Sicilian Meat Roll

Sicilian Meat Roll

2  Eggs, beaten
3/4  Cup  Soft Bread Crumbs
1/2  Cup  Tomato Juice
2  Tablespoons  Fresh Parsley, snipped fine
1/2  teaspoon  Dried Oregano, crushed
1/4  teaspoon  Salt
1/4  teaspoon  Black Pepper
1  clove  Garlic, crushed
2  pounds  Ground Beef
8  slices  Deli Ham (lunch meat)
1-1/2  Cups  shredded Mozzarella Cheese
3  slices  Mozzarella Cheese

Combine  Eggs, Bread Crumbs, Tomato Juice, Parsley, Oregano, Salt, Pepper, and Garlic; crumble in Ground Beef and combine well.  On parchment paper or waxed paper, pat meat into a 12-inch by 10-inch rectangle.  Arrange Ham on meat; sprinkle with shredded Mozzarella.  Roll up, starting at the short end; place seam side down in a greased 9 x 13 pan; carefully seal edges and ends if need be.  Bake at 350* for 1 hour, 15 minutes--center will be pink due to the Ham.  Place sliced Mozzarella on top the last 5 minutes.  Serves 8.

"And the Child grew and became strong in spirit,
filled with wisdom,
and the grace, favor and spiritual blessing of God
was upon Him."
Luke 2:40
Amplified Bible

This is a good 'dressed-up' meat loaf--hungry boys especially like this (but then, they like just about anything, don't they?!).  This recipe is from my Mom.
