1 pound veal -- cut in 4 thin slices
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper -- white
1 tablespoon mustard -- Dijon style
4 slices bacon -- slices
4 large eggs hard cooked
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium Onion diced
3/4 cup beef bouillon -- heated
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 tablespoons unbleached flour
1/4 cup red wine

Preparation / Directions:

Dry veal on paper towels. Roll in a mixture of salt, sugar, white pepper, and mustard. Place a bacon slice on top of each piece of veal. Place an unsliced egg on top of the bacon. Rollup each slice of veal (jelly-roll fashion) and tie together with string. Heat oil in frying pan and brown veal rolls well on all sides. Add onion; sauté for 3 minutes. Add the hot bouillon; cover and simmer gently 25 minutes. Remove the veal from the pan. Remove the strings from the veal and keep veal warm on a serving platter. Add tomato paste to the pan drippings; stir. Thoroughly mix flour and red wine to remove all lumps. Add to sauce and cook until mixture thickens. Add warm veal rolls and heat through. Before serving, place veal rolls on a platter, pour sauce over the rolls and serve with pureed potatoes.
