Pierogi's with Spinach and Feta cheese are now available by Mrs. T in the frozen aisle. 4 Pierogi are 180 calories, 1 sugar, and 31 carbs. I add a side of Green Beans and some sour cream for a great dinner. I fry them to make them crisp, but they can be boiled or baked as well.
Can be used as a side with pork or lamb and ontop of salads
I have a HealthZone grill (think Foreman "Wannabe" Grill) and they are awful to clean! I wrapped a piece of frozen salmon (works with Tilapia too) in foil and placed it in the heated up grill and cooked 5 minutes - then flipped the package and cooked another 5 minutes. Moist and delicious! No mess!
Try with chicken, beef and/or pork too! 4
