Many delicious dishes can be served with Pierogies, but what is the best dish to serve?
Pierogies are a traditional Polish food and come in three different styles: fried, boiled, or baked.
They’re usually filled with mashed potatoes and cheese. You could also find them filled with meat and vegetables like sauerkraut or cabbage.
Pierogies are usually served with a side dish, but what is the best one? The most popular dishes to serve with perogies are kielbasa and sauerkraut.
This Polish sausage goes well because it’s a little salty like cheese would be if you were eating this as an appetizer or snack instead of dinner.
In this blog post, we will discuss what foods to serve with perogies for a delicious meal!
1 – Kale and White Bean Salad
Let’s get started with a salad. Kale and white bean are two of the healthiest foods on earth.
The kale will be crunchy and the white beans are soft, so you’ll get some variety in your meal!
This is also an easy side that can easily feed more people if needed too – just double or triple this recipe for larger groups without much effort at all.
Simply toss the kale and white beans with a little olive oil, salt to taste, some lemon juice for freshness.
2 – Bacon, Cheddar, and Potato Gratin
A classic side dish for pierogies is bacon, cheddar, and potato gratin. It’s a hearty side that will fill you up without weighing down your stomach or making it feel heavy.
The potatoes are sliced thin so they cook quickly in the oven while still being crispy on top when finished cooking. Plus, there’ll be plenty of cheese to go around with this one too (and who doesn’t love some good ol’ fashioned melted butter?).
You can also add in some green onions for a little extra flavor.
3 – Garlic-Butter Roasted Potatoes
The potato is one of the most versatile vegetables and it helps make a filling, nourishing meal that can accompany any dish.
This side dish will be a little more on the indulgent side, but it’s well worth every bite. These potatoes are roasted in garlic butter and topped with fresh parsley for an extra pop of flavor.
The best part about this dish is that you can make them ahead so they’re ready to go when your pierogies come out.
Just be sure not to cook these until right before serving or else all those delicious flavors will have time evaporate into thin air.
4 – Buttered Acorn Squash with Maple Syrup
You simply can’t go wrong with roasted acorn squash. It pairs well because of the sweetness that comes from maple syrup.
This is another one-pan recipe – just be sure not to overcook these guys or they’ll turn into mushy piles on your plate.
Acorn squash has some interesting textures that will help break up all your bites too if you’ve been eating nothing but doughy dumplings this whole time.
5 – Creamy Parmesan Spinach
This spinach recipe is a little more involved than the other side dishes, but it’s worth every minute.
It can be made ahead of time and reheated when you’re ready to serve. Just be sure to add the cheese just before serving so it doesn’t get all stringy and gross.
6 – Potato Pancakes
How’s about some potato pancakes to go with your pierogies?
These are a great option if you’re looking for something that’s not too heavy, and they also make the perfect side dish. They can be served as an appetizer or alongside any meal.
These little guys have some texture from grated potatoes so it’ll break up all those doughy bites of dumplings in between sips. You can add your favorite toppings, or just enjoy them plain.
7 – Cauliflower Cheese Soup
This soup is a great option for those looking to stay warm and cozy. It’s also the perfect dish if you’re not in love with pierogies but still want something that will satisfy your cravings.
This recipe only requires a few ingredients and is simple to cook. You can add some bacon or ham to make it a heartier dish, but the soup is delicious on its own.
8 – Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce
Now, it’s time for a dish that’s a little more on the savory side. Baked beans are one of my favorite dishes because it reminds me so much about home cooking when I was growing up.
This version just takes things over the top by adding all these delicious flavors together. Feel free to add in some bacon or ham to make it a heartier dish, but the beans are delicious on their own.
In conclusion, pierogies are a great dish to serve as the main course for dinner. They’re hearty, filling, and delicious. But they can get even better when you add in some of these side dishes!
I hope this post has given your cravings an idea or two about what might go well with pierogies at home tonight (or any time!).
