Polish Pierogi anyone?

Happy spring Saturday. I am in Northern PA and we were in Olean NY today. We stopped at the Dollar Store and picked up some Pirogi! They were great! Who'd have thought at the Dollar Store! For those who do not know what they are, they are Polish Potato filled Pockets similar to Ravioli for Italians. They are typically stuffed w/potatoes and cheese. They are soooo yummy. Try them and let me know how you like them. The Pirogi can be slightly boiled then quickly sauteed as a different way to fix them.When I made them for my 5 and 6 yo granddaughters, I called them Potato hot pockets! One took the bait to try them and loved them with sour cream on top!

 To fix the Pierogi:

Patti's Pirogi 
1 bag of Dollar Store Pierogi (or any other brand)
1 large onion, sliced
3 Tbs Olive oil
1 Tbs Butter
Additional oil and butter as needed to saute

In the oil and butter, saute 1 large onion until light, golden brown. Remove onions. Add additional oil and butter to saute the Pirogi until light golden brown. Drain on paper towels, Serve with onions and sour cream. YUM! Great side dish with chicken or beef, a salad and veggie.

From start to finish takes about 20 min to prep and cook all ingredients. A different and pleasant change of pace from potatoes or rice.
