Pepper Jack cheese

Pierogi With Onions, Salami And Peas

>
>
You  might wonder how pepper jack cheese has found its way into this otherwise more tame, traditional Polish dish.
Usually, “Quark ” (Farmers Cheese) is the cheese of choice for pierogies, but I like the added heat the pepper jack gives to my version. But of course, you can either use any cheese of your choice (try brie!) or even omit the cheese and double the amount of onions in the filling. – Decisions, decisions ……. 🙂
As for the garnish, again you can use your favorite ingredients and let your fantasy be your guide. You might want to try mushrooms, shrimp, any kind of vegetables, dried fruits, etc.
