Looks more like pasties to me, potato or wheat dough?
Pierogi foul! I see no cheese OR potato. Especially the cheese.
Wheat dough. A Swedish pierog is basically a bun with sauce bolognese inside.
Yum! The frozen microwave-ready stuff in the shops are only nominally pierogs.

I just had a vision of Homer Simpson* gulping them all down, and then licking up the crumbs that have fallen behind the oven, chasing off any competing insects.
Alas, I cannot make any food like this, the furry ones would “sample” the stuff before I had time to put them in the oven.

There’s been a lot of theoretical work done on dumplings:
Bolognese sauce is a long tradition in my family, though always used as a gravey for mostaccioli, rigatoni or occasionally ravioli. Of course, the Italian side originates in the Emilia Romana region of Italy in which Bologne is located. My Swedish side of my family loves the our traditional bolognese but I’d never heard of it being adapted by the Swedes before this. I’ll have to give it a try. Do you have a specific recipe for the bolognese sauce and for the dough? Cheers.
Spaghetti Bolognese is huge in Sweden, known almost as an indigenous standard dish these days. I improvised the recipe for the pierogi. Just make a yeast dough with melted butter, milk and a little sugar in it.
Yes, I agree. Bolognese has been a standard dish in Swedish schools since the seventies. However the recipe may vary and is not always in accordance with Italian traditions. It is seen as a homely cooking in Sweden.
