This was decent. I'm Polish, so I grew up eating pierogis, and I've gotten so sick of them. This sounded like an interesting twist on regular pierogis, and all in all it's not a bad side dish. Next time I might skip the tomatoes though, they add too much acidity and Poles would never serve pierogies with tomatoes. The mushrooms and onions are a traditional topping though. My parents also liked chopped bacon on theirs as well, and I might try using that next time. This can also easily be served as a main dish if you use meat pierogis, which is nice.
This is fantastic!! I am always looking for new ways to use pierogis, but I may never have them any other way again. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
very good melted some cheese on top 5 stars
