SICILIAN MEAT ROLL


2 eggs beaten
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup tomatoe juice (or ketchup)
2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp. oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 clove garlic, minced
2 lb. extra lean ground beef (try bison)
8 thin slices of fat free or lean ham
1 1/2 cup low fat shredded mozarella



Combine first 8 ingredients. Roll out on waxed paper or foil. Place ham and cheese with in an inch of the border. Roll up from the long side and place edge down. and seal ends. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours.

Very tasty and makes very good sandwiches the next day.



I made this for a family that had picky eaters and they all loved it.
(the meat around the ham does stay pink, don't worry it is cooked through)

  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!
