Easy Apple Strudel

I love all the possibilities from puff pastry and I’m always looking for a quick and easy breakfast. I’ve also been trying to get the kids to eat apples. I’d love to offer applesauce at lunchtime, but they won’t touch it. Thankfully, both of them ate this. So maybe it’s a step in the right direction.
