I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
Pierogi is a word that I had never even heard until I was twenty seven and moved to Philly, what had I been missing out on? I see them everywhere now, there's even a delightful take out kitchen close by that sells several different types of pierogi. Sour kraut, loaded baked potato, even Philly cheese steak Pierogi is on their menu. They're delicious, creamy and full of stuf that fill the belly and warms the soul. For those of you unfamiliar with pierogi, they are a dumpling originating from Eastern Europe (think Russia, Poland etc). They are filled with a variety of different things, but potato seems to be the most common. And then they are usually served with sauteed onions and sour cream, oh, I'm hungry just thinking about them!
Aside from getting them at restaurants, you can also get them frozen from grocery stores. But to be honest, I've never been that impressed with the frozen version, and consequently have had a box of them hanging out in my freezer longer then I'd like to admit.
So this recipe came in very handy to dress up the poor neglected pierogi in my freezer, and made them SO delicious. The sauce and cheese coats the already cheesy pierogi and adds so much great flavor. And let us not forget that there is bacon in there too. Need I say more? Check out the recipe here!
