Pierogies Sausage Skillet – take a little shortcut from the store and turn pierogies into a quick and easy hearty meal with your favorite smoked sausage.
I am all about getting together with friends for just about any occasion. Sports, birthdays, tv shows, you name it. Getting together with friends and sharing good food is always a fun time.
Today I am bringing you an easy recipe that is perfect for a busy weeknight or the next time friends are over to watch the big game. A little short-cut from the store makes this pierogies sausage skillet come together in minutes, so there is no stress!
March is here, and you know what that means. Well it can mean spring, sometimes Easter, and spring break. But if you are a sports fan it means time for basketball! March madness is about to be in full swing. And what better thing to do while watching basketball than eat!
Do you fill out brackets for March madness? When I was growing up we filled out brackets every year. Now my son thinks it is super fun to make his picks and track them over the tournament. There are a lot of the games that happen over dinner time, so I wanted to come up with a fun dinner we could have while watching the games.
Pierogies Sausage Skillet comes together in just minutes. You start with a box of frozen Mrs. T’s Pierogies that you cook according to the package directions. I used classic cheddar for this recipe, but it would work with just about all of them. So pick your favorite!
Then you brown your favorite smoked sausage with some onions and onions. Mix them all together with a touch of cream and you have a hearty and great dinner for the whole family!
We have had Mrs. T’s Piergoies in our freezer for years. My husband found them when we were first married, and fell in love. I like that they are made with real, quality ingredients. Like real cheddar cheese. He likes to just toss with a tiny bit of melted butter for a quick meal. Great go-to when you want something that tastes great fast, without a lot of work.
