Blackstone Pierogies

I love a good pierogi. These little dumplings are often filled with other things like love, like cheese and potatoes, and are such a hearty and filling meal. What’s not to love? Plus, store-bought versions of these are becoming more and more common, AND better quality too.

Can you make them from scratch? Absolutely. I have a great Pierogi Recipe here on the site. It is quite the task though. Homemade dough, stuffed with filling, sealed shut, boiled, and then pan-fried? Clear your afternoon. It’ll be worth it, sure, but for this particular recipe today I wanted fast, easy, AND delicious.

I found some fresh pierogi at Costco last time I was there and had to grab a pack. You can often find frozen versions too, just make sure to thaw them before cooking on the griddle or the insides will still be frozen when the outsides are browned.

This recipe is great for a quick hearty meal or a stick-to-your-ribs appetizer at your next party. You can make it into a whole meal too by frying up some smoked sausage or kielbasa along with it.

Blackstone Pierogies FAQ

Can this be made in advance?

Yes! This dish actually reheats really well if you need to travel with it. Just keep the sour cream off the plate until it is hot already and people are ready to eat.

What’s the best way to store and reheat the leftovers?

Store the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2-3 days. Reheat in the microwave or in a pan on the stovetop over low to medium-low heat with some more butter.

You can use onions instead of shallots if you’d like. You could throw in some chopped garlic at the end while the last side of the pierogi is browning. You can also experiment with different fillings in the pierogies too. Use your best judgment and experiment!
