I made this last night. I hadn’t tried Pierogies before, but had tried dishes that were similiar and liked them. I had heard of them, I received some Mrs. T’s coupons at a National Jaycees convention. I just wasn’t able to find them in the stores in Denver at the time.
I recently saw a box of Mrs T’s Pierogies in the freezer section and bought them. I now of course can’t remember in which store I bought them!
I baked the Pierogies per the directions on the box and made this mushroom sauce for them:
6 medium sized mushrooms
4 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1/8 cup water (guess)
Slice mushrooms, chop shallots and saute in olive oil. Add chicken broth. Mix flour and water in a cup to make a white sauce add to pan. Salt to taste.
Points: 2.5 per serving for sauce
I found ideas for this sauce on the Mrs. T’s site and 3 Fat Chicks site.
I looked up information on Pierogies:
While on Wikipedia, I thought it would be fun to look up Weight Watchers:
It includes history, the points formula and some links.
This site has a list of Weight Watcher pro and cons:
This site has some analysis of the patented or patent-pending formula:
