These campfire pierogies are an easy, satisfying meal after a long day of hiking. Plan on making this recipe on the second or third day of camping. If you store the frozen pierogies in your cooler, they’ll be defrosted by then. Wait until you’re at camp to slice the onions and peppers to avoid an onion-scented cooler.
