Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Strudels

Recipe by MamaJ

This is an elegant take on breakfast food. It can be made the night before and baked just before serving. Give this a try if you want something a little different than a breakfast casserole or strata. It is a very lovely meal to serve to brunch guests. Enjoy! **Don't let the long list of ingredients or instructions put you off. It is very simple to make.
