Gluten Free Perogies and the Butchers Bus in Edmonton

9 comments
Frozen perogies
The Butchers Bus is the first gluten free perogie we have come across in Edmonton.  Although I think they are technically located in Sherwood Park.

A family member actually picked up these perogies at the boat show here in Edmonton.  We were so happy that he found a local manufacturer of gluten free perogies made out of potatoes, because we could not find them anywhere here!

As it seems, the butchers bus does not have a store front but can either be found at markets or ordered online.  So check their website at www.thebutchersbus.com for more details about their products and which ones are gluten free.

The Perogies
The perogies themselves are a great gluten free product!  Although I have to admit, the first time we made them, they turned into slop because we boiled them first.  What a disaster! After a few calls to family we learned to melt butter in a caserole dish, coat perogies in dish with the melted butter, let bake until cooked, and then place in fry pan for added crisp.  Ontop of it all, a pack of 12 was only $5.00.

Let us know what you thought of this gluten free product found in Edmonton! And contact us at info@glutenfreeedmonton.com to provide us with any updates about The Butchers Bus.

  2. I am so pleased to have stumbled on to your blog. I live in Arizona but am from St. Albert. My family is still in Alberta. I am going to Sherwood Park next week for 3 weeks. Everytime I am back home I struggle to feed the kids (2 of the 3 have CD but we all eat gf). It seems like there is no decent places to eat except for upper end restaurants. However, if I can have gluten free perogies, I don't need to eat out! Where can I get these? Great price too. I haven't yet looked through your blog but do you have recommendations for where to eat?

  8. Oops! Forgot to mention Baba Spack's are $1 each - not nearly as affordable as The Butcher Bus! I'll be trying them next.

  9. Better yet - Anne's Gluten Free Perogies! They do not disintegrate when boiled (gently and not for too long...) and taste just like regular perogies. They are available at Sweet Tweet in Edmonton (www.sweettweet.ca) or by calling Nancy at 780-420-1904 or Anne in Calgary at 403-208-4697. $8/dozen... and worth every penny!
