This recipe is based on the popular pub dish, Scotch Eggs, which are hard-boiled eggs encased in ground meat. This is good warm but I like it better cold for sandwiches as it is difficult to slice through the eggs when the meat is hot out of the oven.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Stir together the ketchup, cheese, tomato paste, basil and oregano.
  2. Divide the mixture in half.
  3. Combine one half of the mixture with the onion, garlic, salt, pepper and eggs.
  4. Stir in the bread crumbs.
  5. Crumble the meat into the same bowl and toss gently until evenly combined.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. Press half of the meat mixture gently into a 8" x 4" loaf pan.
  8. With the long sides facing you, nestle the hard-cooked eggs into the meat so that the tops point left and right; leave space between each egg.
  9. Top with the remaining meat mixture, patting down gently.
  10. Spread the remaining ketchup mixture evenly over the top.
  11. Bake for 60 to 90 minutes or until the internal temperature registers 180 degrees F on an instant read thermometer.
  12. Rest for 5 minutes.
  13. Drain off any fat in the pan and thickly slice the meatloaf using a serrated knife.
