So funny! Just finished doing the dishes after throwing together an easy, peasy, super quick Perogy thing that we do and I no sooner sat down when I received a text from my daughter, “Remember that perogy sauce that Aunty Sabine used to make? With bacon and white sauce, I think. Do you have the recipe? Have a craving.”
Now I don’t really remember exactly how Aunty Sabine used to make it but I remember the basics; admittedly, I don’t make it all that often …probably because, well, for a few years there we lived in Australia and you can’t get perogies over there. Yes, yes, I could have made them from scratch but the one and only time I ever did that, they didn’t turn out ….at all! Floury, goopey mess, is what they were. So I leave perogy making to the experts: Potato and Cheddar or Potato and Onion for myself and I am sure my family would love the Bacon ones!
Now Aunty Sabine used back bacon, and I have a few times but more often than not I had regular bacon on hand  and that works just as well. Tonight I even subbed in sliced ham!
Alright, without further ado….

1/2 lb Bacon, chopped (or Back Bacon or Sliced Ham)
1 Onion, thinly sliced
1 – 2 cloves Garlic, minced
2 cups Whipping Cream
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Tablespoon Vinegar

Perogies, cooked according to package directions

In a deep skillet, fry bacon.
Once bacon is half cooked, add in onion and garlic and continue cooking until bacon is slightly crispy.
Pour in whipping cream; add vinegar and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium – low until reduced and slightly thickened.
Serve over prepared Perogies.
