Chef John's Cheater Pierogi

Plays: 13017

In this video, you’ll learn how to make pierogi the quick-and-easy (if not entirely authentic) way. First, you’ll add egg and farmer’s cheese (it's like a cross between cream cheese and ricotta) to mashed potatoes. So ok, that’s legit enough so far. The cheating part comes next, when you use wonton skins for the pierogi dough! This method may not entirely impress your Polish grandmother. But that’s ok, because this is a terrific shortcut method when you need delicious pierogi fast! Chef John likes his pierogi fried with bacon and onion alongside a dollop of sour cream. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Cheater Pierogi. This is fantastic comfort food made simple! See more Chef John videos >>
