I have a weakness for perogies. To me, they are the ultimate comfort food. I try to go easy on the carbs most of the time, but when it comes to perogies, I just can’t help myself. And they make such a quick and easy dinner, so that’s a big bonus right there. If it wasn’t for Cole’s complete hatred for perogies, I would totally make them a lot more often. It doesn’t stop me from making them altogether though. Sometimes I like to play the “I am the cook so I get to decide what’s for dinner” card.
As an ambassador for Campbell’s, I had been eyeing this recipe for Creamy Perogie Dinner from Cook with Campbell’s for a while. I wanted so badly to try it as soon as I saw it, but kept putting it off because I knew Cole wouldn’t like it. But I just couldn’t restrain myself any longer – I had to make this recipe!
I usually just fry up perogies with onions and bacon or sausage, much how this recipe starts off. But then it gets more interesting… You add Campbell’s Condensed Low Fat Cream of Celery and No Salt Added Ready to Use Chicken Broth, so it creates a beautiful silky sauce. Then add salsa for a little heat, and top it off with spinach and parmesan cheese. Oh my! It’s too good.
Cole was spared from the perogies on the first night that we ate them, because Tony had taken the boys out to a Monster Truck show, so it was just us girls. Ayla loved them, and of course, so did I.
The boys got to eat the leftovers the next day. Cole didn’t even realize he was eating perogies at first. “That’s a good disguise you put on the perogies,” he said, “I thought it was chicken!” As soon as he discovered the truth, he wouldn’t eat anymore. The rest of us really enjoyed them though.
Once again, we’ve found a recipe from Campbell’s that’s “Simple to Make, Easy to Love.” Check out all the simple, loveable recipes at Cook with Campbells website.
