This is an excellent pierogi filling. I made this today and added the sauteed onions to the mixture, using one large fat clove of garlic. It was the first time using garlic in a pierogi filling for me and I was very pleased with the results. I used the dough from Rita L's pierogi recipe(#48587) and combined with your filling recipe they turned out fantastic! Best I have ever eaten! I used Davidstow Cheddar and only one of the eggs required as I felt that the mixture would have been too damp with two. Thanks for a great recipe that I will be using from now on when I make my pierogi's!
