Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In large bowl combine first 7 ingredients til very well mixed.
  2. Place mixture onto a sheet of foil.
  3. Press out to a flat, even 8"x10" rectangle.
  4. Top evenly with 6 slices ham to within 1/2" of edges.
  5. Top with 6 slices american cheese.
  6. Sprinkle cheese layer with chopped broccoli evenly. Chop any big pieces smaller.
  7. Roll up starting from long side, lifting and using the foil to help you roll it all up.
  8. Roll up tightly.
  9. Pinch ends and seam closed VERY well. Place seam side down onto cookie sheet, or keep on the foil (seam side down)and place onto cookie sheet, that's what I did. Easier clean up!
  10. Sprinkle with a little coarse ground pepper.
  11. Bake in 350º oven for 55 minutes.
  12. Cut remaining 4 slices cheese in half corner to corner. Place on top of meatloaf nicely, overlapping slices slightly, showing pointed sides.
  13. Bake 5 minutes longer or til cheese is just melted.
  14. Let rest 15-20 minutes before slicing.
  15. Good served with mashed potatoes, baby carrots and fresh rolls.
  16. *Some hams can turn ground beef slightly pink. It is done in 1 hour. Just check juices to see if they are running clear.
  17. **"Do-ahead" Tip:This can be rolled up and refrigerated (covered)for up to 24 hours before baking.

I love this recipe. It has become "Meatloaf Monday" at our house. I am a low carb person so I cut the Oatmeal down to 1/4 of a cup. It works just fine. And I don't think I have used American cheese, I generally use a Shredded Monterey and cheddar. I also don't use the milk. It really does stay moist. Sometimes to spice it up I use Pepper Jack. Tasty!

Sorry - this didn't turn out for us. My husband said it was ok for him (he would eat cardboard,) but we ended up ordering out for our company. I thought it sounded delicious, but it fell apart and didn't taste right. I did double the recipe, but followed it aside from that. Reviewed or ZWT4 Flying Duchess'

I thought this meatloaf was fantastic! I used 93% lean beef and it was moist and delicious! I used bread crumbs vs oats and provolone for the cheese. I certainly need practice with my rolling technique though- lol. I lined a 9x13 glass baking pan with foil and you're right, clean up was a breeze. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT4
