Brown Butter Sage Pierogies with Pomegranate Gremolata

1.1K

One of my absolute favorite parts of the holidays is when friends or family drop by unexpectedly. There’s an unspoken expectation to crack open a bottle of champagne, or make a cozy cocktail, and serve a little snack. That’s why, during the month of December, I make sure to keep my favorite frozen appetizer, Mrs. T’s Pierogies, in my freezer at all times.

In the spirit of easy yet impressive entertaining, I recently prepared these pierogies by simmering them in sage-infused butter and finishing them with a vibrant pomegranate gremolata. Despite the sophisticated-sounding name, I assure you, it’s a straightforward process that adds a touch of elegance to any occasion. Enjoy this easy recipe that you can whip up for your guests this season.
