My Husband’s Pyrogy Recipe for #Movember

Scan 110620002It’s November… or as we all know now Movember. The month that men across the globe do not shave. Why? Men’s health! Jason has a family history with Prostate Cancer & just as early detection in Breast Cancer (yeh, we still think ‘pink’ in November too) finding Prostate Cancer early is a life saver as well.

Take this moment to ask your loved one to get a check up!   ….I’m waiting…  …It’s ok…  …GO, go ask them!

(VIDEO how too with appearance from my #Newfoundland puppy, George)

OK, with that done, I thought what better time to feature one of my husbands recipes. Yes, I got my hockey playing husband to cut a cooking video for me. (Guys go easy on him) Ladies, you’ll love it!

When I first started dating Jason, he was playing hockey and would make homemade pasta, piled high on game days. He is no stranger to the kitchen. He also does a GREAT shepard’s pie (his Dad’s family was Irish-Canadian), a mean breakfast, grill master and pyrogy maker… WHAT? Yep, Jason makes his Ukrainian-Canadian grandmother & grandfather’s pyrogies from scratch! They are something we always have in the freezer, so that when you need a quick meal, you can just pop them in boiling water and eat in 10 minutes. Everyone loves them, I mean who doesn’t love melt in your mouth pasta, cheese and potatoes? Why even a Southern gal like myself, from South Carolina & Mississippi- who had never heard of a “pyrogy” loves those ingredients. When trying to research them i found out they were spelled a million different ways? Ex: perogipierogyperogy,pierógipyrohypirogipyrogie, or pyrogy

So, try something new… or grab a recipe from your own childhood.

My favorite way to serve them is just boiled, salted and sourcream for dipping. There are other ways though: topped with gravy, boiled then fried in butter and onions, You can also add bacon bits to the stuffing.


3 cups flour (all purpose)

1/4 cup oil

1 teaspoon salt

—mix till “velvety”—

work 1 cup of cold water in, until dough forms

cover and let sit for an hour



5 pound bag of potatoes (peeled quartered & boiled in salted water)

Drain (after they are soft)


Add 16-24 oz Sharp Cheddar

Mash & mix more

    Hi– This is sort of surreal– Jason is my cousin! My mom, Marge, sent me this link, and I have to say, I would never have recognized him. How funny he married a Kimberly! His sister Kimi and I were super close when we were teens. Hi Jason! I remember your mom’s perigees- yummy! I might have to make some myself. I like to cook a lot too. Would love to reconnect! I’m married, live in LA, have 2 kids of my own, 6 and 8. Hope all is well!

    I’m looking forward to trying this recipe – can already tell these will taste better than the frozen ones I’ve been buying. Nice change seeing Jason in front of the camera.

    I have to say, that is the strangest (pyrogy) pierogi recipe I have ever seen. The difference between Ukranian and Polish versions is amazing. The do look good though.
