Italian Spiral Meat Loaf
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup pizza sauce, divided
- 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 medium green pepper, chopped
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 2 lb lean ground beef
- 1 lb bulk Italian sausage
- 1/2 lb sliced deli ham
- 2 cups shredded part skim mozzarella cheese, divided
- 1 jar sliced mushrooms, drained
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, 3/4 cup pizza sauce, bread crumbs, onion, green pepper, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. Crumble beef and sausage over mixture and mix well.
On a piece of parchment paper, pat beef mixture into a 12x10in rectangle. Layer with ham, 1 1/2 cups cheese and mushrooms over beef mixture to within 1in of edges. Roll up jelly roll style, seam side down in a greased 13x9 in baking dish; brush with remaining pizza sauce.
Bake, uncovered, at 375 for 1hr. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 15-20min longer or until no pink remains and a thermometer reads 160. Using two large spatulas, carefully transfer meat loaf to a serving platter.
