Without a slow cooker, I would cook the bacon first until crisp, drain and set aside. add the butter to about a tablespoon of the bacon drippings and saute the cabbage and onions in that. Cook your Pierogies in boiling water or microwave, according to the package directions and drain. Then just add the rogi's to the pan with the onions and cabbge, crumble the bacon over top, put a lid over the pan and simmer until warmed through. I do this on the stove top often. Add a little chicken broth to help steam/cook the cabbage and onions. I like to get that nice brown carmelized flavor on the cabbage/onion mix and then throw in a bit of chicken stocck/broth to soften and flavor it. If it looks too dry add more chicken broth. If you like,you can also fry up some hot banana pepper strips and add it to the mix, if you want some heat, and/or top with shredded cheddar cheese and warm until melted. A dash of garlic powder might be nice, too. Season with lots of fresh ground pepper This is a recipe that you can really play with and adjust to your tastes.
