5. Divide the meat mix in two portions, arrange the half of the meat mix on the bottom of the loaf tin, arrange the hard boil eggs over the meat mix, cover it completly with the remaining meat mix so the eggs are not visible from outside.
6. Pack it tight and keep it in the fridge for 4-5 hours or overnight.
7. Mix the 1 tbsp ketchup, mustard sauce and brown sugar. Pour it over the loaf evenly.
7. Preheat oven and bake it for 1 hour or until done.
8. Take care to switch over the upper and bottom heater accordingly.

(for 1/2 an hour i put it on the bottom heater only then taking care to switch on the upper one to give it a crisp layer and a beautiful dark brown colour.)
9. Cut it in slices before serving and enjoy your X-Mas lunch/dinner with this beautiful loaf as one of the dishes on your dining
table. "Bon Appetit"
