Sauerkraut & Mushroom Perogies?

s

Where can I purchase Sauerkraut & mushroom perogies here in Toronto? Someone purchased a bag for me at a Polish store really far away and I'm looking for a place to purchase this, perferably in the North York (Sheppard & Yonge) area. The brand they brought me is Wisla, but any good brand will do.

Thanks.

    The Supreme brand at Bruno's are the pits. The best brand available is "S&A Grandma's Food Inc.
    416-679-8444.
    Phone them & ask where their Perogies are sold.
    I buy the "Perogies with Sauerkraut & Mushrooms" at la Rose Deli.
    50 perofies for $6.00
    The dough and filling is fantastic.

      The Sosnickis, farmers who sell their organic produce at farmers' markets in Toronto, grow their own cabbage, make their own sauerkraut, and create wonderul perogies. Their sauerkraut perogies are not mixed with mushrooms, but are delicious nonetheless. They also sell a potato-and-cheddar version.

      During the winter, you can find them at Dufferin Grove Farmers' Market on Thursdays from 3 till 7, and at the new Wychwood Green Barn Farmers' Market on Saturdays from 9 AM till noon.

        We used to get some from a local ukranian church fundraiser (St. Demetrius). Handmade and tasty. Otherwise the strecth around runnymede and bloor will definately have some shops that sell them.
        To cook from frozen - drop them in boiling water until they float to the top.
        Meanwhile, fry up some onions with some butter. When nice and caramalized, stir the onion/butter mix with the boiled and drained perogies. Serve with sour cream (salted). Soooooo comforting!

          I also recommend Super Kolbassa on Roncesvalles. I'm pretty sure they sell the PelMen brand, which in my opinion are the best.

          http://www.pelmenperogies.com/

          ..btw, there are 2 stores with the Super Kolbassa name on Roncesvalles. One is close to Queen and is closed down, while the other is a few blocks north of that on the east side.

          I'm sure you'll end up buying more than just Perogies when you get there. ;)

            European Delight at the St. Lawrence Market sells a very good frozen perogy in many varieties. They definitely have a sauerkraut but not sure about sauerkraut/mushroom. They are one of the best frozen perogies I've eaten.

              I had those from the SLM. The sauerkraut and mushroom were pretty good, they're about $3.75? A tray of 12 and precooked, just be sure to use them quickly or they get dried out, we microwaved them and they got dry, so I'd suggest otherwise or asking the lady there what to do with them.
              They've got several kinds including cherry and blueberries..etc.

                Boil them or fry them.

                  They have frozen ones which are $10 for a bag of 50. They are the Pelmen brand (see post below from bill_best). They are the best frozen perogies I've had.

                  We fry them in oil and a bit of butter (to get them browned) alone or with onions or chives. Serve with sour cream and a salt shaker.

                  Of course, this method is delicious with my Polish mother's fresh cheese & potato perogies. I'm sure it's just as tasty with frozen ones filled with other stuff.

                    My SO's parents purchased some perogies today from the SLM but from the Ukranian sausauge place this time (Ukrainian Store Dnister) all the way in the back, on the bottom level. They were separate mushroom and sauerkraut but they said they were really good, and they prefered them to the ones we tried last time. So maybe you could give them a try too :)

                  Gastronom Deli on Dufferin north of Finch has all kinds of perogies, as well as other Eastern European meants and food items.

                    There is a brand of frozen perogies (I forget that name - can anyone help?) that I have seen at Brunos and Pusateris. I think they may also be available at Summerhill Market. They are often in their own separate mini chest freezer. They are not as expensive as you might expect and are quite good. Try calling the Brunos at Avenue Rd. south of Wilson and see if they can confirm that they carry them - that is probably closest for you.

                      Sun Valley at Danforth and Carlaw carries them frozen. My husband adores them.

                        The brand you're thinking of is Cheemo, and I agree, they are quite good. I usually have a bag in my freezer for those carb cravings.

                          You may also be thinking of "Supreme Perogies". Summerhill carries them and I'm pretty sure they have sauerkraut and mushroom. They are really good.

                          There is a place on Roncesvalle called "super kolbassa" that makes them fresh, they have many varieties but the sauerkraut/mushroom are my fav!

                            Orbitgirl is right as Super Kolbossa is excellent, there are other excellent Polish establishments as well. Her suggestion is great as you can enjoy Queen West & Roncesvalles ambience, buy several dozen to take home, freeze some in quabtities as you like, 4, 6, etc. and although, frozen, you will know how fresh they were! From Yonge & Sheppard, your option, best to drive to or get a ride are the Russian groceries on Dufferin, North and South of Finch. You will have a wide choice of countries, companies, flavours in the large Frozen Foods section, a second worthwhile choice!

                              I thought Super Kolbasa had closed it's Ronces location? I may be mistaken but a couple of delis have certainly closed and I thought SK was one of them. I searched for some info but couldn't find anything to confirm.

                                I don't get down very often, but as I recall Super Kolbossa had a large sign and was like 2 shops south of a corner. On my last trip I found them about a block away I am pretty sure!

                                  I'll check when I take my dog for a walk tonight. I live in the neighbourhood but am terrible at noting and remembering the names of places. But speaking of Ronces perogies there is a place near the guardian drugs that has great fresh and frozen perogies. The selection varies but mushroom and sauerkraut show up quite often. Really good soups too.

                                  I checked and Super Kolbasa is in fact still open. It was Karl's that had closed.
