This is one of those recipes where I had to try and figure out how to make things work on the spot, so basically I was running around the kitchen like a crazy person spilling boiling water everywhere and burning my fingers while trying to perfect this outrageous idea. At one point I almost cried because I thought I wasn't going to be able to make things work. I seriously think I scared my sister who was witnessing all of this go down. Oh yea, the pierogi recipe I used made about 6 pierogi buns, so there's that before I forget.
So it was really hard to get the pierogi buns to curl up in order to hug the hot dog, they ended up just staying flat. When I picked up the assembled deal it basically ended up being eaten like a taco and I guess there's really nothing wrong with that, right? I actually did put a taco holder into the large pot of water in which I was boiling the dough, to see if the buns would stay sort of folded..but nope. And I even tried to put the pierogi buns back into the taco holder and bake them in the oven for a little but nope, again. They truly wanted to be as flat as Kyrie Irving thinks the earth is. Lol.
Polish boy sandwiches are huge staples in CLE. I'm pretty sure they are traditionally made with kielbasa, but I'm indifferent to that tradition because well, you know how I feel about hot dogs. I'm always sort of hesitant to post photos of these things because there's always 1-2 trolls who will ream you out for not making it right. TO EACH THEIR OWN. Let's just leave it at that, people. Seriously, check my insta post. I bet there's at least one comment calling me out.
Comment if you have questions! This is a tricky one!
