I spent the weekend with my girlfriend and we made pierogi. Actually she made pierogi and I tried to stay out of the way. It was our first time doing it and they turned out pretty good.

First they were boiled for 10 minutes and then fried. Onions and sausage optional.

Final product on the plate. Don’t forget the sour cream. We both agreed we could have boiled them a little longer but they were good nonetheless.Some of them also came apart a little bit when boiling but overall they turned out well and exceeded my expectations. Smacznego!
