Ingredients

  • 1 box frozen pierogi around 16.9 ounces
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 12 oz pkg smoked sausage
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the frozen pierogi according to the packages instructions.
  • Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add the olive oil & butter. Add the sausage & onion, tossing them to coat. Cook, stirring ocassionally, for 5 minutes or until the sausage has browned and the onions are tender & just beginning to caramelize.
  • Stir in the garlic and let it saute for about 60 seconds- just until you can smell it.
  • Add the pierogi to the skillet, cooking and stirring until they've begun to brown a bit.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the broth and cornstarch together until the mixture's smooth. Don't leave any lumps behind. Pour the mixture into the skillet, and bring the broth to a simmer.
  • Let the mixture simmer, for two to three minutes, until it's noticeably thickened and clings to the back of a spoon.
  • Whisk in the cream, stirring until it's completely incorporated in the sauce. Let the sauce heat through, and remove the skillet from heat.
  • Garnish with freshly sliced green onions or fresh parsley, and a bit of Parmesan cheese (optional). Ladle onto plates and enjoy!
