 Grand Prize Winner-
 Braided Italian Hot Strudel

 20 oz. hot Italian turkey sausage
 3 large eggs
 1 can (15 oz.) Veg-All Original Mixed Vegetables, drained
 3/4 cup roasted red bell pepper, cut into small pieces
 1 cup finely chopped Italian parsley
 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts
 1 sheet puff pastry

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove sausage from casings and brown in frying pan. In food processor, grind sausage and two eggs. Add Veg-All, red pepper, parsley, and pine nuts; mix by hand. On parchment paper, roll out pastry to 12" x 15". Place on baking sheet. Place filling lengthwise in center third. Make cuts in pastry on left and right sides of filling 1" apart. Cover filling by folding pastry strips over filling, alternating sides, so it looks braided. Beat remaining egg, and brush it over top of pastry. Bake 35 minutes or until golden. Slice and serve.
