Pierogi may not be easy to make, but they’re easy to cook. They can be served simply boiled once or twice, or fried – perhaps after having been breaded with bread crumbs or crackers. Although they reheat fantastically, they do not take to that greatest reheating mechanism of all time: the microwave. If you want to eat pierogi like a true Pole, serve them with sour cream.
