Pierogi Day!

I'm going to keep the food blog posts rolling.  T'is was the season of eating, and eating!  Before Christmas, I was graciously invited to my friend Jen's family's annual Pierogi making day! Jen used to be my roommate many years ago, and when we lived together, every Christmas, she invited me to participate in her family's traditional pierogi day. It is my most favorite day ever!  I love, love going to this fun family event!
This is a day where the entire family, uncles, aunts, cousins, would meet to make about 500 pierogis to be eaten on Christmas Eve.  On Christmas Eve, they don't eat meat, but they eat lots and lots of pierogis.  This recipe has been passed down in their family from generation to generation.  In the above photo is a picture of us making the dough and the below photo is the rolling out and cutting of the dough.
The pierogis are then filled with a potato cheese mixture. 
And here are the pierogis assembled and getting ready to be cooked.  They are so Good!!
After we make all the pierogis, we sit down for dinner, however, none of the pierogis are eaten.  They wait until Christmas Eve to eat them!  Can you imagine making these yummy pierogis and not eat one for a whole week!  Hehehe.  One of Jen's uncles flies in from Key West Florida to make it to Pierogi day, and this year, he brought with him lobsters he caught in Key West.  Boy were they ever tasty!!  Does your family have any holiday food traditions?  Happy eating!!


  1. Yum! Do they freeze them or store them in the refrigator?

  2. I am not sure where you're getting your info, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
