Pierogies and Bacon

This is a quick easy meal I like to make during the week. It's delicious, maybe not so healthy, but not THAT bad for you... especially when you use the lower fat version of things.

I'd love to learn how to make homemade pierogies, but for now I'll settle for the pre-made kind.

This makes 4 servings of 6 pierogies each.

24 frozen pierogies of your choice (I like cheese and potato)
1 medium onion (chopped)
1 pkg of reduced salt bacon
2 cups light sour cream (fat free gets a bit too runny, so light is better)

Start by cooking your bacon over medium-high heat in a large frying pan. Once the bacon is done, place it onto a plate lined with paper towel to soak up the grease.

Drain the bacon fat from the pan (don't worry about getting all of it out), make sure you wipe the bottom of the pan so you don't have a fire on your hands! Place the pan on the stove and turn the heat down to medium-low, toss the onions in there and cook them until they begin to get fragrant.

While the onions are cooking boil your pierogies.

When the pierogies are about a minute away from being done, toss the bacon back in the pan and stir in the sour cream.

Drain the pierogies, and toss them into the bacon / sour cream / onion mixture and coat the pierogies well.
