1/2 Photos of Polish Pierogies (Potato Cheese)
These pierogies are much better than store bought in my opinion. They take some time to prepare, but they are worth it. Experiment with different fillings...I have tried everything from sauerkraut to tuna salad! If you have never had pierogies, they are pasta pockets usually filled with a potato filling. My grandmother was Polish, and we have always had pierogies at Easter, New Year's and just as a side dish throughout the year. I am always so surprised when people ask what they are because I have always known and just assumed everyone else did :)
