Polish Pierogies with Peppers

Quick. Easy. Delicious. For those nights when you really don't feel like cooking. Possibly because you went out the night before. Late. On a work night.

Source: Adapted from Devin Alexander


  • 6 Potato and Cheddar Pierogies (I used Mrs. T's)
  • Olive oil spray ( I use my Misto*)
  • 4 ounces of fully cooked  kielbasa ( I used Hillshire Farms turkey sausage)
  • 1/2 cup sauerkraut ( from a bag or jar....not canned)
  • 1/2 red or yellow bell pepper sliced in strips
  • 1/4 tsp oregano 
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Boil the Pierogies according to directions.

2. Place a nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Mist the pan with the spray and add sausage, sauerkraut, peppers, and seasonings. Cook 4-5 mins until warmed through.

3. Drain Pierogies and place in serving bowl. Top with sausage and sauerkraut mixture.

*Misto Oil Sprayer....much healthier than the cooking sprays you buy in the store. Who wants to eat propellant?
