A square- or crescent-shaped dumpling of unleavened dough, stuffed with sauerkraut, cheese, mashed potatoes, cabbage, onion, meat, or any combination of these, or with a fruit filling.
Origin: From pierogi, pieróg, or пироги, пиріг.
Pierogi are dumplings of unleavened dough – first boiled, then they are baked or fried usually in butter with onions – traditionally stuffed with potato filling, sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese, or fruit. Of central and eastern European provenance, they are usually semicircular, but are rectangular or triangular in some cuisines. The Polish word pierogi is plural; the singular form pieróg is rarely used, as a typical serving consists of several pierogi. Pierogi are similar to the Russian pelmeni or Ukrainian varenyky and are not to be confused with pirozhki or a pirog. Polish pierogi ruskie are similar to the Ukrainian varenyky in version with potatoes and cottage cheese.
