In a large bowl, put the minced meat, cheese

Break the eggs and then sprinkle over a pinch of salt and pepper

Knead with your hands to obtain a more homogeneous mixture and let it rest for 5 minutes

Pour the mixture onto the sheet of parchment paper and, with your hands, shape a uniform rectangle

Cover the rectangle with the cooked ham and the cheese slices

With the help of the sheet, roll the meatloaf from the longer side, turn it over, in this way the joint goes under and will not open during cooking

Take the pieces of butter and put them on the whole meatloaf

Close the meatloaf in the paper, as if it were a package, and place it in a pan or on the baking tray

Turn on the oven to 180°C (350°F), when it is hot, put the meatloaf in the oven and cook for 30 minutes, turn it off and let it rest for another 10 minutes in the oven

Remove from the oven, remove the paper, cut it into slices and serve


  1. The eggs are not all the same, so adjust with the dough, if after the rest it seems a little dry, add another egg or vice versa if it is too soft, put a couple of tablespoons of breadcrumbs and mix again.
  2. Even the ovens are not all the same, after the time has elapsed, open the paper and if it seems to you that it is not cooked well, let it stay a few more minutes, making sure it does not burn.


  1. After cooked, it can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple of days.
  2. Raw meatloaf can be stored in the freezer for 1 month.
