Roasted Sweet Potatoes Brown Butter Pierogies
Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
- 1 bag (1.6 pounds) Mrs. T’s Mini Classic Cheddar Pierogies
- 2 cups sweet potato cubes (About 1 large or 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 4 tablespoons salted butter
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Enough water for boiling
- 1/2 cup pecans

- Roasting the Sweet Potatoes
Preheat your oven to 400 F. Gently mix the sweet potato cubes with olive oil, salt, and pepper, ensuring even coverage. Spread them on a baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes. Stir once midway, and cook until they’re soft and tender.
- Perfecting the Brown Butter
In a skillet, melt and brown the butter over medium heat (5-10 minutes). Be watchful to prevent it from burning. Take it off the heat, cool for 5 minutes, and then blend in the balsamic vinegar and lemon juice.

In a spacious saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add the pierogies and cook as per package instructions (typically around 3 minutes). Once done, drain the water and mix the pierogies in the brown butter sauce.
