  • 4 Toaster Strudel™ from 1 package (11.7 oz) frozen Pillsbury™ Strawberry Toaster Strudel™ (6 Count)
  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup whipped cream


  • 1
    Preheat grill to medium-low heat. Place Toaster Strudel 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.
  • 2
    In a small bowl, stir together strawberries and sugar. Use a fork to lightly mash the strawberries.
  • 3
    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.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1

More About This Recipe

  • And you thought Pillsbury™ Toaster Strudel™ was just for the toaster! Ever since I was a little girl, I delighted in showing friends our family secret for strawberry shortcake. My mom would slice open a Twinkie and pour strawberries on top. Easy peasy! I was so proud of this shortcake shortcut. Now I’ve got a whole new way to shortcut your strawberry shortcake, and it uses a package of Toaster Strudel! I used strawberry flavor for strawberry shortcake, but use whatever flavor you want. Instead of popping your Toaster Strudels in the toaster, take ‘em outside and pop ‘em on the grill. This may just be the most fun and simple way to make shortcake ever! Add the second half, then top with whipped cream and strawberries. Voila! These easy little desserts will keep the kitchen cool and your summer parties even cooler! Have a backyard firepit or campfire? Wrap Toaster Strudels in foil and pop them on hot campfire coals. Remove with tongs and let cool before opening and eating!
