Baking Challenge


Give your dessert a clever name – and tell us about your recipe.

Spinach and Sausage Strudel. The strudel was filled with sausage, spinach, Parmesan and pepper jack cheese. I used a mix of two different recipes, and it was delicious.

What was the biggest surprise during your baking journey? Did you use any unconventional approaches? What did you learn along the way? Tell us about it!

I had a hard time wrapping my mind around this challenge in the beginning. So, for the first time, I watched the episode first for inspiration. When we watched the showstopper challenge, my pregnant wife almost leapt from her chair saying, "That! The baby wants that!" So the challenge was picked by pregnancy craving satisfied by this bake. I was quite pleased to see that you actually can read through the strudel dough after it is stretched! This was a lot of fun.

How did you add a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or decoration?

I used Wisconsin cheese and sausage for the filling.

How did you do?

Rocked it.
