Recipe: Easy Mini Pierogy & Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner
When you’ve wrapped up a busy workday and are just starting to think about what to serve for dinner, look no further than the most humble of baking equipment you have in your kitchen, the sheet pan. It’s your ticket to an easy dinner made up of cheesy pierogies and crisp-tender veggies, all tossed together with a sauce that comes together with just three pantry staples and some salt and pepper.
The star of this sheet pan dinner is Mrs. T’s Mini Classic Cheddar Pierogies, which are cute little pasta pockets stuffed with the stuff you love: creamy potatoes, sharp cheddar cheese, and big flavor. These little one-bite pouches can be sautéed, fried, boiled, baked, or grilled—and they’re the perfect ingredient for sheet pan cooking. They can be baked straight from the freezer and will emerge from the oven all puffy and crisp on the outside, and with a fluffy, cheesy filling that’s comforting and delicious on the inside.
To make this a full meal—with a big portion of veggies—diced orange bell pepper, red onion, broccoli florets, and an apple are all roasted together on the same baking sheet. Everything’s tossed with a simple pantry sauce of olive oil, whole-grain Dijon mustard, and white wine vinegar right at the beginning so that once dinner’s in the oven, you can relax and get back to that streaming series you’ve been binge-watching. Eighteen minutes and one stir later, and dinner is done!

Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the Mrs. T’s Mini Classic Cheddar Pierogies, garlic, onion, apple, bell pepper, and broccoli on the baking sheet. Place the olive oil, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Pour over the pierogies and vegetables. Toss gently to combine, then spread into an even layer.
