Cheese and Potato Perogi Filling

Cheese and potato filling is what’s in the traditional Polish dumplings, perogi (aka pierogi ruskie), and it’s what’s most common in typical grocery shops. I like it a lot because it complements the flavor of the dough very well and is quite easy to make.

Ingredients

  • Large potato, peeled and cubed 1
  • Large onion, finely chopped 1
  • Grated cheddar cheese ¼ cup 65 ml

    You can use other kinds of cheeses or mixes of several if you’d like. I usually use gouda, simply because it’s what I keep on hand.

  • Salt, pepper and/or other spices to taste

Directions

  1. Sautee your onion in butter until it’s soft and translucent.
  2. At the same time, boil the potato until cooked, then drain.

    Not sure when they’re cooked? When a butter knife or a fork go through the largest pieces without any resistance, they’re ready.

  3. While they’re still hot, mash the potatoes together with the cheese and onion.
  4. Season the filling to taste. If it tastes good on it’s own, it’ll be good inside the perogi. :)
