I’m a Polish redhead.
I don’t like Polish jokes. I get a bit heated if I hear one. I turn all red, and my ears get hot. lol
This is no joke…I grew up eating fresh pierogies from the Farmer’s Market, and I also remember making homemade ones with my family, in fact it’s one of the last memories I shared with my brother before he passed. When I went out on my own, I started buying Mrs. T’s Pierogies because they are so low fat, and available. I usually just sauté them with a little olive oil, and onions. My Mom has a wonderful way to make them where she adds cottage cheese at the end and it gets all creamy and cheesy.
Oh, no matter how you eat them, they are so comforting.
So, while we were out on Saturday, we stopped at Costco and it was jam packed. They had their “samples” at the end of every aisle. Love that.
They had 2 employees that had set up a “Pierogi camp” where they were giving away samples of cooked pierogies. Here’s the big bag of pierogies I
was brainwashed into ended up buying…
I chose the potato and onion flavor because they are my favorite. Mind you, I had no intention of making soup until the check out lady told me she throws her left over pierogies in soup.
STOP RIGHT THERE.
Say what? This women is a genius! My husband looked at me and said, “Sounds post worthy to me!” I said, “Sure does, I’ll do it for us tonight.”
So…I came up with my very own little “Pierogi Soup” recipe. This isn’t low in carbs, but it’s low in fat, and very very comforting with out being horribly bad for you.
I was tempted to a add a dollop of sour cream, but I chickened out. I think I might try that next time.
Here’s a few photos I took that night, and the recipe follows. Feel free to use any pierogies you wish, but Peter and Pat’s Pierogies knocked my babushka off my head. They were DELISH.
