For the filling

2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1/2 cup smoked ham, diced
1/4 cup frozen sweet peas, thawed
1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese

For the dough

240g bread flour
240g plain flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
2 tsps olive oil
240ml warm water
4L salted water
1 small onion, sliced
60g butter
2 green onions, sliced
Sour cream, to garnish
1) Place all the filling ingredients in a medium bowl and combine well. Set aside.

2) For the dough, place both the flours in a large bowl, add the baking powder and salt and mix well. In a separate bowl place the egg, olive oil and 240ml of water and whisk until combined.

3) Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients using a wooden spoon to form a ball. Cut the dough in half. (You can freeze it for another time, if desired.)

4) Flour a work surface and roll the dough about 3mm thick. Use a 7 1/2cm biscuit cutter to cut out 12 rounds from the dough.

5) Place a dollop of filling in the centre of each dough round. Fold the dough over the filling to form a half moon. Press the edges together with your thumb and seal using the flat tines of a fork.

6) Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a simmer. Add the perogies and cook for about 2 minutes, then drain.

7) Meanwhile, in a large frying pan over a high heat, melt half the butter and add the onion. Cook for 5-6 minutes until slightly caramelised.

8) Add the perogies and the remaining butter. Allow to saute for a few minutes, then add the spring onions.

Remove to a serving platter and serve with sour cream.
