Pierogi with potato, cheese and Hungarian sausage

You don’t have to be eastern European to love this ultimate comfort food. I grew up making pierogi with potato, cheese and bacon bits filling. Steam it and serve with sour cream. They are good on next day as well; just warm it up by frying quickly on the pan. You could make it with different fillings but one of my favorite ones are mushroom, sauerkraut, meat and potato or sausage and potato. Give it a try 🙂
