Spinach Meat Roll

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours


8 servings

We love the spinach, ham and cheese swirled in every slice.


  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen leaf spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced fully cooked ham
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs; add bread crumbs, ketchup, milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper and oregano. Add beef and mix lightly but thoroughly.
  2. On a large piece of heavy-duty foil, pat beef mixture into a 12x10-in. rectangle. Cover with spinach to within 1/2-in. of edges. Sprinkle with remaining salt. Top with ham and 1-1/2 cups cheese. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side and peeling foil away while rolling. Seal seam and ends; place with seam side down in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan.
  3. Bake, uncovered, 1 hour and 10 minutes. Top with remaining cheese; bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes longer.

Can you freeze Spinach Meat Roll?

Securely wrap and freeze cooled meat roll in foil. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Unwrap meat roll; reheat on a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan in a preheated 350° oven until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°.
