This is a fancy looking meat roll that is definitely company worthy. Lots of flavor and a hidden surprise of creamy swiss cheese, colorful vegetables, and boiled ham inside the roll. Enjoy!

How to Make BONNIE'S SICILIAN MEAT ROLL

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute the red pepper half done, add the spinach and stir for one minute and remove and set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs, eggs, tomato juice, parsley, oregano, pepper, garlic and onion soup mix. Add the ground beef, mix well.
  3. Take a sheet of wax paper large enough to shape the meat into a 12 by 10 inch rectangle. (I measure it with a ruler)
  4. Add the slices of boiled ham on top of the meat, leaving a small gap around the edges for sealing.
  5. Add the swiss cheese, spinach and red pepper mixture to the ham. Spread it evenly.
  6. Using the wax paper, roll the meat from the narrow side, (the wax paper makes a perfect roll) and seal the edges and the ends of the meat roll and discard the wax paper as you form the roll. Then place the roll SEAM SIDE DOWN in a greased 9x13 baking dish. It will just fit if you have measured it.
  7. Bake in a 350 degree oven for one hour or until done. (The center of the roll will be pink due to the ham) Remove from oven, and cut the slices of swiss cheese at an angle, like my photo, and place them overlapping on top of the meat roll. Return to the oven for 5 minutes or until melted.
