    Pierogies, anyone?

    I love them. My mother used to make them. Now I buy the frozen ones and either fry or boil them. Mostly boil. In a small cast iron skillet I'll put maybe one half stick of butter and some diced fresh onions, and sauté the onions until they turn clear. By that time the pierogies are ready to eat, so I'll put them on the plate and cover them with the butter/onion sauce. I can eat them until, well, a good plateful might fill me up....

    That is the same way I like them. Let me tell you mister I can eat a whole box and a few onions in one sitting.

    I get the big bag from Walmart..... once in a while I can find some at Publix. Either way is a crapshoot, as there ain't a lot of Polish people down here.....

    I grew up in a Polish Community, surrounded by Detroit. Strodek's Deli ships to Arkansas. We saute the onions in olive oil till not quite golden, serve with Greek style yogurt, instead of sour cream. Last summer, the wife drove back for a class reunion. Brought back 4 dozen and several links of their roasted kielbasa.

    Try sprinkling bread crumbs on them and drizzling with canned evaporated milk. It’s how us PA pollocks were taught to eat them. And don’t forget the large piece of kielbasa on the side.

    I'm in coal mining country, (lots of Polish and Ukranian Immigrants were recruited by the mining companies) so they are always available every that sells cooked food, but you've gotta be specific how you want them or they are likely to be deep fried like French fries.

    I like mine pan fried in butter put into the pan about the time the onions turn clear
    and served with a generous dollop of sour cream.
    I like parts of the Pierogie to be carmelized by the hot pan/boiling butter.

    In a perfect world the sour cream will be Axelrod's Sour Cream & Onions, something I haven't been able to get out here, but next time I get to Northern NJ....

    I'm going to have to try that, I keep several cases of evaporated milk in the house as it is a necessary Ingredient for Tuna or Salmon Caserol and also to make sausage gravy.

    Traditionally (at least in Manitoba where my wife is from) they boil the Pierogis first and then pan fry them with a bit of butter. Sauteed onions and some crumbled crisp bacon are sprinkled over them and then they are topped with sour cream. Coarse Kielbasa sausage (with big chunks of visible ham in it) is sliced and pan fried to complete the meal.
    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    Check in your Boyer's or savealot. My favorite are jalapeno and cheddar, boiled, pan fried with butter and onions, and hot sauce.

    As you can tell by my avatar, I'm not much of a beer drinker. However, when I do, I prefer ale. When I lived in Detroit, the Canadian offerings were available. Down here in Arkansas, can't even get Molson Canadian (lager)........let alone Molson Golden (ale).
