      1/2  Pound         Ground Beef -- Lean
      1/2  Pound         Ground Pork -- Lean
    1                    Onion; Medium -- Chopped
    3      Tablespoons   Bread Crumbs
    3      Tablespoons   Water -- Cold
    2                    Eggs -- Large
      1/2  Teaspoon      Salt
    1      Teaspoon      Paprika
    1      Teaspoon      Mustard -- Prepared
    2      Tablespoons   Parsley -- Chopped
    3                    Hard Cooked Eggs -- Peeled
    4                    Bacon -- Strips
    4      Tablespoons   Vegetable Oil
    1      Cup           Beef Broth
                         -----SAUCE-----
      1/4  Cup           Water -- Hot
    1      Teaspoon      Cornstarch
      1/4  Cup           Water
      1/2  Cup           Sour Cream
 
 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.
