Meatloaf makes delicious leftovers. Top a slice with your favorite tomato sauce and a light sprinkle of lowfat mozzarella cheese and reheat. An instant pizza burger! It's just as good the second time around.


  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 Pound lean ground beef
  • 1 Teaspoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 4 slices sandwich bread, dried out
  • 3/4 Cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 Eggland's Best eggs (large), lightly beaten
  • 4 Eggland's Best eggs, hard cooked


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F; lightly coat a 9 X 5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

Combine all ingredients (except hard cooked eggs) in a large bowl and mix well.

Shape half of the ground meat mixture into an oval and press in the bottom of th pan; arrange hard cooked eggs lengthwise down the center.

Shape the remaining ground meat mixture on top of the eggs to form a loaf.

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until top is browned and beef is cooked through.
