Potato and Bacon Pierogi
Description: Potato and Bacon Pierogi (Ruskie z Boczkiem) is a twist on a classic. This dumpling is filled with freshly whipped Idaho potatoes mixed with crispy bacon bits. The combination creates an “Old World” flavor.
Preparation: Allow pierogi thaw, preferably in your refrigerator. Bring a deep pot of salted water (sea salt recommended) to a rolling boil. Depending on the size of your pot, drop 6 to 12 pierogi one at a time into the boiling water. Make sure there is enough room so that the pierogi do not touch. When the pierogi rise to the surface, cook an extra 3-4 minutes and then serve. Optionally, after boiling them, place thawed pierogi in a skillet with melted butter on low heat and turn occasionally to brown evenly on both sides.
IMPORTANT: Avoid high heat as it tends to toughen the dough.
Weight: 11-13 pierogi per package. approx 1lb.
