Frozen potato pierogies go gourmet with a savory homemade sauce of golden sauteed onions, crunchy cabbage and tart Granny Smith apples. It has been triple tested at the Goodhousekeeping Research Institute 09/2008 issue. Seems like I always find good recipes at the Dr's. office, then I have to ask them to copy it for me - in between hello's and goodbye's. It sounds really good!!! Haven't tried it as yet - hope to soon.
