Spiedini (Stuffed Italian Beef Rolls)

1.25 lbs beef sirloin sandwich thins

2 TBS olive oil
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBS dry red wine

1 c. bread crumbs
1/4 c. grated Parmesan & Romano cheese blend
2 TBS parsley
2 tsp dried basil (or 1 tsp fresh basil, chopped)
fresh ground pepper to taste

1 egg, beaten

2 c. shredded 5 cheese Italian blend

6 inch bamboo skewers

Preheat oven to 375. Line baking pan with foil & place rack inside.

Heat olive oil in medium skillet; add onion and garlic & saute until tender. Add wine and continue to saute until wine is evaporated. Remove from heat and set aside.

Take one sandwich thin, dip in beaten egg, and dredge in bread crumbs.

In center of breaded meat, spoon 1 tsp onion mix, spreading evenly lengthwise. Top evenly with 1 TBS of shredded 5 cheese blend. Roll meat up tightly and thread onto bamboo skewers. Repeat with remaining thins, using 3 pieces of meat per skewer, spacing evenly with at least 1/4 inch in between. Place on rack in prepared pan.

Bake in preheated oven 40-45 minutes until no longer pink. The spiedini may also be grilled or broiled.
