½ lb. mild Italian sausage
1 cup bread crumbs, whole grain wheat
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
¼ cup milk
1/8 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
25 fresh spinach leaves*
8-10 deli slices of turkey ham
8oz. pkg. salami
½ cup mixed cheddar/ jack cheese
1 cup ketchup
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Prepare a 13 x 9 inch glass baking pan. In a large bowl, mix first 8 ingredients together.
On wax paper, pat mixture to form an 8 x 12 inch rectangle; ½ inch thick. Next cover the meat mixture with 4-5 slices of ham. Layer the ham with spinach, cheese and salami. Repeat layer one more time.
Roll the mixture, like jellyroll fashion; starting at the narrow 8 inch end; left the wax paper to help shape the roll. Once rolled, seal the edges. This will prevent melted cheese from spilling out while cooking.
Place rolled loaf, seam side up into prepared baking pan. Cover with tin foil loosely to prevent over browning; and bake about 30 minutes or until juices run clear. Remove foil and top loaf with ketchup. Return to oven and bake an additional 7 to 10 minutes.
*If you wish, you can substitute fresh spinach with 10 oz. package of frozen chopped spinach (cooked and drained).
