- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1⁄2 cup grated carrot
- 1⁄2 cup chopped celery
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1 egg
- 1⁄4 cup water (or as needed)
- salt, to taste
- ground black pepper, to taste
- 4 cups cubed white bread
- 3 1⁄2 lbs bone-in breasts of veal
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the mushrooms, and cook for 1 or 2 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the carrot, celery, and onion; cook and stir until the carrot begins to soften, 5 to 10 minutes. Turn the heat off, and stir in the garlic and parsley; set aside.
- Beat the eggs and water with salt and pepper in a large bowl. Fold in the bread cubes until they absorb the egg mixture, then fold in the cooked vegetables; set aside.
- Cut a deep pocket into the veal breast with a long, narrow knife. Stuff the veal with the bread and vegetable mixture.
- In a small bowl, combine paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle generously all over veal. Place onto a roasting pan, and cover loosely with aluminum foil.
- Bake in preheated oven for 2 1/2 hours, then remove the foil, baste with pan drippings, and continue cooking 30 minutes more. When done, tent with aluminum foil, and allow the veal breast to rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
