Potato and Cheese Pierogi Recipe | The Atria Kitchen
Posted on April 26, 2014 by Taylor Rhea
Pierogi are traditional Polish dumplings most often filled with either sauerkraut or potatoes and cheese. I fondly remember my mother making potato and cheese pierogi for Friday night suppers. Following in my mother’s footsteps, I made pierogi for my family as well. I was born and raised in Chicago. My family attended St. Adalbert Polish Church. In preparation for the parish festivals, I would join 25 other women to make thousands of pierogi to sell at the feast. No matter how many we made, it was never enough. They all sold out on the first day of the feast.
