“A wonderful twist on your basic meat loaf! Don't be afraid of the rolling part - IT'S EASY!” - by Kimber
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- In a large bowl, combine eggs and tomato juice. Stir in the bread crumbs, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic and ground beef. Mix thoroughly. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- On a piece of foil or waxed paper, pat and shape meat into a 10x8 inch rectangle. Arrange ham slices on top of meat, leaving a small margin around edges. Tear up the cheese slices, reserving 1 slice whole, and sprinkle over the ham.
- Starting from the short end, carefully roll up meat, using the foil or waxed paper to lift. Seal the edges and ends of the meat. Place roll, seam side down, in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
- Bake in a preheated oven for about 75 minutes. Cut the reserved slice of cheese into 4 triangles. Overlap the triangles on top of loaf. Bake for another 2 minutes or until cheese melts.

"By looking at the current picture, you'd probably wonder why this has so many positive reviews. Well I've made this three times now and it's never looked like the big ole hunk of pooey that's picture..." See mored. I do have some recommendations: use a loaf pan, double the gaahlic, and I sometimes spice it up with ground pepperoni in the beef or add mushrooms to the cheese. It's also VERY important to use lean beef or you end up draining all the cheese along with the grease."
"This is definitely a 5-star recipe. We have been making this for years and love it! It's a tried and true, never-fail, company pleasing, favorite. You can even prepare it (not bake) in the morning ..." See moreor night before and store it the fridge until it's time to cook it. You do need to cook a little longer since you are starting with very cold ingredients. Update: I just made this again last night. The original recipe that I have has 2 cloves of garlic and 3/4 tsp of oregano. It also uses shredded mozzerella in the middle and slices on the top. Wonderful recipe! I'm glad it's on here."
