Anyway I came home late and wanted to make something quick. We bought this big box of frozen pierogies from BJ’s sometime back and I wanted to use them up. Pierogies are semicircular dumplings and are usually filled with finely chopped meat or vegetables.
I had my first pierogie almost 2years ago. My ex-colleague, a really nice Polish lady, had brought some pierogies (sautéed in butter with onions) that she made to work. They were sooo good that they melt in your mouth. According to her frozen pierogies is no match to the homemade ones. But I neither have the skill nor the patience to make them at home; so frozen ones are a good substitute.
I sautéed the pierogies (with potatoes and cheddar cheese) in little butter and olive oil with three different peppers.
Frozen pierogies – 5-6 (per person)
Green pepper – 1
Red pepper - 1
Yellow pepper – 1
Onion – 1
Red pepper flakes – ½ tsp
Butter – 1tsp
Olive oil – 1tsp
Salt and pepper – to taste
- Heat butter & oil in a pan. Add red pepper flakes, pierogies and all the veggies (thinly sliced).
- Sauté until the pierogies are golden brown on both sides. Takes about 8-10minutes.
- Add salt and pepper to taste. This dish is very easy and filling too.
