Italian Spiral Meat Loaf Recipe

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours
MAKES: 12 servings


  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup pizza sauce, divided
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1/2 pound sliced deli ham
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 jar (6 ounces) sliced mushrooms.


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, 3/4 cup pizza sauce, bread crumbs, onion, green pepper, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. Crumble beef and sausage over mixture and mix well.
  2. On a piece of parchment paper, pat beef mixture into a 12x10-in. rectangle. Layer the ham, 1-1/2 cups cheese and mushrooms over beef mixture to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side and peeling parchment paper away as you roll. Seal seam and ends. Place seam side down in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish; brush with remaining pizza sauce.
  3. Bake, uncovered, 1 hour. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 15-20 minutes or until no pink remains and a thermometer reads 160°. Using two large spatulas, carefully transfer meat loaf to a serving platter. Yield: 12 servings.
