Meat Loaf with Hidden Eggs

Here's what I love to make for Easter when there are kids around. The German word for meatloaf is "Falscher Hasse" meaning "Fake Rabbit" and what's better for Easter than rabbit!

I put a couple of peeled hard-boiled eggs inside the loaf before I bake it. The kids love to see the eggs appear when the meatloaf is sliced.

Ingredients:


  • 4 lbs ground lean beef
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs
  • 8 slices bacon


Method:

  1. Into a very large bowl put in all the ingredients except the hard-boiled eggs and bacon.
  2. Mix thoroughly with your hands.
  3. Divide the meat mixture into 4 sections. Pat each section into a rectangle about 8' x 4" (approx.) Lay 2 peeled hard-boiled eggs lengthwise on each of two of the meat rectangles. Cover with remaining meat rectangles and seal edges by pressing together.
  4. Gently form the 'meatloaf' into a 'meatloaf' shape with your hands.
  5. Place both meatloaves onto a rimmed baking pan.
  6. Cover with the bacon slices.
  7. Roast in a preheated 375 F. oven for about 1 1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads an internal temperature of 165 F.
  8. Let the loaves stand at room temperature about 15 minutes before slicing.
  9. Makes 2 meatloaves, each one serving about 4 - 6 people.


This is something my Mutti made for us at Easter as well. Doing it as well brings back memories of her.

Another german word for Meatloaf is Hackbraten. I love the hard boiled egg in Meatloaf. It is a nice presentation and add a little extra to an otherwise simple meal.

Easter Meatloaf
by: Gerhild

Thank you, Anne, for this submission to the Easter Contest. What an unusual presentation that would surprise the children for sure.

"False Rabbit" somehow doesn't sound that delicious in English, but I know my Mutti called meatloaf "Falcher Hase" as well. For me, that was just what it was called. I never translated it, just devoured it.

Thanks for sharing. Keep watch for the announcements of the winner in a couple of weeks.

Blessings,
Gerhild
