Have you tried pierogies? I tried these little treats years ago but have never made them myself…until recently. I found this really simple potato pierogies recipe and I just had to share it with all of you. This is one of the easiest things that you will ever make and it’s one of the tastiest, too!
Do All Pierogies Have Potatoes In Them?
All of the pierogies that I have tried have had mashed potatoes in them, but the other ingredients can vary greatly, depending on what you want. Some popular fillings include:
- Fried Onions
What Kind Of Sauce Is Good With Pierogies?
You can actually enjoy perogies on their own without any sauce, but they are really good with butter sauce, too. There are many recommended sauce recipes if you want to add a little kick to your potato perogies.
Or, you could just serve them with sour cream, which is what I did and they were delicious.
What’s Good With Pierogies?
Everything! I like these on their own like a little appetizer, but you can totally serve them as a main dish, too. They go really well with any number of side dishes, like this million dollar mac and cheese, or you could pair them with these slow cooker meatballs. And for dessert, you really do need to try these mini cheesecakes with almonds.
