What You Need:

Meat Mixture:
1.5 lbs lean ground beef
 2 eggs
1 cup Italian Seasoned breadcrumbs or 1 cup crushed ritz crackers
1/3 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon dried Oregano
15-20 baby spinach leaves
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar

What You Do:
Mix together beef, egg, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper, onion, garlic, 1/3 cup ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and oregano. Mix well with clean hands. On a piece of plastic wrap or wax paper, spread out the meat mixture in a rectangle so the meat mixture is about an inch to half inch thick.

Then place the spinach leaves on top of the beef mixture leaving a 1/2 inch clearance all around the meat edges.

Sprinkle with the cheese. Using the paper or plastic to help roll up the loaf starting at the smaller side. Press gently as you go to make sure you have firmly rolled the loaf. You roll the loaf same as a jelly roll except you press and seal all seams.

Tightly wrap the meatloaf in plastic wrap and set in the refrigerate for at least one hour (or overnight).

Mix the 1/2 cup ketchup and brown sugar together.

Place the meatloaf seam side down in your baking dish - make sure that the ends are sealed well.

Cover the top of the meatloaf with the ketchup mixture and bake at 350* for 1 hour.

Remove from the oven and let the meatloaf set for 15 minutes before slicing.
