Here’s something for pretty much everyone.  Home made pirogies.

I know you all have probably bought the frozen variety, mostly due to convenience, but, if you have a bit of time on the weekends or something, you can make your own, and actually put what you want in them, instead of dealing with the store supplied fillings.

What you will need:


2 cups flour
a tsp of salt
enough water to make it into a pliable dough

Now mix all these together…the water is subjective so just add a little at a time until it forms a dough.  Then knead this dough. and let rest


1lb of potatoes, peeled and mashed.

Now what I like to put in it is a mixture of stuff

I take some bacon, cut it up and fry it until crisp with some minced onions so they caramalize.  Then I mix in with the already hot mashed potatoes, some garlic spread,  the bacon, the onions, a bit of grated sharp cheddar cheese, and a dollop of sour cream and some minced chives.

Now,  Roll out the pirogie dough on a floured surface so it’s about 1/4-1/8″ thick..not too thick but not too thin.  Take a glass or a small plastic cup and cut out circles.  Put a tablespoon of your potato mixture in the middle of each of the circles, then take your finger, put it in some warm water and trace the outside of each circle before folding them in half and pinching the pirogies shut.

Cook in boiling water until they float.  If you want,  you can freeze them for later, or toss in butter/bacon/chives and serve with sour cream!
