  1. Before grilling, run them under cool water for 2-3 minutes to thaw them. (This makes the pierogies easier to work with while ensuring they don’t get too soft!)
  2. Coat the pierogies completely in oil
  3. Pierogies grill best when you use a piece of aluminum foil as a grilling tray. This prevents the pierogies from sticking to the grill or falling apart when flipping… but you still get grill marks!
