Safeway Holiday Recipes: Mushroom Sausage Strudel & Peanut Butter 'n Jelly Scones

I was awfully excited to learn I was going to get to be a part of Foodbuzz's Safeway Tastemaker Program and blog about one of Safeway's holiday recipes.
In fact I was so excited I couldn't pick just one!
My first choice was this mushroom sausage strudel. It incorporates several things I love (cresent rolls, sausage, shrooms) so I was sure I would love it. Plus it looked kinda easy which is always a bonus with me.
Look at me trying to be all fancy with my strudel on the right. I'd better stick with simple.
I think as well as being a great appetizer for any holiday gathering, it would also be super as a brunch item, maybe served with a side of hashbrowns.
I'll link up the recipe here for ya. I will say I would use about half the amount of dijon called for, but that's just me.
When I thought I had narrowed my choice down to one, this guy wouldn't quit calling my name.
I love scones and had never made a peanut butter one, so it seemed it was time.
I love how the jelly made a little heart shape in this one.
These were pretty easy to make too. I was a little concerned about the dough at first because it seemed awfully dry (in fact I did add a little more cream), but it turned out just fine.
And the addition of the chocolate chips in there was awesome!
I imagine a batch of these would keep the rugrats from nipping at your heels while you're trying to prepare your holiday dinner :)
This photo was taken while I had the other half of that scone shoved into my face!
