A flavorful meatloaf stuffed with hardboiled eggs

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 pound ground beef (20% fat)
  • 3/4 pound ground pork

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground marjoram
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • butter and dried bread crumbs to prepare pan
  • 4 eggs, hard boiled and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons mustard (I used half Dijon and half whole grain)


Preheat oven to 425 F

Saute onion and carrot in butter, stirring the mix frequently, until onion is translucent, add garlic and cook 2 minutes more, cool

Add cooled veggies to ground meats, bread crumbs, milk, salt, pepper, marjoram, and beaten egg, gently combine without over mixing

Butter 8 x 4 loaf pan and sprinkle with dried bread crumbs, gently place half of the meat mixture in the pan, leaving a trough for the hard boiled eggs

Add hard boiled eggs to pan, placing them end to end, gently top with remaining meat mixture, without compressing, spread the top of the loaf with mustard

Pop the meatloaf in the oven, reduce heat to 350, bake for about 55 minutes, until internal temp is 160, let rest 10 minutes before removing from pan and slicing
