Pierogi and Potato Pancake Platter

The following recipe and photography was provided by Christina Musgrave of Tasting with Tina.

With the Lenten season finally here, this homemade take on the traditional pierogi and potato pancake combo will be a hit with the whole family.

Pierogi and Potato Pancake Platter

Typically, those who opt out of seafood at traditional fish fries are offered pierogis and potato pancakes as an alternative meatless dish. If you’re not able to make it to a fish fry, Heinen’s makes it extremely easy to recreate the same flavors at home.

Conveniently frozen, Heinen’s premade pierogis pair perfectly with freshly fried potato pancakes. My family loves serving this on a large platter with plenty of sour cream and green onions.
