Wanna know my fave food? Of course you do. My fave thing to eat is perogies. But not just any perogies!
Yam, bacon, and onion perogies! Shockingly delicious. And dairy-free. (I have a terrible disability. Touchy subject, thanks for bringing it up.)
Combine a big old baked (microwaved) yam with a bunch of green onions, a blob of
margarine butter, some salt and pepper, and around 8 “rashers” of bacon. (I hate that word. I don’t know why.) (I make these without the bacon frequently and they are still totally delicious- so this would make a perfect vegetarian perogie!)
Next, make this perogie dough recipe. I triple it cuz thats how I roll. Let it sit for at least half an hour, then rollllll it into 9inch-ish round-ish rounds.
Then break out your HUNKY BILLS LITTLE PEROGIE MAKER!!! Pipe or spoon the filling into the little spots where filling goes.
If you don’t have one of these incredible inventions, Babi will explain how to make these the old-fashioned way. But, seriously, I have two- you can borrow one of mine.
Loooook at those lil buddies.
And now you get to ingest them. I like em boiled, but if you are like my hubby, you’ll like em fried…
…in bacon fat, with sour cream and cheese. On a rectangle plate.
Now if you wanna freeze these bad boys, just dust em with flour and freeze them on trays. After they are frozen, you can stick em in a freezer bag and treat them just like you would treat the Cheemo variety, but with more respect. And chivalry. When is the last time you opened the freezer door for a perogie, hmm?
There is a very large cow’s heart under those perogies. (And I love how that’s actually true.)
Now give em to yer Valentine. My Valentine is Paola.
This dough/method is really versatile- put whatever you want in these bad boys! Potato and cheddar, sauerkraut and sausage, banana peel and haggis, whatever floats yer boat!
Well, that’s all for today. And now I’m going to take this opportunity to…
