Sicilian Meat Loaf

This is a delicious meat loaf that is company worthy or just for your average Tuesday evening supper. Serve it with roasted vegetables and you are good to go. The leftovers are awesome too. 
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup tomatoe sauce
  • 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste (easy on the salt as the ham, cheese and tomatoe sauce all have salt in them and I find that plenty)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 lb. extra lean ground beef (try bison)
  • 8 thin slices of ham
  • 1 1/2 cup low fat shredded mozarella

  1. Combine the first 8 ingredients.
  2. On a parchment or foil lined baking sheet spread the mixture flat into a rectangle. 
  3. Layer with the ham, then 1 cup of cheese. 
  4. Roll up the meat into a log. Peeling away the foil or parchment. 
  5. Bake at 350 for 60-75 minutes. 
  6. Top with a 1/2 cup of cheese the last 5 minutes of baking time. 
  7. Slice and serve. Makes enough for 8 servings.

  4. That sounds great...and simple enough. It's a new twist on meatloaf!

  5. Great recipe Char. I agree this would be good for sandwich meat. We like bison so that may soon be on the menu!

  6. This sounds so delicious. . .and I was hungry for a meatloaft idea too .. this one makes simple meatloaf fancy schmancy!

  7. I made an italian meatloaf that is very similar and serve it with garlic mashed potatoes. It's very good!

  8. "Sicilian"? So there really is a mennonite mafia! LOL.

  9. I thought this would be one of Anneliese's recipes since, while stopping by her mom's years ago I had to ask what the wonderful smell was that just made my mouth water... it was sicilian meat roll! She added broccoli for extra goodness she said :)
    I love guessing who's submitting these yummy recipes!
