Yes sir, that’s a fine looking meatloaf, lots of good eating there.
You’re right Jim, I remember my Sicilian grandmother putting hard boiled eggs in things 50+ years ago.
I’m fairly certain the egg thing is Italian. They do this with a number of dishes. I’m not sure but I think it has something to do with luck.
With Easter a couple of weeks away there is a traditional Italian Easter bread baked with a hard boiled egg inside. Chow Jim
I had never thought of putting hard boiled eggs in the meatload but it seems like a great idea.

Meatloaf sandwiches. You lucky man.
That looked really good. Loved that melted cheese.
Oh Lord,if you are bored,come to my house and cook!!!!
Davydd……….what you might find hard to believe is that way back in my old Navy, commissaryman always put the hard boiled egg in our meatloaf … for a long time there I thought the egg trick was just a Navy touch.
I love what you did, great job.
I should stay out of Roadfood.com. [;)] I start reading about favorite meatloaf recipes and cold meatloaf sandwiches and my saliva glands start working overtime. So here is my Antsy Bored Man’s Meatloaf. [:D]
1 hard boiled egg (eggs are organic for to PC crowd) [;)]
2 eggs beaten
1 cup minced yellow onion (one average size onion)
1/2 lb ground veal
1/2 lb ground pork
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup Panko Japanese bread crumbs
3 minced garlic cloves
1/4 cup minced Anaheim pepper (about 2/3 of one pepper)
1/2 cup Roadhouse Southern Sunset BBQ sauce
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dry mustard
Sliced sharp cheddar cheese as necessary
Some of the ingredients. I used a prepared package of meat that weighed 1.59 lbs. that I bought at Lund’s grocery intended to be used for meatloaf. I’m not normally this fastidious with measuring but for this tutorial I went the extra step to see what it was. I usually wing it.
Combine all the ingredients except the hard boiled egg and cheese and mix completely
Fill pan about half way and insert the hard boiled egg in the middle.
Meatloaf is ready for the oven. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350F.
After one hour add the sliced sharp cheddar cheese and bake for another 40 minutes. The pizza stone happened to be in the oven so I left it in. It wasn’t planned that way.
Here is the finished meatloaf lifted out of its dual pan to show how the grease drips through. I mentioned in another thread this dual pan came from Crate&Barrel. There wasn’t a lot of grease in the bottom pan but there was also very little grease at the bottom and sides of the meatloaf.
Here is the meatloaf sliced so you can see the hard boiled egg in the middle. I had never done this before and I have been wanting to try it. I read somewhere this is what you do with meatloaf because often the center does not fully bake. Anyway it was kind of an interesting touch.
I did this all under duress with a headache and a slight fever. I was going to prepare this on Saturday but got antsy lying around all morning. I hardly ate any of it and my wife is off to the Bahamas and will not get to taste it. So, this will be for cold meatloaf sandwiches for the rest of the week.
