The recipe is taken from Foodnetwork.com:
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 large potatoes
- 8 ounces sharp-tasting cheese
- salt and pepper
So how did they turn out? Mine is on the left:
As a note, once they were both pan-fried in butter, I stirred them in with mushrooms, onions, and cabbage that I had previously pan fried in butter and garlic. Just top it with parmesan cheese and parsley. They were FAN.TAS.TIC:
So, how does the cost compare?
|Cheemo Potato and Cheddar||14||$ 3.00||$ 0.21|
|Homemade||30||$ 3.90||$ 0.13|
My recipe made a LOT of pierogies - I actually packaged half up and froze them (after a quick 2 minute boil). Now I have my own frozen pierogies and they cost a lot less. They did take quite a while to make - about 1.5 hours from start to finish, but next time they will be easy peasy from the freezy.
