Floret Cheese Strudel Recipe

This is a unique way to serve broccoli and cauliflower, wrapped in puff pastry. It looks so pretty on the table. Without fail, I'm asked for the recipe whenever I serve it. —Bonnie Zaparinuk, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory

"Very good, and perfect. I think I got more flavor from using buttermilk instead of real milk, and only having parmesan and cheddar, rather than mozzarella cheese. but perfect. Didn't really think it needed extra seasoning."

"Love this's such a cool way to serve vegetables! It was a bit bland so i added salt, pepper, onion powder and nature's seasoning and some more cheddar cheese. Beautiful!"
