My Poor Man's Beef Wellington is a meatloaf shaped in a mound on a flat baking sheet, baked till almost done, then drape Crescent Roll dough over it decoratively, covering it completely, and continue baking till the dough is nicely browned. Sliced and served with brown gravy, it's to die for.

I chop up the broccoli as well so there isn't huge chucks and sauted my onions a little longer because I like mine. Other then that I added a little salt pepper and garlic salt to the meat and it came out excellent. Super easy and will defiantly make again. Although ill probably add more cheese just because we are cheese fanatics. Maybe even small chucks of cream cheese! Served it with potatoes!

I've checked out a few recipes on this site, and have to wonder about the frozen broccoli. I guess I'm more a fresh fruit and veggie person.

I've made this recipe for years....definitely a family favorite! Make sure you chop up the broccoli fairly fine....so you don't have big chunks of it. Also, it's fine if you don't use the egg and poppy seeds on the crust. Very Good, Easy Meal!
