  • Total Time: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min.
  • Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 pound ground fully cooked ham (about 3/4 cup)
  • 6 sheets phyllo dough (14×9-inch size)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • TOPPING:
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Directions

  • In a small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheeses and salt.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, melt remaining butter over medium heat. Add eggs to pan; cook and stir until almost set. Stir in ham and cheese sauce; heat through. Remove from heat.
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons bread crumbs. Fold in half lengthwise; brush again with butter. Spoon 1/2 cup filling onto phyllo about 2 in. from a short side. Fold side and edges over filling and roll up. Brush with butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo, butter, bread crumbs and filling.
  • Place on a greased baking sheet; sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon cheese and 1 teaspoon parsley. Bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
    Freeze option: After topping strudels with cheese and parsley, freeze unbaked on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet until firm. Transfer to a freezer container; return to freezer. To use, bake strudels as directed, increasing time to 30-35 minutes or until heated through and golden brown.
