Perogies..question

My Great Grandma was full German so I've had perogies several times growing up and they were similar to a potsticker. 

I went out to dinner the other night to a Polish place and we ordered perogies for an appetizer and they were shaped like the ones of my youth but they were like little deep fried pies filled with mozzarella.  Yummy, little fried pies but fried pies just the same.  So, my question..when you have perogies what are yours like??

There is many types of perogies, I do love  the Polish ones and I have gotten then fried, deepfried, boiled, steamed and baked and with all kinds of stuffings.  They exist in other cultures too and here in Sweden they are often filled with a meat and tomato sauce.

I do love them and I  make   them here at home,  Next week I am having Ear soup, which is a vegitable soup with meatfilled boiled perogies  and for starter I will use the same pirogies but fried and with sour cream.

Thanks ladies.  I thought the ones served in the restaurant were odd.  They were like mozzarella sticks shaped like perogies..weird.  Ours were supposed to be potato/cheese.  They had a few pan fried onions on the side by the sour cream.

All the photos are the ones I grew up with as well.

I had never heard of them before joining the Q and E world.  I have still never had one.  I have never heard anyone talk about them here, just on Q and E.  I assume we have them prepackaged in the store, but I have never seen them before.  But I have never looked either.  They look really good.  Unless of course they had tons of onion in them.  Or Sandy made me some with sauerkraut.  Yuck.

My Mom made them a lot for us when we were growing up.  She is French but learned to make them from my Dad's Mom (her MIL).  Sauerkraut, potato, potato onion, potato sauerkraut, prune, cheese potato, even blueberry.  She would boil them and then lightly saute them in butter just to crisp them up a bit.  Always had them on Easter or whenever she would make a traditional Polish dinner for my Dad.  There is a large Polish population in our area and for a fundraiser the nuns at the Polish churches make them and sell to the public.  They are really good and taste like my Mom's.  I have never made them from scratch.  I will either buy them from the nuns or buy the frozen Mrs. T's brand.
