Sicilian Meatloaf

2011_01230014

I love a good meatloaf and while there are a ton of variations on this dish, once in a while I run across one that I just have to try.

Like this one.....Sicilian Meatloaf.  Filled with ham and cheese and rolled jelly roll like, the minute you cut into it all this gooeye melted cheese pours out.  So delicious.

I'm thinking of making it next time and trying different fillings, maybe crispy bacon, provolone cheese or spinach leaves.  Oh yeah.

Line with ham and cheese. Roll and seal seam otherwise the cheese will just ooze out all over the place.
