Hey guys!!! Happy Monday and guess what? It’s National Pierogy Day today and I couldn’t be more excited! I totally grew up eating pierogies nonstop like my whole entire life so when there’s a day dedicated to my favorite food I’m going all in. Normally, I’d whip up a batch from scratch but when time is short I turn to my freezer for a box of Mrs. T’s Pierogies.
But this weekend, I took a trip downtown to visit Mac Mart where they’re celebrating the 10th annual National Pierogy Day with these super amazing Macarogies and Cheese! OMG…..you have to get yourself to a Mac Mart stat because they’re simply incredible. Imagine your favorite macaroni and cheese sauce smothering a pile of cheese filled pierogies THEN topped off with caramelized onions, bacon, crispy fried onions and MORE CHEESE.
The special Mac Mart Macarogies and Cheese will be available to celebrate for the entire month of October but if you’re not lucky enough to have a Mac Mart near you I recreated the dish at home using the recipe below. It’s incredibly easy to do with Mrs. T’s Four Cheese Pierogies and I had dinner on the table in just 30 minutes.
To recreate the Macarogies and Cheese at home I used Mrs. T’s Four Cheese Pierogies. The cheese sauce was super quick and simple to make (and I had a ton leftover to drizzle on my scrambled eggs the next day!).
I always have Mrs. T’s Pierogies in my freezer for quick and easy weeknight dinners. These easy Szechuan Style Pierogies are always a hit and such a fun twist on the usual fried pierogies with buttery onions I usually make.
I can’t wait to try this Mini Minestroni Pierogy Soup! It seems like the perfect way to end a chilly fall day. And THESE Mini Pierogy Slider Kabobs are such a great way to kick off a tailgating party!
