DIRECTIONS

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the beaten egg, bread crumbs, diced onion, diced green pepper, plus the salt and pepper.
  • Add the ground beef or ground pork; mix well.
  • Shape equal portions of the meat mixture around each hard boiled egg; completely enclosing the egg.
  • Arrange the meat loaves in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish. (If I'm using 90% lean ground beef, I'll lightly grease the baking dish before adding the meat loaves.).
  • Bake in a 350º oven for 30 minutes.
  • While the meat loaves are baking in the oven, prepare the sauce.
  • In a bowl, combine all of the sauce ingredients.
  • Once the meat loaves have baked for 30 minutes, remove the baking dish from the oven, and discard any excess fat.
  • Pour the sauce over the meat loaves, and return the baking dish to the oven.
  • Continue baking the meat loaves in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Once the meat loaves are done baking, remove from baking dish and serve immediately.
  • *Note: Sometimes when I'm mixing up the meat loaves, I'll substitute 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of plain dried bread crumbs for the soft bread crumbs. I have also made the meat loaves using either 85% or 87% ground beef. Also, if desired, you can opt to make 4 meat loaves, by just using 4 large size hard boiled eggs, and shaping a 1/4 of the meat mixture around each hard boiled egg. Arrange the meat loaves in an 8 or 9-inch baking pan, and bake as stated in cooking instructions.
  • *Additional Note: Also, I did want to mention, when it comes to preparing the medium hard boiled eggs, I let the eggs come to a boil in a saucepan of water, I then remove the pan from the heat, cover the pan, and let the eggs sit for 9 minutes. Afterwards, I place the eggs in cold water (which I also added ice cubes to it), and let the eggs sit for 15 minutes. I then remove the eggs, peel them, rinse them under cold water, and pat them dry with paper toweling before I proceed to make the meatloaves.
