Meatloaf Deluxe with Hidden Eggs

Most European and some South American countries call meatloaf a fake, faux or mock rabbit. I have no clue why. Perhaps it originated as a dish served for Easter. You know bunnies bring and hide Easter eggs (never understood why) so this would be a fitting name.

The look of sliced meatloaf deluxe is so festive you’ll get the credit for spending hours in the kitchen, but the truth is it’s super easy and simple to make.

When I was a kid and a very picky eater as you can learn from my about page, I would only eat food that was visually appealing and this meatloaf was definitely one of those pretty dishes. Don’t you think? Besides, we love to stuff things like these stuffed onions.

Meatloaf Deluxe with Hidden Eggs Recipe

Delicious #meatloaf stuffed with hard-boiled #eggs is a perfect solution for when you need a simple, yet impressive #dinner. Click To Tweet

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound lean Ground Beef (I used buffalo, but the beef/pork mix is the best)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 small Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black Pepper
  • A pinch of Nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 3 hard-boiled Eggs
  • 4 slices Bacon
  • 2 tablespoons Ketchup

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter an 8-inch loaf pan. Sprinkle the bottom with a tablespoon of breadcrumbs.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the first 11 ingredients with your hand until just combined. Do not overwork it as it will get too tough. Transfer the mixture to a sheet of plastic wrap or wax paper and pat to form an 8×12 inch rectangle.
  3. Place boiled eggs next to each other and using the wrap to start a roll, roll meat over the eggs beginning at the long end. Place seam side down into the loaf pan. Spread top with ketchup. Place bacon slices on top or make a pretty lattice pattern if you desire.
  4. Bake, uncovered, for about 50 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Let stand 10 minutes. Cut into 1- inch slices. Serve warm as a main dish or cold for an appetizer or snack.

    Very creative, Jas! The bacon wrap looks really nice – although I’ll hv to substitute that with turkey bacon if I make this. Food for a true carnivore!!! With surprise egg inside, too! Oh yummy!

      Oh no, I’m so sorry for your allergy! But even without the eggs, meatloaf is yummy. You could stuff it with cheese or cooked carrots perhaps 🙂 Thank you for always stopping in, April!!! Hugs

    This looks interesting, I’ve never really cooked a meatloaf, with it being summer time here it is not likely to get cooked for a few more months, however I will give it a go sometine this year!
