    KissKiss's Note:

    I use Costco's brand (Santarelli's) to make this recipe. The box has 96 oz. split into two bags. I use about half a bag (24 oz). Whatever brand you buy, just make sure the pierogies have a thick pasta shell. If they're too thin, they can tear during the pan-frying. Also, it's good to use a soft spatula (one that can withstand high heat) to turn the pierogies over.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 24 ounces frozen pierogies stuffed with potato and white cheddar cheese (see note above for brand recommendation)
    • water
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 large onion, sliced thick
    • salt and pepper, to taste (or Paula Deen's House Seasonsing, recipe on Zaar)


    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add pierogies. Cook 4-5 minutes or until they float the top, drain.
    2. 2
      In a large NON-STICK fry pan, melt the butter with the olive oil. Add onion and drained pierogies and season to taste with salt and pepper or House Seasoning.
    3. 3
      Cook over high heat until the onion is soft and browned and pierogies are nicely browned. The pasta shell will get a little crunchy - it's delish!
    4. 4
      Serve with a dollop of sour cream.

      Very good, just the way I like my pierogies, nice and crispy! I usually use more onion. Sometimes use bacon, cabbage, etc.

      This is the same way that I cook pierogies and potato and cheese are our favorite. I use an electric skillet for frying, I think it is easier to control the temp. Thank you for posting this great recipe.
