how to reheat perogies

Reheating pierogies (also known as perogies) is easy and can be done using various methods. Here are a few options:

1. Boiling:

Ingredients and Equipment:

  • Leftover pierogies
  • Large pot of boiling water
  • Slotted spoon or strainer


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil.
  2. Carefully add the leftover pierogies to the boiling water. You can add them directly from the refrigerator or freezer.
  3. Boil the pierogies for about 3-5 minutes, or until they float to the surface. Fresh pierogies will take less time to cook, while frozen ones may require a bit longer.
  4. Once they float, remove the pierogies from the water using a slotted spoon or strainer. This ensures they don’t overcook or become too soft.
  5. Drain the pierogies briefly, and they are ready to serve. You can enjoy them plain or with your favorite sauce, toppings, or sautéed onions.

2. Pan-Frying:

Ingredients and Equipment:

  • Leftover pierogies
  • Butter or oil (for frying)
  • Skillet or frying pan


  1. Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium heat and add a small amount of butter or oil. You can use butter for a richer flavor or oil for a crisper texture.
  2. Place the leftover pierogies in the hot skillet in a single layer, making sure they don’t overlap.
  3. Cook the pierogies for about 2-4 minutes per side, or until they turn golden brown and develop a crispy exterior. Turn them over halfway through the cooking time.
  4. Once both sides are nicely browned and crispy, remove the pierogies from the skillet and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil or butter.
  5. Serve the pierogies while they are hot and crispy. You can add your preferred toppings or dipping sauce.

3. Oven Baking (for larger batches):

Ingredients and Equipment:

  • Leftover pierogies
  • Baking sheet
  • Cooking spray or melted butter (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Place the leftover pierogies on a baking sheet. You can lightly grease the baking sheet with cooking spray or melted butter to prevent sticking and add extra flavor.
  3. Bake the pierogies in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until they become hot and crispy. The exact time may vary depending on the size and thickness of the pierogies.
  4. Once they are heated through and have a desired level of crispiness, remove the pierogies from the oven.
  5. Serve immediately with your preferred toppings or sauces.

Reheating pierogies using any of these methods should help maintain their delicious flavor and texture. Whether you choose boiling, pan-frying, or oven baking, you can enjoy your pierogies as a tasty and satisfying meal or side dish.
