Unique pierogi fillings

Hi, I want to make pierogis this holiday and started to think about unusual filliings for them.
One I want to try is a kimchi filling. Well, any ideas for unique and tasty fillings?

    1. Once I did a Shepherd's Pie filling - finely chopped roast beef, potato, peas. I served with a curry gravy on the side for dipping.

      1. You could make an onion and mushroom filling like the one in Ushki, which are smaller, mushroom-filled dumplings often used in Russian/Ukrainian/Polish soups.

        Here is one such recipe:

        I like the one in Please to the Table. I've used it as a pierogi/vareniki filling before.

        1. LOVE pierogis and make them every year at Xmas Babcia used to make blueberry ones for me when I was little and to this day, it's just not xmas without them. Just mix frozen blueberries with sugar and a bit of lemon. I personally like to use the small blueberries.
          Good Luck!


          1. I have heard of gingerbread pierogis before.. always wanted to try those!
