Lazy Pierogi

Lazy Pierogi with
Kielbasa Two Ways: Grilled and BBQ Kielbasa

In the middle of the kielbasa cooked two ways  is a buttery dish, we call lazy pierogi.  I have attempted to make pierogis with my Mother, sister, and sister-in-law, but it is a tremendous amount of work and I cannot make dough.  Therefore, I don't even attempt to make pierogis with M.  We opt for lazy pierogi because, well, as the name implies easier than the traditional Polish dumplings.  This is not the healthiest dish, but it reminds us of home. And every once in awhile, we like to be reminded of our mothers' and Bacis' cooking. 

Lazy Pierogi Ingredients:
lots and lots of butter (at least 4 tablespoons)
2-3 large onions, chopped in small pieces
1 bag of egg noodles
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a sauce pan, sauté the chopped onions in butter until transparent. 
2. In a separate pot, boil the egg noodles as directed on the package.
3. Add the cooked noodles to the onions, add more butter, salt and pepper.

The more butter the better.  Again this is not the most nutritious recipe, but the more butter the more authentic this Polish dish will be.  Smacznego!
