  • 1 medium green onion, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)

  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp. water

  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed according to package directions

  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) Campbell’s® Chicken Gravy


  1. Stir the Quick Seasoned Mashed Potatoes (see Recipe Note below), green onion and bacon, if desired in a large bowl. Cool the potato mixture to room temperature. Heat the oven to 400°F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.

  2. Unfold the pastry on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry into a 16 x 12-inch rectangle. With the short side facing you, spoon the potato mixture on the bottom half of the pastry to within 1 inch of the edges. Starting at the short side, roll the pastry up like a jelly roll. Place the strudel seam-side down on a baking sheet. Tuck the ends under to seal and brush with the egg mixture.

  3. Bake the strudel for 25 minutes or until it's golden brown. Heat the gravy in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat and serve with the strudel.

  4. Recipe Note: Quick Seasoned Mashed Potatoes:  Heat 3 cups water and 3 tablespoons butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir in 3/4 cup milk, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt, if desired. Stir in 4 cups instant mashed potato flakes or buds until the water is absorbed. Proceed with the recipe as directed.

  5. Flavor Variation: Also delicious with Campbell's® Beef Gravy or Turkey Gravy.

Heat is the enemy of Puff Pastry—it handles best when cold. So avoid working with it on hot, humid days, in a stifling hot kitchen or next to your oven.

When serving Puff Pastry, cut with a serrated knife for the most even, attractive presentation.

Puff Pastry can puff up to 8 times its original thickness. That means even a sheet rolled to a thin ¼-inch thickness will rise 2 inches.

Use a marble pastry board to help keep Puff Pastry cold while rolling and cutting.

  • Green onions (or scallions) are great, raw or cooked, for adding a mild onion flavor to dishes.
