Blue Ribbon Recipe

What to do with extra sweet potatoes? Make this fantastic strudel! It’s simple to throw together and bakes beautifully. Using a pre-made crust means it’s a cinch to make. Once baked, it’s very impressive. It’s filled with cinnamon and brown sugar flavors with some crunch from chopped pecans. A great way to reinvent holiday leftovers.
