Scotch Egg Style Mini Breakfast Meatloaf Recipe

by younghealt

These amazing egg-stuffed mini meatloaves aren’t only for breakfast. They’re great for lunch or dinner, too. But when served in the morning, they really start the day off right.

First, a mixture of pork and beef is seasoned to taste like breakfast sausage. Next, it only takes a minute to form the meat around a hardboiled egg. When baked together, the meat and egg turn into a rather stunning little loaf.

Cook these mini breakfast meatloaves on a lazy weekend morning, or better yet, on Sunday night so they’re waiting in the refrigerator Monday morning.
