"Very authentic Polish recipe. .Another Polish practice is to roll these in bread crumbs before frying in butter and onions. bread crumbs give a nice crispness. Thanks for not calling these PIEROGIES. Pierogi is already plural, the singular is pierog"

"Nice and easy recipe, I would add some cheddar cheese for more flavour. Will play with some spices as well and see what I can come up with."
