  1. 1
    Clean and bone veal breast, trimming well. Grind veal scraps; reserve 1-1/2 lb for stuffing.

    Combine mushroom mixture and ground veal mixture, mixing well.
  6. 6
    Open veal breast pieces flat. Spread with stuffing, leaving 1-inch border. Roll up jelly-roll style. (Roll veal with the grain, so that when served, roll will be sliced across the grain.) Wrap rolls securely in cheesecloth; tie with kitchen twine. Refrigerate.
