And that is a pretty wide area to cover. Because perogies come in such a variety, filled with as many ingredients as imagination and access permit.

What Are Perogies?

A pierogi is essentially an eastern European dumpling, typically boiled, then pan fried quickly before serving. Although sometimes an oven is used to broil them briefly instead.

They can be filled with all sorts of things, but typical ingredients include things like pork and sauerkraut, cabbage and mushrooms, or raisins, fruits, and marzipan. Tons of options!

If it seems similar to a Chinese dumpling, then you paid attention in world history. Remember when the teacher said Marco Polo brought pasta to Italy from his worldly exploits in China?

Well, I guess he learned a couple good dumpling recipes along the way too. So good, they were shared all the way to Poland, Czechoslovakia, and all the other eastern European countries.

What Sides to Serve with Perogies

Perogies range from savory to sweet, and of course some are somewhere, in fact everywhere, in between. That means sides that go best get equally diverse quickly.

It is also true for the condiments to use on them as well.

Sauces and dips, and other ways to dress them up wildly diverse and unique. From traditional sour cream sauces, to chili sauces, and so much more.

Luckily, rounding up this collection of recipes takes you everywhere you might want to go. So you get to decide what goes best with a spicy perogy or adding a vegetable side to balance out some meat stuffed perogies.
