What You'll Need
- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 3 slices white bread, torn into small pieces
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups spaghetti sauce, divided
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh basil, slivered
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread, eggs, 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix with your hands until well blended. Place on a 12- x 16-inch piece of wax paper and pat firmly into a 10- x 12-inch rectangle.
- Sprinkle cheese and basil evenly over ground beef. Roll up jelly roll-style, starting from the short end, by lifting the wax paper and removing it as you roll. Seal ends well. Place seam side down in prepared baking dish. Pour 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce over top.
- Bake 45 minutes. Remove from oven, pour remaining sauce over meat, and return to oven 10 to 15 minutes, or until no pink remains. Remove from oven and allow to stand 5 minutes. Slice and serve.
