cups strawberries, sliced
Preheat grill to medium-low heat. Place Toaster Strudels directly on grill grate and cook for 3-5 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and heated throughout, turning once with a spatula to allow both sides to get flaky and golden. Remove Strudels from the grill to a cutting board, allow them to cool slightly.
In a small bowl, stir together strawberries and sugar. Use a fork to lightly mash the strawberries.
Being careful because the inside filling will be hot, cut each Strudel in half with a sharp knife. Place one half of each Strudel on four dessert plates, then spoon strawberry mixture over it, add whipped cream and the other half of the Strudel. Top with whipped cream and garnish with a few more strawberries if desired. Serve immediately.
- To cook on an open fire rather than a grill, cover the Strudels in foil and place on the hot coals of a campfire or backyard fire pit.
