Piroshki with Cheese Potato Filling

The cold Ohio weather has finally hit hard. Roads aren’t all that fun to drive on and the temperatures are low. The kind of low where you want to stay home and enjoy time spent with family and loved ones. This kind of weather makes me love being in the kitchen – baking up a storm with the kiddos! That said, I absolutely love the dough in this recipe. It just melts in your mouth. You can change the filling if you like. The chicken filling from this recipe is fantastic, or the meat filling from our Fried Piroshki. The kiddos will definitely approve the homemade Pepperoni Rolls. All those aside, this cheesy potato filling is really yummy as well. It’s great to enjoy hot or cold. If you have a Mr. that likes to pack a lunch, these are so good to pack. Though your home will smell so wonderful when you take these babies out of the oven, you definitely want to give it a few minutes to cool or else the potato filling will be too hot to enjoy. Your mouth will thank you for waiting, no need to burn ourselves.
These Piroshki would go great with soup like the Creamy Tomato Basil. This new popular salad or even this Easy Salad would be a great addition.
*To get the water and milk warm, I just combine the two in a small saucepan on the stove top and get it nice and warm. Not a fan of the microwave.
**You can use whatever cheese you have on hand. For this recipe I used a combination of shredded Mozzarella and Colby Jack cheese. Four cheese is wonderful and even Mexican style.

How to make Baked Piroshki with Potatoes –
Prepare dough-

Peel and cut potatoes into even pieces. Place potatoes in a pot and cover with water, sprinkle the salt. Bring potatoes to a boil and cook until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork.
Meanwhile, sauté onion with butter on medium heat until tender, set aside.
Once potatoes are cooked, drain water, set potatoes aside to cool a few minutes.

  1. I forgot to ask what is the best way to store them overnight? Can I leave them room temp or refrigerate?

      Either. You can serve them cold or just pop them back in the oven covered and they’ll taste like they just came out of the oven☺.

  2. Valentina,
    I made these piroshki today. I started out in a bowl, but then after adding the flour, I decided my bread machine can have fun kneading it:). I set it on the dough cycle and it was easy peasy. The dough was wonderful to work with. One thing that I want to point out that the way you say to split the dough would only make 12 piroshki, I think you didn’t finish explaining maybe. Just would make things simpler for a beginner cook. I figured it out no problem. Anyway, Piroshki were very soft and yummy. My husband wants me to make some with cabbage. So on my to do list is piroshki with cabbage filling and meat filling. Thanks for a great recipe!

  3. And another question can i use meat filling? Would i need to fry the ground beef before putting it in the dough?

      Kristina,
      You can do either. If you plan on making really big piroshki, you may want to fry the meat. If you do not plan on making them too large and keep them about the size I did them, they do not need to be fried. The meat will have enough time to cook through:).

      Hi Kristina,
      Honestly, I’ve never tried it in a bread maker, therefore cannot tell you for sure. You can however do it in a Kitchen Aid mixer if you are looking for help mixing. 🙂

  4. I made these yesterday and they were so delicious! I love the dough. How would I make an apple filling? Thanks in advance! Love your blog!

      Mariya,
      We love having you as part of our online family :).. Isn’t this dough just fabulous? I’m so glad you tried it. I love this dough for pizza as well, tastes wonderful.
      THIS dough recipe will be a better fit for apple filling. If you wait a week, I actually have a recipe coming up with apple filling – it’s wonderful. Just working out the final details in the post.
      Have a blessed weekend.
