My husband is used to having kielbasa with his pierogies so I sliced turkey kielbasa and heated in a pan with some olive oil before adding the rest of the ingredients. It was delicious! We all loved it and it's healthier than the original w/bacon. Thank you for a great recipe!

The cabbage to pierogies ratio was a little off for me. I also thought the cabbage mixture was a little too tart. I won't make this again.

This recipe came out beautiful with adjustments. I used a bag of coleslaw mix, cut out the veg. oil as there was enough drippings, added 1t. of sugar because of the store bought tomatoes and used fresh pierogies (also made with potato dumplings once) I did not have white wine vinegar so used red instead. This dish was fully of color and carried a nice taste and look. This is a keeper! Anna H.

This was really a surprise. I enjoy cabbage, so I thought I'd try this recipe. Great flavor and easy. After making and eating this, I have no idea why oil was listed. It surely does not need it.

Wow! Loved it!! I knew my husband wasn't crazy about pierogies but I love them, so I gave it a try. He loved it and even went back for seconds. It was a nice change from the normal old pierogies with butter. Thanks for the great recipe!!

This is a good, quick and inexpensive recipe - great as is, and perfect for tweaking to taste. I sauteed my onions before adding the cabbage, added a little more vinegar, some celery seed and lots of black pepper. I also sauteed my pierogies according to the package directions instead of boiling. The tomatoes are a great touch! Thanks for the recipe!

Oh my Goodness, that was sooooo good. Followed the recipe pretty much to the letter... just didn't add the extra oil, wasn't really needed with the bacon drippings. Only had red wine vinegar but that didn't seem to hurt it any. It's five stars all the way and I will definitely make this again and again.

Used turkey kielbasa instead of bacon and packaged cole slaw mix, but everything else according to recipe. We loved it! Even my 3-year-old ate it. It wasn't a heavy dish with the change of kielbasa for bacon, was very colorful. The only thing I would change is I actually found it a little bland and will add more vinegar and more salt next time. Definitely a keeper!
