Save the Date: October 8 is National Pierogy Day!
By Cooking Panda
Move over pumpkin spice; there’s another food trend in town: pierogies. Oct. 8, 2017, marks the ninth annual National Pierogy Day! You can bet pierogy-lovers across the country will be celebrating by enjoying the delicious combination of creamy whipped potatoes and other flavorful ingredients, like aged cheddar cheese, folded into a pasta shell.
Mrs. T’s Pierogies, America’s largest producer of frozen pierogies, takes great pride in celebrating this national holiday. In fact, it was on Oct. 8, 1952, when the son of Mary Twardzik– the real Mrs. T — sold the very first samples of Mrs. T’s Pierogies to his local grocery store in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania. Now, more than 60 years later, Mrs. T’s Pierogies produces 600 million pierogies a year — enough pierogies to wrap around the globe, plus another 1,000 miles.
Pierogies may be considered a traditional dish, but long gone are the days of just the classic butter-and-onions preparation. From delicious finger foods to crave-worthy dinners, Mrs. T’s Pierogies has created tasty recipes that are perfect for the big game, the premiere of your favorite TV show or a casual weeknight get-together with friends. With more than 15 different pierogy varieties to choose from — including new Garlic & Parmesan and Five Cheese Pizza — it’s easy to put a creative spin on your favorite recipes.Mrs. T's Pierogies, Pierogies
