Combine flour, salt, eggs, oil and boiled water in a food processor; pulse until it’s a ball of dough. Dust with flour and knead until smooth and elastic, then cover with plastic wrap and let rest while making filling.
Cook potatoes until fork tender in salted water, drain and set aside. Finely chop 1 of the onions and sauté with butter, add potatoes and mash together with the onions, while adding the cheese and bacon, then season with S and P as needed. Cut the dough in ½ and roll out to 1/16”, very thin! Cut rolled out dough into 3” circles. Place a circle in the palm of you hand, put 1 1/2 + tsps of filling inside and wet the edges completely sealing it. It's okay to stretch the dough when sealing it, after a few you'll be a pro! Place filled perogies on a clean tea towel and cover with another. Cook perogies in boiling water until they float; about 5 minutes, transfer them onto a buttered sheet pan. Thinly slice remaining onions and sauté until caramelized and set aside with bacon bits to use as garnish. Sauté boiled perogies in 1 tsp of bacon fat and 1 TBS of butter in a non-stick fry pan until they're golden brown; top with garnish and serve.
***REMINDER:*** This is cooking people: HAVE FUN, experiment, explore, be creative, make a recipe your own (you don't have to follow a recipe to the T), spice it up all little and again, have fun!!!
Get rid of as much bagged, pre-frozen/cooked, processed, pumped junk labeled a product that's main ingredients consist of nothing but unhealthy, unknown, additives, preservatives, by-products and just junk. Use fresh, healthy ingredients, get down and dirty in the kitchen....
Get the family involved too!!! My children 8, 4 and 2 love doing the littlest simplest things in the kitchen; It is literally a family event for everyone here to help out in some way, shape or form for supper (even if its just cleaning or setting the table)... FOOD IS FUN! Who knows, the next Ramsay, Lagasee, Flay or Ray may be 3 foot nothing right in your own home, for those with children (there are 1000's of great Chef's in the world today, I just named a few off the top of my head, so if I offended you by omitting one, I'm sorry). It will also be an invaluable learning experience that will change their lives (thanks MOM!!!)...
Those without little ones, invite the family around you over and cook together, have a potluck, invite the friends.
Throw away all the garbage processed foods and have some fun in the kitchen with healthy, fresh, homemade cooking with real, fresh ingredients. Revolutionize your life, health and bring back family togetherness. Food, it's an amazing thing!!!
