We have two kinds of homemade Perogies for you. Cheddar-Bacon-Potato and for the tangy types Sauerkraut-SourCream & Bacon. Don’t turn your nose up at it until you try it!
With a little work before you head out you’ll have an awesome meal or snack depending on how you look at it. Once you’ve made these Homemade Campfire’d Perogies, you’ll only need to quick fry them up around the campfire to eat when you’re ready! This recipe makes roughly 16-20 Homemade Campfire’d Perogies depending on how you roll out your dough. There is more than enough filling!

-1 Teaspoon Salt
-1 Egg Beaten like it owes you money

-5 Pounds of potatoes
-1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
-Salt & Pepper to taste
-1/4 Pound bacon
-32 oz jar of Sauerkraut
-3 Tablespoons Sour Cream

To Make the Dough
1. Combine the flour salt, the egg you beat to death and water. Mix it up well until it turns to dough. Set it aside for about 45 minutes to let it rise.
1. Peel potatoes and boil them in a pot of water for 25-35 minutes. Remove potatoes when tender and mash them up.
2. Cook your pound of bacon! Crispy, just right… however you want, whatever you like. Let cool and crumble.
3. Stire bacon and cheese into your mashed potatoes!
If you’re still reading this… we applaud you – you daring foodie you.
1. Cook bacon – Again cook it however you like it crispy, black, just right.. your call. Let cool and crumble.
2. Stir in your bacon and Sour Cream with your Sauerkraut.
Once your dough has sat for about 45 mins, roll it out on a cutting board or counter-top, use a lid to a jar to cut out circles for your Perogies. Once you’ve done that, all you need to do is fill half of the Perogies with whatever filling you want and fold the other half over. Make sure you get press the dough edges down to seal in the filling.
The last step before you freeze these babies is to boil them (4-5 Minutes). Boil them first, let them cool then freeze them until you’re ready to head out on your trip.
Enjoy them with friends around the camp fire…
You can add anything you want into a Perogie but this is what we played around with and they were great! We can’t wait to try them in the woods.
