1) In a small bowl, combine poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic, onion and salt. Set aside.

2) Boil pierogies as directed on package. Drain.

3) In a 12-inch skillet over medium heat, melt butter and then saute pierogies, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle pierogies evenly with poppy seed mixture as they begin to brown. When done, arrange pierogies on serving plate.
