    Sounds wonderful! I have started preparations to make this for dinner tonight. In most other bracioli recipes I have surveyed, the recipe calls for soaked and squozen bread for the filling spread. Have you made this and did you have any difficulty with the consistency of the spread when omitting this ingredient?

    This is a fun dish to play with. Personally, I would call this an Involtini, but in Italian- American culture the Braciole became more than just a thin slice of suateed beef; it was expanded to include a filing and the filing is widely varied resulting in very different flavors. I have several dozen Involtini variations using veal, pork and even chicken with stuffings that include salami, olives, egss and capers, just to name a few.
