- Lay out phyllo sheet on work surface; brush lightly with butter. Repeat layering and buttering phyllo.
- Spread sweet potato mixture over the bottom 1/2 of the phyllo and within 2" of the edges.
- Tuck sides of the strudel inches From the filled bottom edge, roll phyllo jellyroll style. Place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Cut 3 slits on the diagonal in the top of the strudel. Brush top with butter. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving as an elegant appetizer of side dish. Enjoy.
