Spinach Stuffed Meat Squares

Another of the recipes given to my friend by her mother.

Try at your own risk, although it might not be too bad, sort of meatloaf with spinach inside. Maybe it could be turned low carb?

10 oz pkg frozen spinach
1 c mozzarella or mont jack cheese
1 lb extra lean ground beef
3/4 cup oatmeal
2/3 c ketchup
1 egg beaten
1/4 c chopped onion
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil

Cook spinach; drain well. Shred cheese. In small bowl mix spinach and 1/2 c cheese; set aside. In large bowl combine beef, oats, ketchip, egg, onion, garlic salt, oregano and basil. Press 1/2 of meat mixture into an 8" square baking dish. Top with spinach mixture, then remaining meat mixture. Bake uncovered 30-45 min or until meat shrinks away from sides of dish. Drain off any extra fat from dish [how this would work, I have no clue. good luck]. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered 5 min or until cheese is melted. Let stand 15 min before cutting into 6 squares.

This sounds pretty good.

I've done a similar recipe, except that it was a rollup instead of cake-type layers. You roll the meat loaf mixture into a square (on wax paper to help you roll), put the filling on it and roll like a jelly roll. Then cook it on a large pan at a tilt so that it doesn't soak in grease. I've done similar, usually with cheese as the inner ingredient.
