Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Line two small rimmed baking sheets with parchment 
paper.
  • Combine beef (or chicken) and salt in a large bowl. Use your 
hands to mix the ingredients together and form into 12 meatballs. Place 6 meatballs on each of the lined baking sheets and press flat.
  • Place one boiled egg in the middle of each circle of meat and wrap the meat around the egg, leaving no gaps or holes.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes. The top should look cooked. Flip over and continue baking for another 10 minutes. For a crispier shell, finish under the broiler for 5 minutes.

Notes

If you want to add your favorite herb like rosemary or garlic powder, combine up to 1 teaspoon per herb added with the meat before wrapping the egg.
 
Use soft or hard boiled eggs for this recipe. The softer the egg, the harder it is to peel. A small spoon can help get the shell off all in one go. Watch this tutorial to see how to peel a boiled egg with a spoon.
