How do you eat perogies?

Perogies is a versatile dish that goes almost with any filling and any topping of your choice. It works great as a breakfast, lunch, or dinner. For breakfast boil the perogies in hot water and drain them after 5 minutes. Serve the dumplings with sautéed onions or bacon to enjoy a wholesome and nourishing breakfast.

To enjoy perogies as a dessert, serve them with toppings like whipped cream, berries, powdered sugar or melted butter. Perogies also work as wonderful starters; coat the boiled perogies in some flour, eggs and bread crumbs and deep fry the dumpling in hot oil. If you are a health-conscious dieter, bake the perogies instead of deep frying and enjoy them with a dip of your choice.

Try our mouth-watering cheese perogies today. We recommend sautéing it in butter over medium heat and for topping try granulated sugar to indulge in extraordinary yumminess. This recipe barely takes 2-3 minutes to prepare, and it is one of the best ways to enjoy these succulent dumplings.

Can I make perogies dough ahead of time?

The dough for perogies contains flour, hot water, eggs, and salt. You can make it ahead of time and freeze it up to three months before using it. Before you are ready to make a pierogi, allow the dough to sit in room temperature for 3-4 hours to be able to roll out the dough and cut out the shapes.

Another technique is to freeze perogies after preparing the dough and shaping the dumplings along with the filling. Whenever you want to enjoy some perogies, just take out the perogies from your freezer and boil the dumplings. This saves you a lot of time and allows you to instantly devour some perogies after a long tiring day.

Difference between perogies and vareniki

Varenyky and Pierogi are both dumplings with fillings except that the Russians call it vareniki while Poland, Slovakia, and Ukraine denote these dumplings as perogies. Another notable variation is that Varenyky means "boiling liquid" in Ukranian and as the name suggests the primary method for cooking varenyky is to steep the dumplings in boiling water. On the contrary, perogies can be either pan-fried or boiled. 

The savory version usually comes with toppings like fried salo bits, sour cream or onions while the sweet varenyky comes with toppings like smetana, honey, sugar or varenye. On the other hand, toppings for perogies include butter, Greek yogurt, sour cream, caramelized onions, and bacon.
