Nancy J.'s Story

I forgot who gave me this easy recipe. I in think Chgo.About 1989.
It sure takes the work out of making them from scratch. If you like pierogies, you might like to try this recipe.
I have made them many times.... and the family can't get enough of them Warning: For a family of 4 , you might want to double the recipe!

Ingredients

2 slice
bacon, cooked and crumbled
1-1/2 c
sliced onions
2 medium
russet potatoes about 4 oz each
1/2 c
cheddar cheese
25
wonton skins

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a skillet over heat, cook bacon 4 minutes.
Remove from skillet, drain, and crumble.
Add 1/2 cups of sliced onions to bacon dripping in skillet. Cook 10 minutes on medium heat. Remove and save.
In a bowl, combine, combine the 2 potatoes that have been boiled, peeled and mashed, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and the crumpled bacon.
Brush water over the edges of 25 wonton skins.
Divide potato mixture evenly among center of the wrappers. Fold each wrapper over filling to form a triangle, press to seal.
Working in batches, cook perogies in boiling water 4 minutes..or until they float.
Remove and top with the cooked onions.
Cut up fresh green onions cut up and tossed over the perogies is a nice touch.

Some people like to fry them gently in butter....when they are done.

I have not made them yet. So many recipes, so little time! :) I do want to try these because my son and I could live on perogies! I am thinking that the next time I make my make ahead mashed potatoes that it would make an excellent filling for this recipe! I think it is genius to use the wrappers!

They`re ok. Skins are thin and fragile. Good if you`re in a hurry, but wouldn`t serve them to company.
