Degree of difficulty (from 1 to 5): 3
For the meatloaf
400 g of minced beef
200 g of minced pork
4 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese

extra virgin olive oil

Procedure to make the meatloaf surprise in bacon crust
In a bowl I poured the minced beef and pork, the chopped parsley, the egg, the Parmesan cheese, the breadcrumbs, the nutmeg, salt and pepper.
I worked the mixture well, and then I poured it onto a sheet of parchment paper, pressed it and adjusted it into a rectangle shape.
I started stuffing it distributing raw ham on the meat, then the slices of galbanone, the spinach (which I previously cooked in a pan for about 10 minutes with garlic and oil and a pinch of salt) finally the boiled eggs, arranged in a row at the edge of the side from which I begun to roll up.
With the help of the parchment paper I started to wrap the meatloaf and once it was closed I kept it in the fridge for half an hour so that it compacted well.
After this time I wrapped it with bacon slices and baked it in a preheated oven for about 50 minutes at 200 ° C.
As a side dish I paired some grilled radicchio.
