Stuffed Veal Wraps with Mushrooms and Blue Cheese

Stuffed Veal Wraps with Mushrooms and Blue Cheese

Enjoy these scrumptious veal wraps with mushrooms and blue cheese stuffed inside. Delicate, tender and seared to perfection with a tasty umami flavor. Umami, or savory, is a flavor characteristic of broths and cooked meats.
Blue cheese can be considered an acquired taste and is rather potent in flavor, but so many people love it. If you don’t and are looking for a substitute it would be best to choose another strong-tasting cheese such as feta.
What’s even better, these wraps can be made up to a day in advance, which also means they are a quick weeknight meal option that can be done in less than an hour.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
  • 16 ounces fresh crimini mushrooms, finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 ounces spinach leaves finely chopped
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 pounds veal cutlets (12 thin slices)
  • 4 ounces blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Additional salt to season meat

Instructions

  1. Start by making the filling. Place a saucepan over medium low heat. Place butter in saucepan, then add the onions and cook until translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add the mushrooms, thyme and 1 teaspoon of salt, and cook an additional 2-3 minutes until mushrooms are soft. Add the spinach and breadcrumbs, cook another 2 minutes until spinach is wilted, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. To assemble each wrap, lay one of the veal slices on a board, then spoon about 1 tablespoon of the mushroom mixture on top. Use the back of a spoon to spread the mixture across the surface of the veal. The filling should be no more than ¼ inch thick. Crumble 1-2 teaspoons of blue cheese over the top of the filling. Roll the veal in on itself starting at one end, then use a toothpick to secure the other end forming the roll.
  3. Add the olive oil to a large skillet (preferably cast iron), and place over medium high heat on an indoor stove or outdoor grill. Once the pan is hot, add the veal wraps. Cook for 5-7 minutes until a golden brown crust has formed. Turn the wraps over and cook another 5-7 minutes until cooked throughout.
  4. Serve immediately.
