Meat Loaf Wellington Recipe

Meat Loaf Wellington Recipe

My family would rather have this than plain meat loaf. It's a good way to dress up an ordinary dish for company. Many people have asked for the recipe.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 70 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 can (10-1/4 ounces) beef gravy, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed day-old bread
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls


  • 1. In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup gravy, bread cubes, onion, egg and salt. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.
  • 2. Press into a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 1 hour or until meat is no longer pink and a thermometer reads 160°.
  • 3. Remove loaf from pan; drain on paper towels. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Unroll crescent dough; seal seams and perforations. Cover top and sides of meat loaf with dough; trim excess.
  • 4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Heat the remaining gravy; serve with meat loaf. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"Meatloaf didn't hold form well, I will add another egg next time, and also was a bit bland"

"I wanted to spoof up my regular meatloaf and this recipe gave me the inspiration. I make my own meatloaf recipe since my family prefers the taste of more herbs and spices but the addition of the crescent rolls on top adds that extra touch."

"Wonderful! Since I have become Gluten intolerant, I use GF Bisquick and make my own blanket instead of the crescent rolls and GF bread cubes! Cannot tell the difference! So easy to prepare and yet so elegant!"

"I first found this recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook that I had bought years ago. My entire family loves this recipe. (Husband and six children.) My children are older now and five are still at home and they still all love this meatloaf! We will be having this for dinner tonight but I am using venison in place of ground beef."

"(I can't believe this recipe doesn't have dozens of top ratings by now). This is the star of my family's absolute favorite meal. It is so super easy, yet so elegant when served, it looks like you spent hours in the kitchen. Whenever I ask my boys what sounds good for a family dinner, they always ask for Meatloaf Wellington with mashed potatoes and peas. The ultimate comfort food dinner."
