National Pierogi Day and The Briefest of Recipes

I’m not of Polish descent but can appreciate pierogies. If you can’t, odds are you’re a terrible person. In case you were unaware today is National Pierogi Day.

My favorite way to eat them is non-traditional. First, add some oil to a frying pan. Throw in a handful of onions. Allow about 5-7 minutes to brown slightly on medium low heat. For a dozen pierogies add about a tablespoon of soy sauce and a teaspoon of honey. Include a dash of salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix well. Cook until browned a little on both sides (around 10 minutes more, flipping when needed). Serve with apple sauce or sour cream.

If you’re in a big city, odds are you can find them fresh. If not, Mrs T’s makes a really good onion and cheese version though that will require boiling first. I really love the ones with meat and cabbage best of all. National Pierogi Day is a great excuse to carb it out.
