Hardboiled Egg Meatloaf
hardboiled egg meatloaf
This is a good one. Just go with me on it. My mom has been making this one for us since we were kids and it’s amazing. I call it meatloaf but really it’s like a stuffed meatball, with the stuffing being a hardboiled egg.
It’s a resident family favorite with us and once I've shared countless times because the creaminess of the egg yolk takes this dish to a whole other level. It gives an exciting twist to a family classic.
You just have to make sure that your hardboiled eggs are cooked and cooled thoroughly first before you assemble everything else. Since we’re big into hardboiled eggs as snacks (or even breakfast food) in my house, we regularly just have hardboiled eggs hanging out in the fridge. I would recommend if that’s not the case for you, that you make the hardboiled eggs the day before so you know for sure they’re cooled off and will peel easily.
You can go the classical route serving it with mashed potatoes, or serve it with mashed cauliflower or roasted veggies like roasted broccoli.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour
6 eggs, hardboiled and peeled
1 pound of ground sirloin
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 tablespoon dried parsey
Fresh parsley to garnish
Hard boil your eggs and make sure they are completely cooled before you make it.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a medium baking dish with non-stick spray. Place your ground beef in a large bowl, add in your spices and mix until well combined. Divide the meat into 6 sections, flatten each section out, place the egg in the middle of the meat and cover the egg with the meat. Place each mini loaf into your baking dish, cover with tomato sauce and cook uncovered for 1 hour or until meat is cooked through. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot! Enjoy!
