potato & cheese perogies with bacon & onion
I use my pasta machine to mix my dough, it's a lot easier then mixing it by hand. the dough recipe here makes 3 dozen and I just mix it up as needed till my filling is gone, I believe I get about 12 dozen. after cutting your circles it's easier to work with if you let them rest a few minutes. It's also easier to fill when your potatoes are cold.
How to Make potato & cheese perogies with bacon & onion
- make your filling first.
peel potatoes and quarter and put to boil, cook till tender same as you would for mashed potatoes. Drain and return to pot. smash the potatoes.
- while potatoes are boiling , fry up bacon, when done remove bacon from grease, but do not throw out grease. set bacon aside.
