"This is a great side dish for pork or chicken main dishes. This can also be a great idea for an appetizer. This was a recipe that I learned from a friend in high school."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

salt and pepper to taste
frozen pierogies, thawed
This is basically how I usually make my pierogies. I always make them to taste. So, I decided to try this with exact amounts. I doubled the recipes and made 12 pierogies and used 1/2 whipped butter and 1/2 lite margarine to lighten it up. The best unintended part of the recipe was I made a couple steaks yesterday I made on the grill. I took them out of the fridge and sliced them and sauteed them in the pan after I removed the pierogies and they got a nice flavor with the butter, onion, garlic, parsley combination left in the pan. So, it made an easy complete meal in one pan today.
These tend to be not as creamy on the inside and crisp on the outside because you did not cook the pierogies in hot water first. Bring the water to a boil and add pierogies. When they float take them out to steam dry. Sauté butter, onions & garlic until semi translucent and add the pierogies. When they are slightly golden they are perfect! Yum.
This is pretty much just how I make my pierogies, except I make more than six, and, therefore use more butter and onions and such. I do have to admit, 9 times out of 10, I do boil them slightly first (just the way we always did it), but if I'm in a hurry, or just don't feel like it, I cook them like this from frozen...either way, they turn out perfectly delicious, buttery, yummy goodness! :)
This is the way I have been serving pierogies for years! Fast, easy, filling & delicious!
Oh, now this is comfort food at it's best! Rich, delicious, and very filling - not for those counting calories or for those of us like myself who made their New Year's resolution to get healthy LOL! I made this for my husband and this is pretty much the way my Mom used to make them for me as a kid. The only exception for me was I got my hands on homemade church pierogies thanks to my mother-in-law! And for those of you who've had a "church" pierogi you know what I'm talking about. Perfect topped with fresh chives vs. parsley and a side of sour cream - YUM!
This was a tasty and satisfying side dish. I found a great quality brand of frozen pierogies and followed the recipe exactly. My husband loved it.
I think pierogies are bland.
