Pierogi? Nah, Pierogies.
Note: this is a BzzReport. I am a member of the website, Bzzagent.com, which gives me free samples and coupons to create, well, Buzz about products. Today we are talking about Mrs. T’s Pierogies for BzzAgent.
Pierogies. Hard to spell. Delicious to eat. Where have they been my whole life? Or, more aptly, why didn’t I try them until this campaign? Basically, a pierogi is a dumpling filled with potato and another filling, usually cheese, but they can have other things. Mrs. T’s goes with the Potato & Cheese for the most part but have a TON of varieties. See them here.
Instead of a history lesson, let’s just get down to brass tacks. They are delicious. They are easy to make. They are not that calorie laden. They make a meal. They make a side dish.
Preparation: There are numerous ways to prepare the pierogies. I have cooked them in the oven and sauteed them in a pan. I recommend using a cast iron skillet and throwing some olive oil in there. Cook over medium to medium high heat for about 7-10 minutes stirring and flipping constantly until a light, golden browning has formed. Then eat!
Taste: Wonderful. The outer shell has a great texture to it and a good chew. The filling is not second rate. It is real potato and cheese in there. And it’s high quality. It is one of those tastes that you start to crave. It’s a great blend and mix and ratio of the potato to the cheese so every bite has such a unique “mouth feel” to it.
Nutrition: Surprisingly good. If you are doing Weight Watchers, you can have about half of the package for 11 points. That ain’t too shabby. Pair it with a 3 oz breast of chicken and a salad? Boom. You got a great dinner.
Price: Under $4. Dinner for 2 for under $4.
Should you buy this? Yes. Yes you should.
Should I buy this? Going to Kroger tonight to get more. It’s now become a weekly thing in our house.
