  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the onion and garlic in a food processor; pulse until onion is finely chopped but not watery. Transfer to a large bowl. Puree parsley in the food processor; add to the bowl. Mix in almond meal, beaten eggs, 2 tablespoons tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, salt, paprika, black pepper, and oregano. Add ground beef and pork; mix gently by hand until just combined.
  3. Place half of the ground meat mixture in a loaf pan. Press down until well-packed. Make a shallow well in the center; fill with hard-boiled eggs. Pat the remaining ground meat mixture down on top, squeezing out any air pockets.
  4. Stir 2 tablespoons tomato paste and ghee together in a small bowl. Spread an even layer of the topping over the meatloaf. Place the loaf pan on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  6. Cool meatloaf until slightly shrunk and pulled away from the sides, at least 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board using 2 sturdy spatulas. Slice and serve.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Olive oil may be substituted for the ghee.
