Nanny Hudson’s Meatloaf with Hard Boiled Eggs

Share Button

I love food! Like many of you out there I enjoy cooking but more importantly EATING good food. Over the years my culinary skills have improved (thank goodness) and I’ve gotten somewhat adventurous in the kitchen, but more often than not when I have a craving it’s for comfort foods.

For me comfort foods usually mean recipes which my Mum made when I was a girl. These are foods with wholesome ingredients which just make me feel good. One meal which we had often when I was a girl was meatloaf. It’s a favourite for my own family with a bit of a twist; we add in a few boiled eggs for a surprise in the middle. Today I’m happy to share our recipe which uses a unique ketchup, unlike any other ketchup on the market.

If you haven’t heard of this product yet, don’t worry because it’s the latest baby from Burnbrae Farms. This is a recipe which is near and dear to the family who owns Burnbrae Farms, the Hudson family. The family roots begin in Canada in the 1800’s and it’s believed that the recipe travelled with Scottish ancestors who settled here.

In the early 1900’s Evelyn Hudson (aka “Nanny”) began making the Gourmet Homestyle Ketchup at just 19 years old. She began preserving tomatoes with vinegar, spices and brown sugar on the farm and passed along the recipe to her daughters and daughters-in-law as the years went by.

It is now with enormous pride that we offer you our family’s speciality. This preserve, with its beautiful aroma, evokes so many happy memories for us. Our Nanny was beloved in the small village of Lyn where many of the children called her Nanny Hudson. We hope that as you savour our product, you share in her warmth and love.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 jar of Gourmet Nanny Hudson’s Homestyle Ketchup (set aside 2 tablespoons for topping)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs or crushed croutons
  • 1 onion – diced
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and cooled to room temperature
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon dried roasted red pepper flakes

PREPARATION

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 5×9 loaf pan with cooking spray or lightly grease with butter.

In a bowl combine beef, Gourmet Nanny Hudson’s Homestyle Ketchup, egg, breadcrumbs/crushed croutons, onion and salt and pepper.

Once those ingredients are combined, take 1/3 of the mixture and place as the bottom later in the loaf pan. Pat the mixture smooth and level, then use your spoon to make an oblong indent and place the 2 eggs into them.

Use the remaining mixture to cover the eggs, be sure that you have the eggs entirely covered.

Place into the over for approximately 45 minutes, then remove from the oven and spread the remaining 2 tablespoons of Gourmet Nanny Hudson’s Homestyle Ketchup on the top. I also added some roasted red pepper flakes on top for some added flavour.

    Oh, wow, this brings back memories. My grandmothers used to add eggs to their meatloaf to stretch their offerings and make ends meet. That ketchup looks like a delicious condiment for, well, just about everything. I am going to have to try and track it down.

    This looks absolutely delicious and easy and quick to make…but how does it freeze? I am a bachelor.

    How wonderful to find this recipe! My Italian sister-in-law makes this when we visit Italy. Now I can make it for my husband at home.
