Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ -----------------------------
2 slightly beaten eggs
3/4 c. soft bread crumbs
1/2 c. tomato juice (or 1/4 c. tomato sauce and 1/4 c. water mixed)
2 T. snipped fresh parsley
1/2 t. dried oregano -- crushed
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1 small clove garlic -- minced
2 lbs. lean ground beef
6 thin slices fully cooked deli ham
1 3/4 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl combine eggs, bread crumbs, tomato juice, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper, and garlic.
Stir in ground beef, mixing well.

On foil, pat meat mixture into a 12x10 inch rectangle. Arrange ham slices on top of meat, leaving a 3/4 inch border around all edges. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups cheese over ham. Starting from a short end, carefully roll up meat, using foil to lift and guide; seal edges and ends. Place roll, seam side down, in a 13x9x2 pan sprayed with Pam.

Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until it reaches 170 degrees and juices run clear. (Center of meat roll will be pink because of the ham.) Sprinkle remaining cheese over top of roll; return to oven for 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove to a platter to serve.
