What are perogies?
Pierogi (plural Eastern European spelling), or perogies, are small dough pockets typically filled with mashed potatoes, fried onions, sauerkraut, spinach, mushrooms, meat or bacon. But they can also have a sweet filling made with fruit such as berries, apricots and apples or a sweet cream cheese.
What is the traditional way to cook perogies?
Pierogi are traditionally boiled in a large pot of water first and removed with a slotted spoon when they float to the top. Then they can either be baked until golden brown or fried in a large skillet in melted butter or olive oil over medium heat.
How are perogies traditionally served?
Pierogi are simply served with a traditional Polish topping of a dollop of sour cream, Greek yogurt or cottage cheese, melted butter, fried onions or pork rinds. You can change up the flavor profile with a sauce made with fresh herbs such as thyme, basil, parsley or chives and green onions.
What to Serve with Perogies
This recipe collection shows you the best options of what goes with perogies for dinner to make a complete meal. From meats to serve to savory side dishes to bright salads to cozy soups and dipping sauces, we have you covered!
Perfect Vegetable Sides
Fresh Delicious Salads
Perogies are rich, satisfying comfort food so you can plan on 2-3 per person when they’re an appetizer or side dish. If they’re the main course with other sides, figure 3-5 per person. Leftovers are great for breakfast the next day and will keep in the fridge up to a week.
If the perogies are frozen, they need to be boiled first. However, you don’t have to boil chilled pierogi that’s already precooked. You can put them straight into the skillet, oven or grilling pan.
Good savory dipping sauces for cheese and potato perogies other than sour cream are tomato sauce, pesto, creamy mushroom sauce or a chili sauce. For sweet tastes maple syrup, honey, fruit sauces and jams are great options.
