Uszka

Uska

Uszka (pronounced oo-sh-ka) are essentially miniature pierogi. In Polish, the name translates to “little ears.” These bite-sized dumplings are especially popular among children. Prior to serving, they are often mixed with a little melted butter. Traditionally, mushroom-filled uszka are served with red borsch on Christmas Eve.
