    Meanwhile, in a frying pan, saute the onion and bell peppers in olive oil over medium heat until softened. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes more, then let cool.

    • 1 red bell pepper, diced

    • 1 green bell pepper, diced

    • 2 Tablespoon Olive oil

    • 3 Clove garlic, minced

    In a large mixing bowl, beat the remaining two eggs. Add the milk, parmesan, breadcrumbs, herbs, and salt, and pepper.

    • 2 eggs

    • 1/2 Cup milk

    • 1 Cup Parmesan cheese, grated

    • 2/3 Cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

    • 1 Tablespoon Italian herbs, dried

    • 1 Teaspoon Salt

    • 1 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    Add the ground beef, pork, and sausage, and half of the onion/pepper mixture. Gently combine with your hands, being careful not to overmix.

    • 1 Pound ground beef

    • 1 Pound ground pork, or veal

    • 1/2 Pound bulk Italian sausage

    With a rolling pin, roll the meat out into an 8 x 5-inch rectangle between sheets of wax paper. Distribute the remaining onion/pepper mixture lengthwise down the center of the meat.
  • 7

    Lay 3 to 4 of the hard-boiled eggs end to end on top of the onion/pepper mixture. Bring the sides of the meat rectangle up over the eggs and vegetables and pinch all the seams closed. Put seam-side down on a rimmed baking sheet or in a loaf pan.

    Insert the probe diagonally into the center of the meatloaf, avoiding touching the pan. Place the pan directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and bake the meatloaf until the internal temperature reaches 165°F, 1 hour. If desired, pour the marinara sauce over the top of the meatloaf and bake for 10-15 minutes more, until the sauce has set.

    165 ˚F

    • 1 1/2 Cup marinara sauce

  • 10

    Remove the meatloaf from the grill and let cool slightly before slicing and serving. This is also excellent when served cold. Enjoy!
