Frozen Perogies (Pierogies) to the Rescue!

My kids tend to be picky eaters so you can imagine how excited I was to discover that they all like perogies! I don’t have the skills to make them from scratch which is why I’m grateful to be able to find them in the frozen food section at the grocery store.

We all really enjoy either the bacon and potato or cheese and potato varieties. I love that these frozen pierogies are simple to prepare which I’m making other parts of the meal. Our crispy breaded chicken is always a hit alongside the toasted perogies.

The frozen perogis are also quite inexpensive to buy. A couple of bags are perfect for feeding a crowd during a party or get-together.

Ingredients Needed for this Frozen Perogies Dish

This simple side dish idea needs just 3 ingredients:

  • frozen perogies of your choice (4-5 per person is plenty)
  • bread crumbs (plain or Italian seasoned)
  • butter, margarine or a little oil

How to Cook Frozen Perogies

Bring water in a medium to large pot to boil.

Add frozen perogies and cook about 7-10 minutes, until the perogis float to the top.

Drain the perogies.

How to Coat Perogis with Breadcrumbs

In the meantime, heat butter/oil to medium heat in a large frying pan.

Add perogies to the frying pan in one layer. You may need to do a couple of batches if cooking a lot of perogies.

Sprinkle with bread crumbs to coat. Fry for 1-2 minutes then flip to the other side. Sprinkle again and fry for another 1-2 minutes.

What to Serve with this Frozen Pierogies Side Dish

Frozen perogies make a simple side dish for any meal where you’d consider adding potatoes, pasta or rice. We often serve them alongside:

How to Store Leftover Cooked Perogies

Once cooked, frozen perogies are best enjoyed right away. If you do have some leftovers, place them in a sealed container in the fridge. Use up within 3 days.
