Wonder woman got me a pierogi press for Christmas (as requested) so this morning I made a batch of pork pierogis.

Dough:

300g AP flour
20g melted margarine
1 egg
125ml boiling water
1/2 t. salt

Combine; knead 8 minutes.

Filling:

1 lb. roasted pork, coarsely ground
1 egg
1 C. meat broth
1 medium onion, finely diced
salt and pepper

Roll dough out thin. Cut into circles with large cookie cutter. Place dough on press, fill with about 2 t. filling, edge with egg/water mixture, seal. Boil until pierogis float, remove then fry in margarine/olive oil mix. Serve with sour cream.

I really liked them. Trace and Nick not so much. Next up potato/cheese filling.
Best,
Tom

You're in trouble now, Tom. A toy like that begs to be played with---and played with---and........Approve

My problem with all of those related dumplings is that I'm rolling-pin challenged. It isn't the filling & folding that gets me, it's rolling out the dough in the first place. A shame, cuz I love 'em all, no matter the ethnic origins.

When you make the potato/cheese version, one variant you might like is to do the frying in sage butter. Brings an extra flavor profile we find very appealing. 


But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thanket

I don't have a real problem with rolling pins (at least since I discovered the use of sleeves), but I am giving a thought to using the pasta roller if this turns into too big of a habit.

Tom

Trying a potato/cheese filling today:

1# russet potatoes, boiled and mashed
8 oz. small curd cottage, rinsed and drained
2 T. onion, diced and cooked until transparent in margarine
8 oz. shredded Colby cheese

We'll see what happens.
Best,
Tom

I love pierogi - the more home-made, the better! My favourites are the cheese (cheddar) and mashed potato, but I'm open to trying anything.

I forgot to mention: tossing them in a melted butter/fried onion combination is really, really good...even better when fried in the same "onion butter" for breakfast the next morning!
