Homemade pierogi or hot pockets are a real treat. Here, with lots of delicious mushrooms, bacon, spinach, and cheese but you can fill them with just about anything you like.



  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 75 g mushrooms
  • 150 g bacon
  • 50 g fresh spinach
  • 50 g parmesan cheese, grated
  • 150 g cream cheese
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Pierogi dough

  • 60 g almond flour
  • 30 g coconut flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 175 g shredded cheese
  • 75 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 beaten egg, for brushing the top of the pierogi


  1. Start with the filling. Sauté shallot, garlic, bacon, mushrooms, and spinach in butter until they have turned a nice color. Salt and pepper.
  2. Lower the heat and add cream cheese and parmesan cheese. Stir and let simmer for another minute. Set aside and let cool.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
  4. Melt the butter and cheese together in a pan on low heat. Stir thoroughly for a smooth batter. Remove from the heat.
  5. Crack the egg into the mixture and keep stirring. Add the dry ingredients and mix into a firm dough.
  6. Divide the dough into four balls and use a rolling pin to flatten them into four round pieces, about ⅕ inch (½ cm) thin and 7 inches (18 cm) in diameter.
  7. Apply a generous amount of filling on each piece of dough, but only on one half of each piece.
  8. Fold and seal the edges with a fork or your fingers.
  9. Brush with a beaten egg and bake for 20 minutes until the pierogis turn golden.
  10. Serve with a salad and dressing.



You can keep the pierogis in the freezer. This is the same delicious cheese dough as in our bread twists and hot-dog rolls.
