"In our area perogies are a given over the holidays, homemade ones are for the most part make aheads and frozen. Getting the perogies to the table takes one lot of kitchen time when cooking for a crowd. The first making had me unsure but the end result impressed. Cooking perogies for large gatherings and potlucks is super easy using a crock pot. For bought perogies buy a good brand, assure each is buttered, this recipe is so good everyone will be surprised to find you didn’t make them yourself or spend the day in the kitchen."

Step 4

Crock pots like ovens vary, yours may see them done in less time or take longer.

Step 5

Once cooked turn on low to keep warm.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Followed your instructions (good brand, 5 quart pot, rearranging) and they began to turn to stick together at about hour 2 so I pulled them apart, pan fried them and then put them back in. They turned out very yummy! Not sure what I did wrong but wondered if you had any pointers. I think when I make them again I'll use the new "casserole" size crockpot so that they do not overlap. Thanks Gerry!
