Meatloaf stuffed with hard boiled eggs

This is another dish that my mother used to make as a Sunday meal.  It's a nice alternative to plain meatloaf.  You can serve it either with rice (my mother used to make rice with it, or french fries) or mashed potatoes.  I prefer it with mashed potatoes and a bit of gravy from the pan drippings on the side.  Enjoy!!!

Makes 8 servings (approximately 5oz each serving = 2” slice)

1.5lbs ground turkey

½ cup shredded onion

1 tsp shredded garlic (about 2 small cloves)

½ cup chopped parsley

1 tsp salt

1 tsp freshly ground pepper

¼ cup bread crumbs

4 hard-boiled eggs

Before baking:

¼ cup olive oil

Pinch of salt and pepper

Turn on the stove and boil 4 eggs in water for about 10 minutes. Turn the heat off. Leave the eggs in the hot water till you are ready to use them.

Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Farhenheit.

Peel and wash the onion. Shred it in a cheese grater. Set aside. Peel and shred the garlic or press through a garlic press. Set aside. Clean, wash and fine-chop the parsley. Set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the ground turkey, the shredded onion, the shredded garlic and chopped parsley. Add the breadcrumbs to hold everything together. Add the salt and pepper. Mix together till all the ingredients are well incorporated.

Cut a large piece of wax paper and set on the counter. This is where you are going to roll out the ground turkey mixture. Take the ground turkey mixture and flatten it with your hands in a rectangle, about ½ inch thick.

 In the meantime clean the eggs. Take one egg at a time and lay in the middle of the ground turkey mixture. Take the edges of the wax paper and roll up till you have the eggs covered with the ground turkey mixture. 

Roll all the way till the eggs are completely covered and press together to seal the eggs inside the ground turkey mixture.  Tuck the ends under. Place in an oven proof pan. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and drizzle it with the olive oil.

Cover with aluminum foil. 

Bake at 350 degree oven for one and a half hour. Towards the end uncover and bake for 10-15 minutes, till golden brown. Serve with mashed potatoes and gravy from the pan drippings.
