A nice change to regular meatloaf - very, very good! I did forget to put the garlic in it so I can't wait to try it again - we found this would easily feed 8 people - a nice company dish. Thanks for posting.

My mother made this once many years ago, and I was thrilled to find the recipe here! I put together the meat roll the night before and just put it in the oven when I got home from work, and everyone loved it. I'll definitely be making this again. Thank you.

This reminded me of something my Italian Great-Grandmother made when I was a child, (with a few variations), so I made it. It got wonderful reviews, and tomorrow I will be serving leftovers with Cheesecake Factory Pasta with Mushroom Bolognese as kind of a meatball substitute. Very yummy!

I LOVE this stuff. My mom made it for us when we were kids. She gave me the original recipe(Better homes & Garden's) & said don't loose it. Well I did so I am glad to find it here. I tried rolling it for the first time and it was so easy. I used waxed paper though. I usually use tomato sauce but was out so I used a squirt of ketchup & it worked great. Despite how well I thought I sealed it a lot of cheese ran out(mom warned me this would happen lol)Thanks for posting

This has been one of my favorite meatloaf-type entrees for years.

This only lasted one dinner and one lunch at our house (2 adults and a 2 year old!), so needless to say we loved it! I used tomato sauce instead of the juice, and dry bread crumbs rather than the soft. Surprisingly easy to put together and roll too using the foil.

Delicious!!! I even used egg beaters, extra lean ground beef, low sodium v-8 and fat fee mozzerella cheese and AHA certified ham since my DH is a heart patient, and WOW it still was moist and flavorful!! I definitely will make this again and thank you for the great recipe.

I have been making this for years and it is great.I leave the ham out,put a little tomato sauce in the meat mixture and on top after it is rolled up then put mozzarella cheese on top of that.
