  • Meatloaf:
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs
  • 60 g/ 2.1 oz white bread
  • 150 ml/ 5 oz/ ¾ cup milk
  • 1 kg/ 2.2 lbs ground beef or half beef and half pork
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dried savory or thyme or other dry herbs of choice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika powder
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes 400 g/ 14 oz
  • ½ teaspoon dried savory or thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • fine sea salt and pepper



  • To boil the eggs place them in a small pot, cover with water, add some salt and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and let the eggs stand, covered, for 12 minutes. Drain and rinse well with cold water. Let cool and peel.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius/ 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Break the white bread into small pieces, place it into a bowl, cover it with the milk and let soak until needed.
  • Grate the onions or chop them very finely. Grate the garlic. Chop the parsley.
  • Place the ground meat in a large bowl. Add the onions, garlic, soaked bread, the two raw eggs, dried herbs, chopped parsley, paprika powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well with your hand.
  • Place about half of the meat in a roasting tin, form a long shape of about 23 cm/ 9 inch, arrange the hard-boiled eggs on top and cover with the rest of the meatloaf mixture. Give the meatloaf a nice form, oiling your hands lightly for this purpose.


  • Pour the canned tomatoes and the oil around the meatloaf, add some salt, pepper, and more dried herbs.
  • Bake for 40 to 60 minutes or until the juices run clear. Let rest for about 15 minutes and serve with potatoes and vegetables or salad of choice.
