Pierogi and Sausage with Sauerkraut

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 6-7 servings 1x



2, 16 ounce boxes pierogi – or 24 pierogi

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 large Vidalia onion, sliced thin

12 ounces of smoked sausage of choice (beef, chicken, turkey), sliced into thin coins

1 cup refrigerated sauerkraut (this is the one I use)

Boil the pierogi according to package directions.

In a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and the sliced onions. Saute the onions for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the sausage and saute for an additional 5 minutes.

Add the pierogi, and stir together.

Turn off the heat and spoon the sauerkraut on top. Garnish with fresh cilantro if you have it.
