    2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 tube (4 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • Large egg, lightly beaten, optional
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

Directions

  • 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 until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine the egg yolk, onion, 2 tablespoons mushroom sauce, salt and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 2 loaves. Separate crescent dough into 2 rectangles on a baking sheet. Seal perforations. Place a meat loaf on each rectangle. Bring dough edges together and pinch to seal. If desired, brush with egg wash. Bake at 350° until golden brown and a thermometer inserted into meat loaf reads 160°, 24-28 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, warm remaining sauce over low heat; stir in parsley. Serve sauce with Wellingtons.
