Default Sicilian Meat Roll

Tonight I'm going to try to convert an old, well-loved recipe to something low-carb. It called for bread crumbs and tomato juice, but I'm going to leave them out and hope for the best.

Here are the altered ingredients:

2 beaten eggs
2 T. snipped parsley
1/2 tsp. oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 clove minced garlic
2 lb. ground beef
6 oz. thinly sliced ham
1 pckg. sliced mozzarella or muenster cheese

In a bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients. Add ground meat and mix thoroughly. On waxed paper, pat meat mixture to a 10x8" rectangle. Arrange ham slices on top of meat. Reserve one slice of cheese. Tear up remaining cheese and sprinkle over ham. Starting from short end, carefully roll up meat, using paper to lift. Seal edges and ends. Place seam down in a 13x9x2" baking pan. Bake at 350 for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours. Center will be pink due to ham. Garnish with remaining cheese. Return to oven for 2 minutes. Serves 5 to 7.


I used 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese in place of breadcrumbs and it turned out very nicely.
