Perogi Dough

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt

Perogi Filling

  • 6 medium Potatoes
  • ½ lb. Cheddar cheese grated

Sautéed Perogi

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 medium onion diced


Perogi Dough

  • Beat egg and water in a bowl, add salt and flour. Form dough into a ball, cover the bowl with a cloth and let sit for 2 hours.

Perogi Filling

  • Boil potatoes in a pot of salted water. When softened, drain out water, mash and add cheddar cheese. Mix well.

Perogi Dumplings

  • Roll the dough out on a lightly dusted surface until 1/8" thick. Cut out circles with the rim of a glass dipped in flour.

  • Stretch each dough circle a bit, then fill with one spoonful of the potato-cheddar mixture in the center. Fold one side over to meet the other and seal together with the prongs of a fork. Place on a tea towel & cover, letting them sit for 1/2 hour. This recipe renders just over 2 dozen Perogi dumplings. Freeze what you don't need right away in a zipped freezer bag (up to 3 months).
  • Bring a large, lightly salted pot of water to a boil. Place the perogi dumplings in and cook until they float to the surface and puff out, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon.
  • While the perogi boil, heat butter and diced onions on low-medium in a frying pan (*optional: you could also add salted pork here*). Add the cooked perogi to the pan and sauté approx. 5 minutes with the onion-butter mix. Place on a platter and serve with sour cream. Enjoy!
