Homemade Perogies

Ingredients

Dough

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 - 2 cups flour

Filling

  • ground beef
  • grated cheese
  • mashed potatoes
Preparation Instructions
 

Mix all the dough ingredients together. Add enough flour to make the dough workable, but not too sticky

Place the dough onto a floured surface and roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin.

Flour the edges of a drinking glass. Use the glass to cut the dough into circles. You can re-roll the dough scraps to make more circles.

For Cheesy-Potato Perogies: Boil 2 medium potatoes until fork tender. Mash with grated cheese.
For Cheeseburger Perogies: Mix browned ground beef with grated cheese.

Add a tablespoon of filling to the center of each circle. Fold the dough over the filling. Using your finger, press down the edges to seal the perogy.

Place the finished perogies on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper and lightly floured.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the perogies in batches to the boiling water and wait until they float to the top. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside on a plate while you do the rest in batches.  You can freeze them now if you don't plan to cook them right away.

If you're ready to serve them, place them in a single layer in a large frying pan on medium heat with some melted butter. As soon as they started to brown and get crispy, flip them over and fry the other side.

Serve them up with sour cream and sliced green onions. Salsa is great too!
