Ingredients

  • 1 x Grimm’s Double Smoked Ukrainian Sausage Ring
  • 16 Pierogis of choice

  • 2 medium-sized yellow onions
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp butter
  • kosher salt to taste

Preparation

  1. Cook pierogi per instructions, set aside, and toss with 1-2 tbsp oil to keep from sticking.

  3. Slice sausage into desired size and pan fry on medium-high heat with a little oil until golden brown on each side.
  4. Then place onion, pan fry the pierogis until golden brown, and flip.
  5. Add in onions and sausage.
  6. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top and broil in the oven for a few minutes or until cheese is bubbly and golden.
  7. Dollop with sour cream and chives.
