Pierogies for the Super Bowl – Here we go Steelers!

Traditional pierogies with butter and onions - This simple and easy recipe starts with a box of frozen pierogies and takes just a few minutes to sauté with butter and onions. Topped with a bit of sour cream, they make a perfect side dish.

My parents are both from Pittsburgh. I was raised not far from Pittsburgh, and I still live in Pennsylvania. While my football allegiance will always lie with the Penn State Nittany Lions, the Steelers have a special place in my heart.

I am delighted that the Steelers are playing in the Super Bowl tomorrow. To celebrate the special occasion, the Feels like Home family is going to munch on finger food – a mostly homemade pizza (recipe to come) and pierogies – on Sunday evening while we watch the game.

Instead of cooking the pierogies traditionally, we're going to bake them.

Baked Pierogies

  1. Toss one box of regular or mini pierogies with 2 tablespoons of oil.
  2. Arrange in a single layer on a bar pan and bake for 16 to 20 minutes, or until puffy and brown.

My friend, Katy from Gem Affair, likes her pierogies fried using the following method.

Fried Pierogies

  1. Deep fry the pierogies in olive oil at 350 until they float and get crispy. It should take 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Instead of drying the pierogies on a paper towel, place them directly into a hot skillet and saute until they are crispy and dry on the outside.

What are you going to do with your now-crispy pierogies? I recommend dipping them into your favorite sauce. Our old standby is Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing or Cheeburger Cheeburger's Habanero Jelly, or one of the following dips:

Bad Breath for Days Dip/Sauce

This sauce is amazing on all pierogies (whether baked, fried, or boiled), pasta, and pretty much everything.

  • 5 tablespoons whipped salted butter
  • Several “glugs” of extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Chopped parsley
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. It will seem like the water is never going to mix in, but if you whisk the mixture long enough, it will become light and fluffy.

How do you like your pierogies?

  1. I went to school in PA and that was the first time I ever heard of pierogies. It was love at first bite and I eat them to this day. We eat frozen ones sorry to say, but once in a while there’s a church that makes them and I’ll buy the fresh ones, yummy!

  3. Oh, the googling you have saved me!

    I’ve been meaning to search around for an onion dip recipe my Big Guy can eat – he’s allergic to garlic. Suddenly, one pops up in my inbox.

    Thanks, Tara! You’re my hero!
