Okay, here it is my first post and recipe - let's dive in!
Perogies (or pierogis) with cabbage; how many of you think of this meal as comfort food? I certainly do because it has the hearty carbs we all crave, it's warm and filling, and if you grew up with an Eastern European heritage, this was your bread and butter.
Strangely, I never think to make this meal and I don't know why. It's very easy, great for families and inexpensive.
Ingredients - Perogies are Potato Spinach & Feta from Wal-Mart, they were really good for a great price
Few things smell and sound better than bacon
Stir up the goodness
I browned the butter a little too much, but they still turned out
And there you have it, super easy! The only thing missing is sour cream - I forgot to buy some! The cabbage cooks down and turns sweet, the bacon is smokey and rich and the perogies are crispy on the outside, fluffy in the middle.
Side note - perogies with wasabi mustard = AMAZING snack
Thank you for reading!
PEROGIES WITH BACON & CABBAGE
Perogies are light and fluffy on the inside, golden brown and crisp outside. The bacon adds a smokey flavour to the sweet cabbage.
