Add the frozen pierogies to a bowl and toss with the olive oil. Spray or brush the air fryer basket with oil.
TIP: I use my hands to rub the oil all over the pierogies to ensure they’re lightly coated.
Place the pierogies into the basket of the air fryer in a single layer (cook in batches if necessary).
Cook for 10 minutes, shaking the basket (or flipping them with tongs) halfway through.
Check and cook a little longer if you want your pierogies crispier or less time to make them a bit softer.
Serve warm and enjoy!
To oil the pierogies evenly, brush each with oil or use your hands to make sure each piece is fully coated.Make sure the pierogies are in a single layer in your air fryer basket. If they overlap, they may steam too much and get soggy. You may have to cook them in batches for the best results.Just like ovens, air fryers all have different variances in time vs temperature. It’s best to check your pierogies after 8 minutes to see if they need more or less cooking time and adjust until they are cooked to your desired texture.Storing: Store air-fried pierogies in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or add back to the air fryer and cook at 325F until warm and crispy.Freezing: Because the pierogies were previously frozen, re-freezing is not recommended.
