Sauerkraut Filling (Pierogi Filling)

Total Time

My absolute favorite pierogi filling! In fact, I remember us kids fighting over the sauerkraut filled pierogi's. The younger children's favorite is usually the farmers cheese filling. I prefer not to have mushrooms in my sauerkraut filling, but am listing it in the ingredients as optional. These recipes came from a newspaper clipping from 1981 from my mom.
