      1/4   c            Water -- Hot
    1       t            Cornstarch
      1/4   c            Water
      1/2   c            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.
