    Manami's Note:

    F&W's Marcia Kiesel uses frozen pierogies in this rich but genius dish. I know, but it is OK once in a while! Comfort food at it's finest! UPDATE: 10/22/2009 have wanted to do this for a long time - so here goes: caramelize the onions and I added 1 more onion, used less oil 1/8 cup of vegetable oil, More to come :) Used 2-3 T of butter and used cooking spray wherever I could & then used maple-cured bacon. I change any recipe I have to make them lower in fat/calories etc. ;)

      We loved this recipe! We like pierogies, but always wanted more flavor and sauce, and this was just the ticket. It was just delicious, and easy. Really foolproof. It's a keeper! My changes: I added kielbasa, and used sliced bacon---and only about 1/4 pound. Also, I only had sweet paprika, so I used a dash of cayenne pepper for heat. Oh, and I pan-fried the pierogies in canola oil. All the changes worked great.
