  1. I’d like to add kielbasa in with the piroghi. Should the time be increased or would I need to perhaps add some chicken stock to accommodate the added volume?

    • All of the recipes I post on my site are the actual photos from when I make the recipes. I don’t “fake” the photos for styling purposes. In this case, the pierogies came out of the slow cooker, were put right in the bowl and then photographed. The ones that were touching the crock, got the browned edges. My recommendation would be to put them in a single layer in the bottom of the crock so that you get maximum browning. I hope this helps 🙂

  2. 1 box ain’t gonna do it. Will this recipe handle a full crockpot of pierogi? At least 4-6 boxes? What would the cooking time be?

    • I think as long as your slow cooker is big enough so it’s not over-full. I would cook them for at least 6 hours.

      • At any point in time do you stir. My recipe, very similar to yours, worked the first time. I put margarine on each layer with cooked onions and bacon. They turned out great. The second time not so great. Thought I did the same thing but they came out in one great big blob. What should I do different.

        Thanks

        • I do not stir, just set and forget. Here are somethings to check… Did you use frozen pierogies both times? Did you exceed the 3-4 hour cooking time? Did you have your slow cooker set to low?
