Pierogi Ruskie is a traditional Polish dumpling that consists of potatoes, cottage cheese, onions and flour-based dough. The dish is easy to make, you just need to be patient while gluing the dumplings. An extremely delicious dish with a soft, flexible dough and great stuffing, perfect for a typical Polish home lunch 🙂



275 g semi-skimmed curd or cottage cheese (you can, for example, grind with a fork)
500 g potatoes, peeled, boiled, mashed (raw, about 700 g)
1 large onion, peeled, ground with a blender or very finely chopped
2 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon of pepper
½ teaspoon of salt


Add salt and pepper to the potatoes. Fry the onion in butter until it is glass-colored (be careful not to burn it because it will be bitter). Add potatoes. Also add ground curd. Mix all ingredients thoroughly (you can try the stuffing and season it to taste).

Dough for dumplings:


350 g of wheat flour sifted through a strainer
35 g of butter
125 ml of water
1 egg
pinch of salt
flour to sprinkle the countertop


Boil the water and add the butter to it to melt. Add salt to the flour, add a mixture of water and butter, stirring constantly with a spoon. Add the egg and mix the ingredients. Sprinkle flour on the countertop and knead the dough for 5 minutes until uniform. Cover with foil so that it does not dry out and set aside for 30 minutes to let the dough rest. Sprinkle the table top with flour and roll out a piece of dough to a thickness of about 2mm (keep the remaining dough covered so that it does not dry out). Using a glass or a round dish, cut a circle from the dough and put the stuffing on it. Carefully knit the edges together, being careful not to let the stuffing between the dough, because the dumplings may fall apart during cooking. You can put dumplings on the pastry board. During this time, boil the water with a large pinch of salt. When the water is bubbling, add the dumplings in batches. Cook them for 2 minutes after they go up (to be sure, we can make a test for one dumpling and break it to see if it is soft). Serve with fried onions or fried chopped bacon 🙂
