For a change of pace, try these stuffed beef rollups. I made them to use up some stuffing and gravy I had left but the recipe gives directions for a stuffing to use with them. I did feel that the amount of stuffing it made would not be enough so if I was going to use theirs I would make a little more. If you don’t want to do either of these things try using one of the many brands of Stove Top type of stuffing.
Either way they made a nice meal. Use more gravy if you want and serve them with mashed potatoes or rice. I went with baked to keep it all to a oven meal. The carrots were left from a beef roast we had had earlier in the week so this helped clean out my refrigerator, always a plus. This is a easy recipe to cut, I made one apiece for us, ¾ lbs of ground beef. This recipe is for the full amount.
Stuffed Beef Rolls
1 ½ lbs ground beef
2 eggs, slightly beaten
½ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper
½ cup dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
¼ teaspoon sage*
¼ teaspoon marjoram leaves*

⅓ cup chicken broth
one pkg. brown gravy mix with one cup water
leftover gravy or jarred gravy
Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, combine ground beef, eggs, salt and pepper;
mix well. In small bowl combine all stuffing ingredients; set aside.
Divide ground beef mixture into 6 portions. Between pieces of waxed paper; press one ground beef portion into a 4 inch square. Remove top piece of waxed paper and top with about 2 tablespoons of stuffing and spread to within ½ of edges. Using waxed paper as a guide roll up from short end jelly roll fashion. Press seam and edges to seal and place seam side down in a 12 by 8 (2 quart) baking dish. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Spoon off fat and top with gravy. Bake another 20 minutes or until done.
*(or use ½ teaspoon poultry seasoning to replace both)
