there's the eternal controversy on how placki ziemniaczane (potato pancakes) should be eaten properly

i have eaten them with cream. also my friend dominika serves placki po bieszczadzku with smietana on the top. beautiful. cant imagine sugar on it though..coming back to pierogi subject, mariusz says its very normal to have cream and sugar on savoury pierogi...maybe its just a family recipe?

maybe. just maybe.

placki po bieszczadzku with smietana on the top. beautiful. cant imagine sugar on it though

I believe po bieszczadzku is the same as po węgiersku, meaning with meat and vegetables. If so, sugar doesn't seem appropriate, although Mariusz could be of a different opinion.

But next time when you have plain ordinary placki, do the dangerous thing and try one with just sugar, you might like it :)

hmm, interesting! dominikas pancakes(as i like to call them) have gulasz inside them, with cream and cooked beetroot on the top. maybe i will be adventurous and try normal placki with sugar...am sure i will live!!

there are many variations and many names too. basically, you can put inside anything you find in the fridge, it's one of those dishes. gulasz is fine, also any kind of meat fried with vegetables, or just vegetables. it's sometimes called placek po zbójnicku too.

the sour cream and beetroot thing reminds me of a salad I first had in Russia. just grate a raw beetroot and pour good, thick sour cream over it. you may add salt and pepper too, or crushed walnuts. very simple and fantastic taste.

Merged: Searching for the REAL pierogi recipe

I come from a large polish family. Unfortunately all the wise elders of the family who came directly from Poland and knew the true pierogi recipes have since passed away, and the recipe was never written down. What I want to know from those who, I'm sure, know better than I is what's the true polish (dough) recipe for pierogis? Is it the flour, egg, water, salt concoction or the flour, sour cream mix? Fillings I have down, but I seem to be having a hard time on the dough. Thanks in advance everyone!

I don't think anyone can tell you how your family made the dough.
REAL or TRUE claims will only get people arguing.
Simplest dough is flour and water, then you go from there.

Do you have a recipe for spinach and ricotta?

You just put the spinach and the ricotta inside. I prefer feta (there's a Polish brand called Favita). You can also use chopped black olives.

I found this very old recipe today that my Polish grandma used back in 1922. (Straight from the old country)
I have upgraded this recipe since, however I wanted to share this 90 year old one with you.
Very basic.

Pierogi:
4-5 potatoes - cook & mash - cool, mix in 2 eggs & 2 to 2 1/2 cups flour & 1/2 teas. salt
Shape into 2 or 3 balls, roll out on floured (1 ball at a time) cut into squares.
Drop into pot of boiling water, be sure water keeps boiling.
Water will become murky - don't panic.
Cook until they come to the top - couple of minutes.
Remove from water (dip out into colander) and rinse off with cool water
carefully so they don't fall apart.
Brown in frying pan in butter & cracker or bread crumbs.

She came to America when she was eight years old and didn't know one word of English.
By the time she was sixteen she could speak, read, and write perfect English as well as being
a master in arithmatic.
I remember her little smile with her devil blue eyes telling me to shut up and eat.
