Piroshki is popular street food in Russia and a tradition in Russian culture.
These small, sometimes baked and sometimes fried, yeast-leavened buns are prepared in the shape of a boat and offer a variety of fillings. Various types of piroshki were brought to America by Volga Germans as what is known today as bierock, pirok, or runza, which now belong to regional cuisines found throughout North America and Argentina.
When the Russian diaspora came to America after the Revolution, the classic Russian piroshki was sold throughout Russian communities, including savory and sweet varieties filled with ground beef, pork, turkey, mushroom, potato, boiled eggs, green onions, rice, and cabbage.
Typical sweet fillings included fruit, mixed berries, apple, cinnamon, and cranberries.
