Meatloaf Wellington Pumpkins

For Halloween, I decided to make meatloaf wellingtons. They are great for parties because you can make them for individuals or shared amongst couples. They are also easy to make but looks fancy.

Begin by boiling your eggs until they are hard-boiled. I find that it takes about 9 minutes to get a nice hard-boiled egg. Put your eggs in a ice bath for a couple minutes before peeling them. It will help the eggshells from sticking to your egg.

Dice 1/2 an onion and sauté until it is golden brown. In a mixing bowl, add your 2 lbs of lean ground beef, sautéed onions, 3 tbsp dried parsley, 2-3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

Using your hands, mix all the ingredients together. Roll out the puff pastry and cut it into 8 pieces. To assemble the meatloaf wellington, take a hard-boiled egg and cover it with a layer of ground beef. Roll the ground beef to make a large meatball. Do this for the rest of the eggs. Take the puff pastry sheet and wrap each meatball.

You can leave your meatloaf wellington like this or make them look like pumpkins by cutting a face and adding a slice of carrot for the stem. Brush each meatloaf wellington with some beaten egg. Preheat the oven to 200C and bake for about an hour.

The meatloaf wellington is ready when the puff pastry is nicely golden brown. Enjoy!
