    I just cooked myself some cheese and potato perrogies, and served them up with sauteed onions, sour cream and bacon. I think this might be one of the greatest dishes on Earth. So, inspired by the Poutine thread, I decided to start this one. Do you like perrogies? If so, how do you like them served?

    Peace,

    You guys are sheltered. Think ravioli and cheese. Now insted of what your thinking it's the same shape, same premise there are different stuff inside perrogies.

    The basic kind is potatoe and cheese filled. The preferred method is pan frying, some steam them. I like mine fried in butter, with garlic, onion, salt and pepper topped while warm with sour cream and bacon.

    You can buy them frozen but the best is fresh from like a polish bakery.
     
  10. Sour Cream,some Sauteed' Onions help too.

    mmm...perrogies

    Poutine is better! :bag:
     
  12. yes. me too! being mostly of polish decent, I have eaten millions of them. i remember my grandma making literally tons of those, and me and my whole exended family would just eat them like crazy.

    my favorites are: cheese, potato, saurkraut and mushroom.

    keep in mind, those are all separate, not combined!


    EDIT: btw, we boil them!

    I have had some good poutine in my day...being a yankie I must say I really enjoy poutine (Toronto has great poutine). But a perroggies would kick a poutine's butt any day!
     
  15. pierogies are pretty tasty, but has anyone tried a pastie? i'm not talking about the nipple covers that strippers used to wear. i'm talking about the pocket sandwich served in northern michigan. pasties are where it's at. especially if they're vegetarian. spicy potatoes and vegetables with cheese in a pastry crust is where it's at. pasties own.

    we boil them too. the town that i grew up in had a large polish population, so even though my family is italian (there's a large italian population there too) we had a lot of polish foods - galumpkie! since my wife is half polish we carry on that tradition in the deep south "enemy territory" heh.

    Let's here it for the Polish! I made them twice form my moms recipe. Both times, while I was making them, I kept saying "this is too much work". But after they were boiled then fried, then enjoyed, it was well worth it.

    Mmmm. I love pierogi. I like to saut√© them with onions and garlic. One thing I miss about Connecticut is being able to buy fresh, locally-made pierogi. My mom is Polish, so I grew up with a lot of delicious food like gołobki, kiełbasa, etc.

    Trader Joe's (you can eat and drink well but inexpensively if there is a Trader Joe's store near you) has some very tasty frozen Russian-style perogi (slightly different from pierogi) with chicken or potato fillings.
