Product Review: Peter and Pat’s Pierogies

I was recently at Costco with my mom and I got sucked in by the demo ladies.  This is not a surprise.  I think part of why people go to Costco is BECAUSE OF the demo ladies.  Amiright????  Anyway.  There was a demo for the four varieties of Peter and Pat’s Pierogies and I ate bites of all four.  Then more bites.  Then more bites.  Then I left.  And came back.  And decided to buy a bag.  Which means I needed more bites.  In my defense, they had cut each small pierogi into about 4-5 pieces, so it’s not like I consumed *that* much.

I ended up getting potato and onion, but they also have: potato and cheddar, potato and spinach, and potato, jalapeno and cheddar.  Let me tell you, it was very, very hard to make up my mind.

I have never made pierogi at home before, and I am sure they taste better than store bought, yadda yadda yadda, but who cares?  If it’s good, it’s good.  Also, after making them for the first time last week, I turned to my trusted friend, Wikipedia, and learned that pierogi is the plural.  I also learned that there is not really one country that it is pinpointed to, however there are variations over several European countries, primarily Poland.  I will spare you the rest of what I learned on Wikipedia during that search…but if you’re curious, ask my husband.  I recited it all to him. 😉

If you’re curious, I pan-fried mine with just a touch of oil, and then added just another touch of oil on top with some garlic powder.  Divine.  If you are not a fan of pan-frying, there are also instructions on the package for baking, boiling, deep-frying, and I think at least one other way…

Bottom line: buy these the next time you see them at Costco (they are available during roadshows).  Or see if they are available for purchase online.  You will not be sorry!
