PIEROGI Croquette DIRECTIONS
1. PREPARE PIEROGI. Boil pierogi in a large pot of salty water for 6-7 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon on to a large plate to cool.
2. PREPARE EGG MIXTURE. Mix eggs until they are fluffy in a bowl. Set next to pierogi plate.
4. PREPARE Breadcrumbs. You can buy seasoned breadcrumbs or make your own. Add salt, pepper, chili powder, and your favorite herbs--oregano, thyme, basil--any herb will work. Just make sure to use small breadcrumbs. Don't go for the panko style of breadcrumbs or is will be too thick. You just want a thin layer.
5. Pan Fry. Get a large fry pan and have enough oil to cover the bottom of the entire pan, turn to high. Use an oil that has a high smoke point such as Rice Bran oil or Avocado Oil for the best flavor and health. Once oil is hot, you are ready to go. Dip the cooled pierogi in the egg mixture first, then breadcrumbs and place on the hot fry pan. Fry till they are brown and crispy on each side.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce!
