1 egg

Salt and pepper

Demi glace,  or beef broth 2 cups

Trim and clean fillets and cut each into 4 equal medallions season with salt and pepper

Cut bread into small pieces and soak  in milk. Strain, put in blender with walnuts and cheese. Blend until smooth, then add egg and pepper. If dry, add a little milk.

Put mixture on parchment paper or plastic wrap and wrap into a long tube. Put in refrigerator.

Fry medallions on both sides and then roast at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.

Slice bread mixture and place a slice on each medallion and bake for 2-3 more minutes.

Plate and pour warmed demi glace, gravy, or beef broth over the top and serve.

It is delicious and easy to prepare. Just writing it makes me hungry.

Me too, Ralph….
