I would just make your favorite meatoaf recipe, I use a bread pan for mine. Put half the meat mixture in and lay 3-4 hard boiled eggs in the center and bake as usual. I have never made this, but thats what I would do. Maybe someone else has, and a different idea.

Boil about 4-5 eggs and peel. Mix your usual meatloaf recipe using about 3 pounds of ground beef (or beef/pork if you prefer). Half the meatloaf mixture and form each one into loaves. Place one in your pan and place the eggs single file in the middle. Place the other loaf over the top of the eggs and gently press so meat is combined but eggs are not mashed to the bottom of the first loaf. Bake as you normally would for your recipe.


Unexpected drop-in guest were normal during the 30's, 40's and 50's and there were jokes about stretching meals to feed them: "Bob's here, add another egg to that meatloaf." or "Look, it's the X Family and they brought the new baby with them. Add a couple cans of water to that soup." No one was ever insulted to add an extra chair(s) to the table.

When I was a child, we called this "sinking an egg." It was always fun to slice into the meatloaf and see a beautiful slice of egg in the center.

Tastes like meatloaf with an egg in the middle of it Sorry, couldn't help it.

As long as you loved hard boiled eggs I'd say it should be edible. I've never made a meatloaf this way for some reason. Ever since I tried a "new" meatloaf I've never switched back to my old recipe.

The taste is great, plus the different texture of the egg is an added tease to the senses.
