Pierogies with Sauteed Onions and Kale
1 pkg of your favorite pierogies (I used Mrs T's potato and 4 cheese, found in the freezer section - because that's what my grandmother always bought if she didn't make them homemade)
2 T olive oil for baking, plus 2 T olive oil for sauteing
1 large onion, sliced
1 clove of garlic, minced
salt to taste
8 oz frozen chopped kale
1 pkg of your favorite polish kielbasa (I used a Nitrate free variety I found at whole foods - yummy!)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Using 2 T of olive oil, brush both sides of the pierogies and bake for 20 minutes. Turn them half way through the cooking so that each side gets brown and crispy.
|This is the kind of nitrate free all natural kielbasa I found and it was soooooo yummy!|
|You can hear the sizzle as it hits the pan!|
|Beautifully charred on the outside and so yummy!|
In the same pan, heat the last 1 T of olive oil over medium heat. Saute the onions until golden brown and tender. Add the garlic and allow it to sweat for about 30 seconds.
Add the frozen kale and cook until heated through and kale is tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt to taste.
