National Pierogi Day

National Pierogi Day recognizes an international dish that is a type of dumpling. 

Pierogi is the plural form of the rarely used Polish word pierog. In English, we spell pierogi several ways, including perogi and pierogy. However you choose to spell it, pierogi are dumplings made up of unleavened dough. First, pierogi are boiled. Then, cooks will either bake or fry the dumplings in butter to finish cooking them. Usually semicircular in shape, pierogi are traditionally stuffed with a variety of savory fillings.

Pierogi Combinations:

  • mashed potato filling
  • potato and cheese
  • potato and onion
  • cheese
  • cabbage
  • sauerkraut
  • ground meat
  • mushroom
  • spinach or fruit.

Mmmmhhh. Sounds like something that would be nice to have on the table while watching a Dawg game, say this coming weekend?

    they're pretty great. there's a neighborhood in the city that used to be heavily polish, still some there, but not as much. You can get amazing pierogi. My favorite is the potato and cheese

    Love pierogis. I’m a big Steelers fan and that’s a huge tailgating food every year.

    When I was stationed in northern Michigan I met a bunch of Polish guys on the local volunteer rescue squad. Their wives would make all different types of pierogies for our quarterly meetings. Man, these recipes came down from the old country and all of them were good. One lady made one with sausage, mashed potatoes and spinach. It would blow yer socks off!!

    In my experience, pierogi are eaten with onions in butter (sweated chopped onions). Most usual fillings are mashed potatoes, cabbage, sauerkraut, and mushroom - perhaps in that order (or switch cabbage and sauerkraut). Yum

    My UGA girlfriend’s family immigrated from Poland (her grandparents) so her mom would make potato pierogi for Sunday dinner-yum!

    I've eaten almost everything under the sun, but I've never had pierogi. Would love to remedy that.
