Sour cream. Carmelized onions. Homemade Kraut. Gerkins. Pickled beets. Bread and butter pickles. Dill pickles. Pickled red Kraut. More sour cream.

Personally I do not like potato/cheese pierogi, I prefer potato and cheese pierogi separately. Then I would serve potato with fried onions and mushrooms, the cheese kind I make sweet and serve with sour cream and syrup. I know it's not what you were asking Larry. But the potato/ cheese mixture is just hard for me s to imagine what to serve with but melted butter.

Like pot stickers, I like the pierogi with a seasoned lightly browned butter.

Sauteed onions or sour cream are the two ways we've had them at our house. I'm liking some of these other ideas, though. Himself said he does remember his Grandma toasting breadcrumbs in the butter drippings after the pierogi were done being fried. He said it was to make sure the butter didn't get wasted. It only got waisted.

When it comes to the potato-cheese pierogi up here, I'll agree with you right away, Charlie. The local potato variety includes the mild "farmers' cheese", which has very little taste. When I made pierogi (for the first time) last week, I mixed a generous amount of medium-sharp cheddar into the potato filling, along with sauteed minced onions.

I haven't been able to get them here, but "cheese pierogi" back in OH were a sweetened dry cottage cheese. So good! My next attempt at homemade ones will be sweet cheese, along with prune for Himself. I don't like prune lekvar, but I like Himself.

I always pan-fried these with fresh red onion, minced garlic, and butter.

While pan-frying, heat up some tomato sauce or pasta sauce.

Serve them with the sauce and a little bit of sour cream, a sprinkle of fresh basil and sage.

It's yummy! Oh.....I like the other ideas too!
