   Thoroughly mix ground meats, onion, bread crumbs, 3 T cold water, and eggs.
   Flavor with salt, praprika, mustard, and parsley.  Blend ingredients
   thoroughly.  Flatten out meat mixture in the shape of a square, (8 X
   8-inches).  Arrange whole hard-boiled eggs in a row along the middle of the
   meat.  Fold sides of meat pattie over the eggs. Shape meat carefully into a
   loaf resembling a flat bread loaf. Occasionally rinse hands in cold water
   to prevent sticking.  Cube 2 strips bacon; cook in a Dutch oven about 2
   minutes.  Carefully add the vegetable oil; heat. Place meatloaf in the
   Dutch oven and cook until browned on all sides. Cut remaining bacon strips
   in half and arrange over the top of the meatloaf. Place uncovered Dutch
   oven in a preheated oven for about 45 minutes. While meat is baking,
   gradually pour hot beef broth over the top of the meatloaf; brush
   occasionally with pan drippings. When done remove meat to a preheated
   platter and keep it warm. Add 1/4 cup of hot water to pan and scrape all
   particles from the bottom.  Bring to a gentle boil and add cornstarch that
   has been mixed with 1/4 cup water.  Cook until bubbly and thick. Remove
   from heat and stir in sour cream.  Reheat to warm.  Season with salt and
   pepper if desired.  Serve the sauce separately.
