One head of Cabbage thin sliced add to a large pot.Cover the Cabbage with just enough water,bring to a boil add a little salt check for tenderness then drain.
Cabbage boiled

I drain into a towel to squeeze out as much water as possible

Onions get thin sliced saute in butter

While Onions are getting cooked ring out the water

That was still pretty hot when I did it.
Let it cool more so you can handle it
Add Cabbage into the Onions a little at a time

Mix well
I refrigerate over night

Point for sure

Awesome!!! My grandmothers used to make homemade pierogies with sauerkraut and potato. Put melted butter and caramelized onions over the top after they were boiled. MMM, MMM, MMM!!!! Brings back memories!!!

Those look great Richie! Never tried the cabbage and onion ones but will now. Our go to was potato and onion (with or without cheese) and yo are right when you say they don't last long!

Very nice. Bev and I love the Cabbage and Onion Pierogi! I have had the Sauerkraut and Dried Mushroom version and not really crazy about them. My family likes Potato with Sharp American Cheese. The brand I like best is COOPER SHARP. I dont know if they nationally distribute. A 2 to 1 blend of SLICED American Cheese, not that crap you peel plastic off of, and a good Ex-Sharp Cheddar works too. Your dough is similar to mine so I know the recipe is a good one. We make 12 Cup of Flour Batches to feed my crew and Freeze enough for another meal.
Have you ever tried the Cabbage and Onions Fried until Brown, like for Halushki? The combo gets very tender and Sweeter...JJ

Looks real good Richie! There’s so many churches around here that make and sell them, plus my nana is still making her own well into her 90s....so I have never bothered making my own yet.

But I’d like to start before all the old recipes get lost.

Sweet! Those look real good Richie! I sure could eat a pile of 'em.

I agree with JJ about the fried cabbage and onions! This is a regular side at my house. I make it in a little sesame oil though and add toasted sesame seeds. Its Asian inspired, but Ill bet that would be good wrapped up as a pierogi (Gyoza, egg roll, dumpling or whatever other name)

Definitely get with Grandma and anyone else that makes stuff you like. I started,very young as Grandma's Helper. Most of her stuff I can reproduce...BUT...I just can't make Meat Ravioli like her! I know the ingredients but they just don't taste like her's. My Mom and her brothers and sisters are all gone and my cousins are in the same boat...JJ

Funny, I was telling my Wife about your's, she said we need to try just wilting the Cabbage and Onions. Would have more texture. My Dad favored a slightly sweetened Farmers Cheese version, his Mom made. The Farmers Cheese, Frienship is the only brand i evee saw, resembles a drier version of Ricotta...JJ

These look so very good! Do you just mix all the dough ingredients together in the mixer?
