Pork belly, leek and cranberry perogies

By now you must be wondering about this perogie series. You must be thinking to yourself: “That’s all good Sophie, but the real question is, where’s the bacon?”

Pork, leek cranberry perogies

Well, here it is!

Pork belly and leek

Bacon is a classic perogie addition. I thought I would take things a step further and use a little pork belly.

Sauteeing the pork belly

Simply because I had some in my fridge that needed to be eaten up. Not really enough to make any other dish with, but enough not to let it go to waste!


I also had some leeks lying around.

Sauteeing everything

The addition of cranberry was purely coincidental.

Filling ready to go

It literally fell into my hands.

Frying up the perogies

When I opened the freezer door, a bag of cranberries fell out, and I had one of those ah-ha moments. Ah ha!

I topped these perogies with a little of the applewood-smoked cheddar from the Apple/Cabbage perogies I had just finished making.

All of the perogies

I made four kinds of perogies in one day, remember?
