Homemade Pierogi Recipe

This tasty homemade pierogi recipe has a savory potato filling that is boiled and pan-seared in butter until lightly browned.

These are some of my daughter’s all-time favorite things to eat.


– all-purpose flour – hot water – coarse salt – cooking oil – whisked egg

Sift the flour onto a clean surface and then form a well using your hand. Add in the hot water, salt, and oil, and using a fork, begin to bring the flour into the wet ingredients.

Once the mixture becomes like a thick paste, transfer to using a bench knife, or your hands start to knead the dough just until the flour is hydrated.

Add the whisked egg and knead the dough for 5 to 6 minutes until it becomes smooth. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 to 60 minutes.

While the dough is resting, add 2 tablespoons of butter to a medium-sized frying pan over medium heat and sauté the onions for 4 to 5 minutes or until they begin to turn brown.

Turn the heat down to low-medium and continue cooking for 10 to 12 minutes or until darker brown, tender, and translucent. Set them to the side.
