German Meatloaf Falscher Hase

German meatloaf (Falscher Hase or Hackbraten in German) is a traditional German pork and beef meatloaf bound with boiled eggs, a real hearty comfort food. After WW II, falscher Hase rising to prominence as meat was still scarce but the housewives wanted to give the family a special treat, so they wrapped the ground meat (usually beef and pork) with boiled eggs and flavoured the meatloaf with parsley, mustard, and paprika. I have left out the hard-boiled eggs and bacon in this recipe.
Serve them with Sauerkraut, German bread dumplings or mashed potatoes and sour cream based sauce.
