Sicilian Meatloaf from OAMC
2 pounds ground beef
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cups tomato juice
2 Tablespoons parsley
1/2 teaspoons oregano
1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoons pepper
8 slices boiled ham
6 ounces shredded Mozzarella cheese
Mix first 7 ingredients, then add to beef, combine.
On wax paper form meat mixture into a 10×12″ rectangle. Line with ham and cheese. Roll and seal seam. Cut in half. Seal ends and seam well, otherwise the cheese will just ooze out all over the place. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and bake 1 hour 20 minutes at 350 degrees. (You may wish to freeze one at this point if you are not serving 8-12 people).
This makes a really big meatloaf, so you can either make 2 and freeze one or have lots of meatloaf sandwiches for the week.
Follow directions but do not bake. Instead, wrap the meatloaf in wax paper and then plastic wrap. Place in a freezer bag until ready to use. To serve: Thaw. Unwrap and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake 1 hour 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Review: This made plenty I made one loaf and froze another. I really enjoyed the flavors. I omitted the tomato juice because I did not have any. I also used Swiss cheese instead of mozzarella. I have also seen this recipe made with 1 lbs of ground beef and one pound of ground pork.
PS do not let the rolling prevent you from making this it was supper easy!
