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.
Easy dinners are a must, and sometimes that means a little help from the store. My goal is to have the family sit around the table and eat together. It doesn’t matter how we get there, just that it happens. And on busy weeknights, when dinner comes together in 15 minutes, it means we have a few minutes to actually sit and talk with each other.
If you like Pierogies, don’t miss how I made them fitting for taco night with Taco Pierogies Skillet.
Dinner doesn’t have to be complicated. If you have a few things in your pantry and freezer, you can get dinner on the table in just a few minutes. I always keep smoked sausage in my freezer for meals like this and Cheesy Sausage Pasta. Almost no planning, and dinner is ready in under 20 minutes.
Years ago my husband discovered Pierogies in the freezer aisle at the grocery store, and they quickly became a staple. They are super versatile, and something we always have on hand.
What Are Pierogies
They are basically a potato filled dumpling. The wrapper is a simple unleavened dough that you wrap around different fillings. You can then steam, boil or even pan fry them to cook. They came to the US from Eastern Europe and are very popular in the Mid-West.
There are tons of recipes out there for homemade versions, but they are quite a lot of work. So I like to use the store bought ones for busy nights.
What You’ll Need
- Olive Oil
- Chicken Broth
- Heavy Cream
- Salt & Pepper
- Green Onions
How To Make Pierogies Sausage Skillet
- Start by cooking the pierogies according to the package instructions.
- Meanwhile in a large skillet heat the butter and oil together. Once it is melted and hot add the onions and sliced sausage. Cook for a few minutes until the sausage starts to brown and the onions are soft.
- Add in the garlic and cook for about a minute until you can just start to smell it.
- Add the cooked and drained pierogies to the skillet and gently stir to evenly mix everything together.
- In a small bowl whisk together the chicken broth and cornstarch. Pour into the skillet and bring to a boil. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the sauce starts to thicken.
- Pour in the heavy cream and let it cook for just a minute to warm through.
- Taste and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle green onions over the top and serve.
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 like to use the classic cheddar variety for this recipe, but it would work with just about all of them. So pick your favorite!
You could even mix in cheese or use chicken instead of sausage. Use this as a guide and see what you have on hand to make it your own on a busy weeknight.
