Perogies Stuffed with Pumpkin, Bacon, Potato and Cheese

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.


Zach and I have both attempted to make handmade perogies before. Fortunately for Zach, his turned out delicious, mine on the other hand fell into a big heaping pile of potato goo. Yesterday, I decided to take another stab at it. Success was on my side this time. With a little bit of patience and know how, these little dumplings weren’t as hard to make as they were the first time! The end result was unbelievable and the beer pairing was magical! So how do you get delicious perogies without opening a bag of Mrs. T’s or being 100% of polish descent? Well, you just try! With local pie pumpkins grown at our CSA farm and a touch of bacon and cheese, these potato pockets were to die for. So if ever you doubt yourself at making something handmade, give it a try first. If it doesn’t come out right the first time, you can only get better and you will be so pleased with the results!


Crabtree’s Chunkin Pumpkin!

Because we used a ton of pumpkin in the filling for these perogies, it was only natural that we pair it with a pumpkin beer. We decided to take a page out of our own pumpkin beer review and go with a super “pumpkiny” beer. We went with Crabtree Brewing’s Chunkin Pumpkin for two obvious reasons. First, because it got second in our pumpkin tasting and second, because they used the same pumpkins we did! Crabtree gets their pumpkins from the same CSA we get ours, so the pumpkins in the beer and the pumpkin in the perogie filling were from the same patch! It only made sense! Of course, any sweet pumpkin beer will probably do, and chances are, if you don’t live near Boulder, CO, you won’t be able to get your hands on this delicious brew, but if you can, take advantage of it! It’s that good!
