Pierogis oh how I love thee. But the can not be eaten plain, they must be dressed. For this recipe I dressed them with caramelized onion, tomato, bell pepper and garlic. I should have added bacon! Now I think of it of course. You can make them from scratch of course, I just don't have time for that. If you have never eaten a pierogi I highly recommend you try them at least once. You will continue eating them I promise.
