2 servings


  • ½ cup chopped fresh mushrooms

  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine

  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper, divided

  • ½ cup half-and-half cream

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ pound ground beef

  • 1 (4 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls

  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes


  1. In a saucepan, saute mushrooms in butter until softened. Stir in flour and 1/8 teaspoon pepper until blended. Gradually add the cream. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  2. In a bowl, combine the egg yolk, onion, 2 tablespoons mushroom sauce, salt and remaining pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into two loaves. Separate crescent dough into two rectangles on a baking sheet. Seal perforations. Place meat loaf on each rectangle. Bring edges together and pinch to seal. Bake at 350 degrees F for 24-28 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into meat loaf reads 160 degrees F.

  3. Meanwhile, warm remaining sauce over low heat; stir in parsley. Serve sauce with Wellingtons.
