  • 1 bag of ready-made pierogies fresh or frozen (about 400g)
  • Vegetable oil for brushing

Pierogi dipping sauce recipes

  • ½ cup sour cream or creme fraiche
  • 1 teaspoon onion granules
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat your air fryer to 200C/400F.
  • If needed, brush the pierogi dumplings with a little vegetable oil and place them in the air fryer basket in one even layer. The more room there is between each dumpling, the better the crisping will be.
  • Air fry for 10 minutes at 180/360F until crispy and golden brown, flipping them halfway.
  • Remove from the air fryer and serve immediately with a side of cold sour cream dip topped with freshly chopped dill or chives!
