THE EASIEST KETO PIEROGIES. With these keto pierogies, you will NOT miss the dough, even my Polish husband Brad agrees!
I experimented with a sweet one and a savory pierogi, but if you are brave, only try the sweet one! -Em
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

For the “potato” and cheese filling:
- 12 oz of roasted cauliflower florets (toss in pepper, salt and oil and at 450 degrees, roast)

FOR THE SWEET PIEROGI
(if you dare to make them)

2. On a piece of parchment paper, lay out your cheese slices
3. For about THREE minutes, put them in oven until it gets melted but not brown
Fill your pierogies:
1. In the center of the cheese, put about a tablespoon of the mixture.
2. Fold the cheese over and to seal them, press them down.
3. Put them back in the oven for TWO minutes if you need to reheat the shells to work with them. In the oven, warm them and top them with your toppings!
