To me, fall is all about gathering with your favorite people to make memories over food. These Apple Pierogy Bites with Crème Fraîche are a simple appetizer that embodies the flavor of autumn with plenty of comfort to spare.
If you’re unfamiliar with pierogies, you’re in for the tastiest surprise of your life. Imagine a ravioli-like pasta pouch that’s stuffed with creamy whipped potatoes and Cheddar cheese… that’s a pierogy. If that sounds to you like it would be the best thing ever, you’d be right. Mrs. T’s Pierogies is my go-to brand for whenever I have a craving that just won’t quit (try them, and you’ll get the cravings, too). I love their pierogies because you can use them in everything from fun appetizers like this one to hearty dinners that the whole family will love. They use real, quality, and simple ingredients and have more than 15 varieties – including mini pierogies like the four cheese medley I used in this recipe!
My inspiration for this dish was two-fold. First of all, I LOVE apple and cheddar together. If you’ve never tried an apple pie with cheddar in your crust, trust me, it’s life-changing. Secondly, I wanted to do a play on potato latkes that are served with Crème Fraîche and apple. The result is an appetizer that’s so unique and flavorful, they’ll be the hit of any party.
Today, Mrs. T’s are celebrating their 10th annual National Pierogy Day, and I will certainly be celebrating along with them. No matter what day of the year it is, whether you’re hosting a fancy dinner party or cheering on your favorite football team at home, Mrs. T’s Pierogies will make your get-together shine.
