SAUSAGE AND PIEROGI SOUP — Smoked sausage and miniature pierogies come together with fresh spinach in a creamy broth for a hearty, delicious comfort meal the whole family will love.
I never tried pierogies until I met my Canadian husband in college. Needless to say, they are now a staple in our families diet, and this Sausage and Pierogi Soup is our favorite new way to enjoy them!
If you’ve never tried perogies, imagine a dumpling filled with cheese and mashed potatoes. You can see why they’d be so delicious in this hearty, creamy soup.
With a garnish of crisp bacon bits and a chopped green onions, this soup is a crowd-pleasing meal that’s perfect for a cold day.
This recipe calls for mini perogies, which I found at my local Kroger chain. I didn’t have much luck finding them anywhere else, so I was so happy Kroger came through for me! I used the Mrs. T’s brand.
If you can’t find mini perogies, don’t fear! You can definitely use full-size perogies in this recipe. You’ll just need to cut them in half with the side of your spoon as you eat them. But the soup will taste exactly the same.
I had an inkling this recipe would be well received by my pierogi loving husband and boys, and I was 100 percent correct. They all loved it and came back for seconds.
I’m so glad my future husband introduced me to pierogies all those years ago. This hearty, filling soup is definitely a meal we’ll be enjoying over and over again!
