Meatloaf with Egg Inside

meatloaf with egg inside

I had already seen a meatloaf with eggs inside…but I had never prepared it, until today.

I did it without thinking too much, and I didn’t even noticed it is a light recipe, with little bread and quite no fat – but delicious! If a pop up didn’t open while I was reading the recipe, offering more low calories recipes, I wouldn’t even think it is a light recipe, so inviting it is.

It is very easy to do and the eggs inside enriches it a lot, in taste, nutrition and…beauty!

Today I had my son and my daughter to lunch. Now that they are adults, it is not so common anymore. And when they come, I like to prepare something special, for 2 main reasons: just to please them and, because having a food blog, it is something we expect, me and them ;-).

I saw this recipe on the great blog Munaty Cooking, and the only thing I changed is the garlic quantity. I love it but I do not digest it when cooked with meat. And so I reduced 3 garlic cloves (too much anyway, for our taste) to half teaspoon of the dried one.

We ate it with these potato roses that I will show you on tomorrow’s post. Beatiful and tasty. A perfect match ;-).

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 700 g ground meat (I used 500 g beef and 200 g pork)
  • 2 slices of whole bread
  • ⅓ cup low fat milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp dried garlic
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • freshly grounded pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 boiled eggs for filling
  1. Preheat your oven 180°C/350°F.
  2. Cover a 9 x 5″ pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a capacious bowl, put the crumbed bread (I put 2 slices in my kitchen processor and pulsed until reduced in crumbs) and milk. Let it for a while.
  4. Add all other ingredients, except the meat and boiled eggs. Mix it all wel
  5. Add the ground meat and mix well until well combined.
  6. Place half of the mixture in the baking pan and then place the eggs in the middle. Cover with the remaining mixture.
  7. Bake for 1 hour.
  8. Let it rest 10 minutes.
  9. Carefully take it out of the pan taking care as it will release a lot of liquids – it’s better if you do it over the sink.
  10. Cut the slices using a long serrated knife.
  11. Serve with a salad or potatoes.
  12. Buon appetito!
