Gabriel asked me to marry him over a plate of pierogies, so they hold a special place in my heart. The ones we have in the marketplace are so deliciously simple to make and all they need is a little enhancement. Choose your favorite sausage or tofu and then add yummy sauerkraut!
What you need:
- 1 package pierogies, 12 pieces
- 1 onion, sliced thin
- 4 sausages, or other protein
- 3/4 cup sauerkraut
- oil, salt & pepper
- Applesauce and sour cream/yogurt, for serving
*Swap in sauteed cabbage for the sauerkraut if you prefer.
We are going to boil and then pan fry the pierogies, you can skip the pan fry if you want a softer feel.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, in a large pan saute the onions and chop the sausage into large pieces. Once the onions become translucent add the sausage to the pan. Cook for about 8-10 minutes over medium heat.
When the water is boiling, salt and add pierogies. Cook for 3 minutes. You can then serve them just boiled, or pan fry them. Remove the sausage and onions from the pan, set aside. Add some oil to the pan and fry the pierogies 3 minutes each side. They should become golden and crisp.
Plate pierogies with the sausage and kraut on top. Serve with applesauce or sour cream/yogurt on the side. Enjoy!
