1 beaten egg
3/4 cup soft bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound ground beef or ground pork
4 hard-cooked eggs
1/2 cup catsup
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
Shredded Cheddar, mozzarella or American cheese (optional)
In a mixing bowl combine egg, bread crumbs, onion, green pepper, salt and a dash of pepper. Add meat; mix well. Shape one-fourth of meat mixture around each hard-cooked egg, enclosing the egg. Arrange in an 8-inch square baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven 30 minutes. Drain off excess fat.
Combine catsup, water, vinegar, chili powder and oregano; pour over meat loaves. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes more, spooning sauce over loaves occasionally. If desired, top each loaf with some of the cheese. Return to oven and heat until cheese melts.
