    it sounded a little odd, but it was VERY tasty and tender, and my hubby LOVED it! I added garlic and wocestershire and may add 1/4 cup grated carrot next time like I do in my old recipe (good way to sneak in some extra nutrition for the kids!). Will make again! - 3/25/08

  • This was a great recipe--I had never heard of putting hard boiled eggs in the center, but everyone ate it. Will be making it again soon. - 3/9/10

  • I made my own version, very similar to this with a few substitutions -- instead of oats, used 3/4 c. Italian bread crumbs, added about 1/4 c. evaporated milk, used fresh chopped shallots in lieu of dry minced onion, added lots of garlic salt & powder, and mixed A1 with the ketchup on top no sugar. - 12/30/09

  • Was surprised when I saw this. I grew up with meatloaf that always had hardboiled eggs in the center. The meatloaf recipe is alittle different than how we originally prepared it but it sounds good also. - 4/20/09

  • This meatloaf was incredible, however I didn't care for the egg in the middle, but that's just me. I'm not much of a hard boiled egg fan to begin with.

  • I made this with turkey and did not use the boiled eggs in the middle. Great recipe and very filling my 2 year old and hubby loved it. I do not think I would use the brown sugar on top again though, it was a bit too sweet for me. I will definitly make this again. - 9/28/07

  • This was really good. My kids, who are very picky, really liked this too. Will be making this again. - 9/27/07

  • Wow, different but "GOOD". I threw in some lefteover thawed out sausage (uncooked) and it turned out to be a great meal. I am going to try this again using only sausage and maybe adding some cheese to the top. Can't wait. - 9/21/07

  • Hubby took one look at the egg and said, "That is just wrong." However, the kids really, really liked it. Since they are the harder ones to please, this is a keeper for us. - 9/14/07
