For the past several years, we’ve been buying pierogi at Lila’s Pierogi in Livonia. Lila’s Pierogi has 20 different flavors to choose from, we’ve tried several of them, but my favorite is the farmer’s cheese flavor. The blueberry pierogi was unusual, but delicious. They are sold frozen by the dozen and half dozen. Typically we get a dozen and pan fry them all at once. Dave and I will eat two each for dinner along with a couple of side vegetables so we’ll just microwave or toaster oven the leftover pierogi for the following two days, they keep very well.
Lila’s Pierogi are fully cooked, so you don’t need to boil them, just thaw them before cooking. I generally thaw them on in the fridge overnight and then place the pierogi between paper towel on the counter a little bit before cooking to remove some of the excess moisture. I pan fry them in a little olive oil in the cast iron skillet until they’re warm inside and nice and golden brown on the outside. We usually serve them with sour cream and applesauce.
