That’s right. Loaded Pierogies, My take on loaded potato skins.
I “tested” this recipe before that big football game that just passed in which the team that is now dead to me lost. They are the perfect little appetizer. And mighty tasty I might add.
Have you had pierogies? They are Polish dumplings filled with all sorts of things. My favorite… filled with potatoes and cheese.
You can make your own, but good luck with that. I hear they are a pain to make. My Mom always bought Mrs.T’s (no relation to “Mr. T”) in the freezer section. So I do the same. They make my life so much simpler. There is really not much of a recipe, kinda self explanatory, but I will throw one up just for s*its and giggles.
