  • 20 ounces of lean (7% fat) ground beef 

  • 2 extra large eggs 

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal (dry)

  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce 

  • 1 teaspoon salt 

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper 

  • 3 tablespoons dried parsley 

  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion 

  • 3 small hard-boiled eggs 

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup 

  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar 



  • Preheat oven to 400 �F.

  • Mix all but the last three ingredients (hard-boiled eggs, ketchup, and brown sugar). Divide mixture into two equal portions.

  • Place half of meatloaf mixture into an 8 x 4 inch bread pan, spreading an even layer across the bottom of the baking pan. In the middle of the spread meatloaf mixture, make a gully large enough for the three hardboiled eggs.

  • Place the three small hard-boiled eggs in the gully, and top with the remaining meatloaf mixture, making sure to press the mixture firmly into the pan.

  • In a small bowl, mix the ketchup and brown sugar, and spread mixture on top of loaf.

  • Place meatloaf in oven and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat the 350 �F, and bake until the center of the loaf reaches 165 �F (approximately 40 minutes).

  • Remove meatloaf from oven and allow loaf to cool for 10-15 minutes. Cut into six slices and serve.
