Sounds great! I rarely make pieogy these days (I've been low carb for several years) but I sure do love the little buggers! I most often make a potato/cheese filling that reminds me of my Polish comfort food from when I was a child. When I go to visit my dad, I always grab pieogies as a side dish when we go out to eat.

I actually picked up some spinach and potato at the local butcher. I've had many different varieties growing up but never this combination. They were good. Got me thinking of varieties I haven't had since I was young. My grandmother use to make apple perogies and apple pancakes. Now I'm starving. Googled some recipes and I hope they're as good as I remember. I was describing my grandmother's polish cooking to my girlfriend and I said everything is smoothered either in butter or cream cheese. I'm guessing in the health conscience new age maybe these recipes might not live up to the memories.

Are you kidding? Even now one of my biggest comfort meals is golabki and/or piergy, but I don't mind some polska kielbasa and sauerkraut either! I think comfort food favorites never change.

My daughter doesn't even like tomatoes, but her comfort meal is Campbell's Tomato Soup and grilled cheese, or my spaghetti.

Comfort food takes you back to your childhood, and to being held by Babcia tight to her (enormous) bosom.

The thing is, others just don't understand.

One great thing that happened to me was when Bob and I were dating, I told him I was going to make a Polish meal for him, and he said that sounded great. He didn't even ask what I was making. He's 100% Russian, and said he loves Russian food.

I made a big meal- golabki and peirogy both, along with traditional bread.

He walked in, and said, "Oh, you made Russian food. What a surprise!".

Apparently the Russians have claimed golabki and peirogy as well, and he felt right at home digging in, and didn't believe it was Polish comfort food!

My family gets together every year for the weekend before christmas and makes up wards of 15-20 dozen potato and cheese for our huge Christmas Eve Gathering. They are great, come from my grandma's decades old recipe. Christmas morning now involves waking up, opening gifts and then eating a breakfast of ham, kielbasa and pierogies before church.

Have u tried prune pierogies? Those along with the saurkraut and cabbage we make are really good. May be a little unorthodox but once u have them the first time, ur hooked!

Oh and one more thing, if u ever make potato/cheese and have extra filling, throw it on a pizza crust with some melted butter and onions and throw it in the oven like a pizza. Its called Pagach here in NEPA and its a staple around Lent.

I stole my wife from Poland. We don't cook Polish often enough, but we always do the at least 12 polish items for Christmas dinner. It is my favorite ethnic cuisine by far.
We host relatives and inlaws quite a bit, and they just treat us the whole time with Silesian Polish homecooking. Bigos, kwasnica, salatka of all kinds, barscht, rolades, placki, kluski, and dozens of incredible soups.
We honeymooned in Zakopane and I think I must have gained 15 lbs that week between the beer and food.

Yum!

I'm just an native born American mutt myself, but I am 1/4 Latvian, so that side of my family has some traditional fare that is very similar to Polish. It must be in my blood or something because I crave it like nothing else!
