Delicious Pierogi

Pierogi are a filled dumpling usually found in Poland or Russia and can now be readily brought frozen from any very good deli.  The brand I buy is called Pelmeni and they are filled with spinach and ricotta cheese.  They also come filled with beef or chicken which we are also eager to try.

The pasta only take minutes to prepare and you can have a lovely authentic plate of deliciousness in no time at all…

This is our favourite way of serving them…  If you omit the bacon it becomes a vegetarian meal – just add additional onions or mushrooms…  They can also be served without the sour cream – we were scoffing them straight out of the pan before we served them up!

Ingredients:

Frozen Pelmeni Traditional Russian Pasta

1 finely chopped onion

4 rashers bacon, finely sliced into batons

3 tablespoons of sour cream

1 teaspoon of paprika (or to taste)

1 tablespoon finely chopped dill plus some extra for garnish

Salt & pepper to taste

Olive oil for frying

Method:

Boil the dumplings according to the packet – around 4-5 minutes

In the meantime fry the bacon and onion together in a little olive oil until crisp

Heat a large frying pan with a little olive oil and when very hot tip in the drained dumplings

Fry over a high heat until a little browned and tip in the onions & bacon tossing them through

Mix the sour cream, paprika, dill , salt & pepper together in a bowl

Serve the pasta/onions & bacon  with the sour cream mix spooned over the top

Garnish with fresh dill

Bon Appetit!  🙂
