Mini meatloaves made Scotch eggs style with a hard boiled egg in the center, topped with a ketchup glaze.



6 peeled large hard-boiled eggs
1 lb. ground pork
1 lb. ground beef
1 tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil
1/2 cup minced onion
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp. spicy or dijon mustard
1 tbsp. minced fresh sage
1 egg
1/2 tbsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. sweetener of choice
1/41/2 tsp. ground fennel
1/3 cup ketchup or spicy ketchup
Fresh thyme, for garnish


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a bowl, combine the pork, beef, oil, onion, garlic, mustard, sage, egg and dried herbs and spices. Once everything is mixed together, separate the mixture into 6 balls. 

Flatten each ball into a circle and place a peeled egg in the center. Wrap the egg in the meat mixture. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Brush half of the ketchup on top of each meatloaf.

Bake for 20 minutes, then brush with the remaining ketchup. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the meatloaves are browned and the internal temperature of the meat reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Top with fresh thyme leaves and enjoy!
