A Pirogue recipe originally from Finland found on GunillaBlixt.se
Gunilla Blixt, chef and food writer writes on the blog: Those of you who know me know that I’m omnivorous and I love to eat vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, well, everything that can be eaten.

Karelian Pirogues are called Karjalan piirakka in Finnish. From the beginning they were a way to take advantage of food scraps and make a packed lunch that was easy to pack. They are filled either with rice or potatoes and they are at their tastiest lukewarm with egg butter.
