Easy Pierogies Recipe

By Edited Aug 22, 2016 3 4

Pierogies are delicious, but time consuming dish. With my easy potato and quark recipe you skip most labor intensive part of the cooking: formation of the dumplings! Lets get started.

Ingredients for pierogies

  • potatoes - 2 parts
  • low fat quark - 1 part
  • a few onions
  • kefir - 0.5 l
  • 1-2 eggs
  • flour - 1 glass
  • salt
  • pepper
  • butter
  • smoked bacon (optional)
  • yoghurt (optional)
  • sugar, vanilla sugar (optional)

How to prepare stuffing for pierogies

Cook potatoes. Mince them and the quark in the meat grinder. Dissolve a spoon of butter on the frying pan and fry minced onions till they have a golden look. Group all the ingredients for stuffing together and mix them. Add a bit of salt and pepper - depending on your taste.

How to prepare pierogies dough

Mix kefir and eggs together. Slowly keep adding flour and stirring it in. Stop when the dough is just right - you want it still fluid but a bit difficult to pour. That's the key part of this recipe. If the dough is too loose it will come off the stuffing. If it's too tough you will fail to submerge the stuffing.

How to make easy pierogies

Form a flat rings from the stuffing - about 3-4 cm (1.5 inch) in diameter, 1 cm (0.4 inch) in width. First cover them with flour. Then, submerge the rings in the dough with the help of 2 spoons so that they are completely covered after pulling them out. Throw them to the pot with the salty, boiling water.

Afer your pierogies float to the surface, remove them from the oven with the draining spoon and put on the draining dish. Run the stream of the cold water over the dumplings to remove possible stickiness.

How to serve pierogies

Put them in the bowl and cover with melted butter or smoked bacon to serve in the traditional way. Sour cream makes a trusted addition as well. Some people prefer to eat dumplings as a sweet dish. For those folks use yoghurt as the cover and sprinkle with sugar or vanilla sugar on the top.

Thanks for sharing you pierogies recipe. My mother-in-law taught me to make them years ago, and they are quite a job to make. I am lazy now, and purchase them already prepared. I just boil and fry them. Welcome to IB

Thank you for a warm welcome. I admit that I prepare pierogies rarely. I'm lazy as well. As I dislike prepared ones, I eat less time consuming food.
