Wheat Pierogies with Asparagus & Shallots

A delicious and decadent dinner sure to impress anyone! This recipe comes together in about an hour and a half of hands on time but is sooo worth every minute. You can easily double the recipe and freeze half for a future meal. This recipe could be made with all-purpose flour if you aren’t a fan of whole wheat flour. You can also throw in some ham or bacon to make this a meatier meal but these pierogies don’t need any extras to stand out 😉. Alright, let’s get to it!👇


Ingredients for about 30 pierogies:

  • 2 Cups of Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Cup of Sour Cream
  • 1 Stick of Butter, Room Temp
  • 1 Potato, Cooked & Peeled
  • 1/2 Cup Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Shallot, Diced
  • 1 Cup of Asparagus, Cut into 1″ Pieces
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Mix flour, egg, sour cream, 1/2 stick of butter & pinch of salt together in large mixing bowl. Begin working the dough on a clean countertop without adding flour, kneading with your fingers, until a non-sticky ball forms.
  2. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile mix potato, cheese & salt & pepper to taste in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  4. Remove dough and roll on clean floured surface into a very thin sheet. Do 1/2 of the dough at a time, your arms will thank you! Thin dough is the key here, think millimeters.
  5. Cut dough into 2″ rounds with a cup. Fill each round with about 1-1.5 tsp of potato mixture. Pinch edges and press closed with a fork.
  6. Bring a large salted pot of water to a boil and add pierogies in 8-10 piece batches. When they float, remove from water and onto plate. About 5 minutes per batch.
  7. Once all pierogies are cooked, melt 1/2 stick of butter in a large pan over medium high heat, add shallots and cook for about 2 minutes then add asparagus, piergoies and season with salt & pepper. Cook for about 10 minutes, flipping frequently.
  8. Once pierogies begin to crisp, they are ready to eat. Enjoy!
