  • 2 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp pepper, divided
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 egg yolk

Directions

  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. Mix 2/3 packet of onion soup mix and chunks of mozzarella cheese, and favorite spice blend into ground beef.

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.
