My roomie celebrates ukrainian Christmas and her family always makes peirogies for dinner. So we set out to do our own Ukrainian Christmas dinner.
Liz doesn’t do well with onions. They made her cry something fierce.
The dough is almost the same as pasta dough. You mix it all right on the counter.
And the knead it forever and ever. It took a really long time to get it to the right consistency.
I made the sauerkraut. I have never done that before. I have also never eaten it before. It was good! Of course I made it with Guinness. Yum. Guinness makes everything yummy.
We rolled out the dough and cut circles.
We then filled the circles with a delicious mashed potato and cheese mixture.
They turned out so cute.
Liz loved making them!
We pan-fried some kielbasa. I haven’t had it in forever. My grandma used to make it for us.
Then fried the pierogies with some onions and garlic. Then everything goes into a pan all together. sauerkraut, kielbasa, & pierogies. We popped it in the oven for a few minutes to make sure everything was warm.
Dinner is served!
