BBq Perogies

Neither my mother or Baba barbeque   grilled  their perogies, then again they made their perogies from scratch. I looked at a few directions online for grilling perogies, after I did my own version. Most talk about aluminum foil packs.  They also say to prepare from a frozen state. I prefer the direct route after boiling the perogies.  I boil them up first because the dough has a better consistency when they are then grilled.  I find it is the same if you fry up the store-bought variety, just the same as the home-made ones. Raw or semi-raw dough does not fry or grill up correctly. Mom was right !

Once they are boiled up put them in a bowl and mix in some oil (light olive or canola). Add some of your choice of bbq seasoning and mix up perogies.  Heat up the grill to medium-high and place on the grill. I use a grill topper and that avoids the issue of lost perogies. While the perogies swell up and turn golden brown prepare some sausages. You will need to turn the perogies over once or twice during grilling.

  2. These look great. I used to make perohies from scratch, too, but bbq’ing them never dawned on me. I really love the atmosphere and lighting in your photos.

  5. I love perogies, but would have never thought about putting them on the grill-will definitely be trying this out-these are definitely not Nana’s 😉 though I suspect if she was aware of this option, she might have been game for it-

      Hope you enjoy. This post keeps popping up ( just like the perogies) with activity every time BBQ season starts. 😀 The perogies are crispy golden brown – the my Dad likes them fried up – but not greasy.
