Imagine sinking your teeth into this flaky pastry stuffed with a flavorful filling of feta cheese and sautéed kale. It's perfect for holidays and 'regular' days!
What You'll Need
- 8 cups shredded brightly-colored kale (regular kale may be substituted), with stems removed
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 (2-ounce) cup crumbled feta cheese
- 2 tablespoons onion soup mix (from a 2-ounce package)
- 2 eggs
- 1 frozen puff pastry sheet, slightly thawed (from a 17.25-ounce package)
What to Do
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium saucepan, bring the kale and water to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low then cover and steam for 7 minutes, or until tender; drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again.
- In a medium bowl, beat 1 egg then add the feta cheese, onion soup mix, and cooled kale; mix well. Place the pastry on a baking sheet and unfold. Spoon the mixture lengthwise down the center of the dough. Cut slits in the dough 1 inch apart lengthwise down each side of the filling.
- Beat the remaining egg and brush it over each 1-inch dough strip; alternately fold the dough from each side over the filling. Brush the top of the pastry with beaten egg.
- Bake the strudel for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden. Remove it from the baking sheet and cut into strips. Serve immediately.
