A very impressive and flavorful meat roll good enough for company! Like an up-scale meatloaf roll and one of my very favorites! Easy to make, too. And don't worry that the prosciutto is too expensive. 6 paper-thin slices don't cost much and are well worth it! You can sub ham if desired, though. Enjoy! Photo by me

How To Make sicilian meat roll with mozzarella and prosciutto

  • 1
    In a large bowl, combine the egg, ketchup, Italian seasoning, garlic, seasoned salt, and parsley, mixing well. Process bread into crumbs; add to mixture. Crumble sirloin over mixture; combine completely. On a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil, press meat into a rectangle. Evenly place prosciutto over meat to within 1 inch of edge. (Overlapping slices as needed.) Sprinkle half of the mozzarella over prosciutto. Roll up jellyroll style, removing foil as you roll. Seal all edges completely. Sprinkle top with coarse ground pepper. Bake, uncovered, seam side down at 350°F for 1 hour. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.
