Penny (my sister) and I got together this afternoon with a mission to make a whole heap of pierogi, which are Polish dumplings that can be made with various fillings. We did it the way our Babcia (grandmother) always does and that’s with mince and onion.
So we chopped and fried off the onions, browned the mince and then combined the two:
The dough consists of flour, water, a pinch of salt and a couple of eggs:
While we ( actually I lost count how many Penny had ) had a couple of these:
…we kneaded and rolled and cut out the dough in small rounds and filled each one with some of the mince and onion mixture, sealing them tightly so they don’t come apart while cooking:
I should say here before Penny rings up and complains that I didn’t give her enough credit that Penny did do most of the hard yakka……
We made 350 of these little suckers! All lined up and ready to be cooked in boiling water. Penny assured me that they were ready when they suck to the bottom of the pot. I assured her that they were actually ready when they floated to the top LOL
Delicious with some melted butter and sour cream….good for lips, but definitely NOT good for the hip!
