Pierogi (also commonly spelled perogi) are Eastern European dumplings that are filled and then either boiled, baked or fried. As with other dumplings found around the world pierogi vary with each chef and can be stuffed with sweet or savory fillings.

The following recipe is my family's take on loaded baked potato skins. The beauty of this appetizer is that you can load them up with whatever you would like: cheese, bacon, sour cream, salsa, chili, guacamole, you name it.
