Braciolone is an Italian roulade meat dish consisting of braised beef, veal or pork that is filled with cheese, salami, hard-boiled eggs and breadcrumbs and then rolled.[1][2][3] It is typically served topped with a tomato-based sauce.[1] Various additional ingredients can be used, such as garlic, parsley, walnuts and pork lard, among others.[1][4] The hard-boiled eggs are sometimes placed in the center of the roll, which provides a "bull's-eye" appearance when the dish is sliced.[2] It has been described as a large-sized braciola-style dish.[3][5]

Braciolone is also a dish in Sicilian cuisine and the cuisine of the U.S. state of Louisiana.[4][6][7][8]
