Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Russian пиро́г (piróg).

Noun[edit]

pirog (plural pirogs or pirogi)

  1. A baked case of dough with a sweet or savoury filling, popular in Eastern Europe.
    • 1933, Nina Nikolaevna Selivanova, Dining & Wining in Old Russia, page 90:
      On such a day it was the custom, some sixty years ago, to bake several immense pirogs of cake dough; one of these pirogs was stuffed with hard-boiled eggs and sometimes also with kasha, while the others had no fillings; it was these latter that were sent to various relatives as a sign of affection.
    • 2011, Hilda Leyel, The Perfect Picnic:
      Pirogs are eaten in Russia with soup and can be filled with meat, ham, fish or cheese, but they are usually stuffed with herbs and are not unlike the herby pastes that were so much in vogue in England in the eighteenth century.
