years ago, the recipe was lost. I remembered the ingredients but not the amounts as I was doing a trial run of the Pierogies I was in tears because my grandmother was sitting on my sholders telling me what to do. In honnor of my Grandmother the restaurant is called Baba"s Kitchen. Stop on by !!!!!!!! Asheville North Carolina. Thank you so much for bringing back the fond memories of my Grandmother. Regards and Hugs Carol Meenan
This is a great recipe, like my great grandmother used to make. I would like to add that after boiling and dried they need to be fried in pork fat renderd from cut up fat back (not salt pork). after cooking the pieces of fat back skim the pieces out with slotted spoon, then in hot oil cook lots of garlic skim that out then fry a chopped onion in the same oil. now you are ready to fry the pierogies. the garlic and onion give the oil a flavor that it incorperated through the perogies. probably not the healthiest way but the way my great grandmother used to make, enjoy!
I have to say, a Pierogi was something I always thought would be one of those next to impossible little buggers to make. I personally do not like Pierogis but that's ok, my whole family loves them! I seen your recipe and the dough seemed easy enough so I figured I would try to make them. I did cheat. I bought a bag of the frozen Mashed Potatoes. It was a bag from Alexi company or something like that that cooks in the Micro for 10 min. I then added 2 large handfuls of store bought shredded cheddar cheese & black pepper to the potato mix & started stuffing them & boiling them. Well.. they came out fantastic! my Dad who goes crazy for Pierogi's then fried them up in butter and said they were Polish Restaurant quality. Thank you so much for sharing! I will be using my Kraut recipe next as a filling!
These pierogies are so awesome. We made them for the first time and they all look awesome and taste so delicious no matter if they are freshly cooked, fried or snacked out the fridge a few days later. We'll have pierogies very often from now on. Thank you for this recipe!!
Excellent recipe- was fantastic! I tweaked the flavors in the potato mixture a lot...otherwise did everything exact and the perogies were so yum. Served with Niman Ranch Apple Gouda sausage, bacon and green beans.
I made these for my boyfriend as an entree for dinner last week. He loves them! The recipe was so easy to follow. He wants me to make more for him! I think I will try other fillings in the future!
YUM! really good! lots of work, but the yeild was very large... and i froze some for later.
I think these were great! I had leftover cheese mashed potatoes i used instead. A great way to use up leftovers. My husband loved them as well! definitley be making these again, and the directions were very user friendly!! thanks!
