- 2 lbs hamburger
- 2 eggs
- 3⁄4 cup soft breadcrumbs
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt, divided

Directions See How It's Made
- Rinse frozen broccoli under cold running water to separate pieces; drain well.
- Mix hamburger, eggs, bread crumbs, ketchup, milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper and oregano.
- Place mixture on a large sheet of aluminum foil and shape into a rectangle 12 by 10 inches.
- Arrange broccoli on hamburger mixture to within 1/2 inch of edges.
- Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt.
- Arrange ham on top of the broccoli.
- Roll up the rectangle carefully, beginning at the short side and using foil to lift. Press edges and ends of roll to seal.
- Place on a rack in shallow roasting pan.
- Cook uncovered in a preheated 350 degree oven for 75 minutes.
- Overlap cheese on top; cook just until cheese begins to melt, about 1 minute longer.
- The centre of the meat-loaf roll may look pink due to the ham.
- Do-ahead tip: After rolling, cover and refrigerate meat-loaf roll no longer than 24 hours. Cook as directed, but increase cooking time to 90 minutes.
