Mrs. T’s Cheddar Potato Pierogies

Pierogies, those classic German/Polish half-moon-shaped dumplings, are the next big small plate in town. You can now find them stuffed with everything from smoked pig tails (Russell House Tavern) to sausage and hazelnuts (Bokx 109) to lobster and cabbage (American Seasons on Nantucket). Take the trend straight to your kitchen with the help of a box of frozen Mrs. T’s cheddar-potato pierogies, then dress them up like a pro with these seriously creative tips from three local chefs.
