Homemade Garlic Pierogies

Although a large part of me is Polish, I never grew up eating much Polish food, including Pierogis. It wasn’t until I started dating my boyfriend nine years ago, that I had my first one. I was shocked that I have never had them before considering my food preferences typically align with the foods that Pierogis are made up of: potatoes, cheese, and dumplings/noodles. After that first taste, it became a much repeated side dish at dinnertime.

Since I usually opt for the frozen kind when it comes to Piergoi’s, I have never made my own homemade ones. I was surprised at how easy they were to make, especially since I cut out quite a bit of steps by using Simply Potatoes® Mashed Potatoes in my recipe. Pulling out one of these versus going through the process of making homemade mashed potatoes is such a lifesaver, and in my opinion, just as good tasting.

  1. 5 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 cup butter, softened
  3. 2 teaspoon seasoning salt
  4. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  5. 1 teaspoon black pepper
  6. 3 eggs
  7. 1 cup water
  8. 1 package of Simpy Potatoes® Mashed Potatoes
  9. Steak seasoning
  1. Combine the flour, salt, garlic powder, black pepper and seasoning salt until combined.
  2. In a food processor, add the flour mixture. Add in water, eggs, and butter, cover and pulse until dough forms a ball, adding an additional tablespoon of flour or water if needed.
  3. Let rest, covered, for 15 to 30 minutes.
  4. Divide dough into four parts and on a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough out into 1/8-in thickness.
  5. Cut with biscuit cutter and place a teaspoon (or more depending on size of circle) of Simply Potatoes Mashed Potatoes in the center.
  6. Moisten the edges with water, fold in half and press edges to seal. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  7. Bring a pot of water to boil and add Pierogies in batches.
  8. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until pierogies float to the top and feel tender.
  9. Remove with slotted spoon.
  10. In a frying pan of butter, add in the pierogies and season with steak seasoning. Cook until golden brown!

I should also mention that this will certainly feed at least 6 people, but if you have a smaller family like mine, they freeze very well! I am so thrilled with how these came out – lately, I’ve been going outside my box more in the kitchen and making things I’ve never made before! It’s a nice feeling, and I suggest you do the same! The even better thing is that Simply Potatoes® Mashed Potatoes come in other offerings besides Traditional mashed potatoes – including, Sour Cream & Chive, Garlic, and Parmesan Peppercorn – making this recipe even more favorable and versatile. What one will you try
