Stefania Meatloaf Stuffed with Hard Boiled Eggs - without Bread

This meatloaf, stuffed with hard-boiled eggs, is thanks to the second daughter of King Lipót of Belgium, Princess Stefania, who lived in Hungary and enriched Hungarian gastronomy with many new food variations. One of the main features of the dishes she made was filling them with boiled eggs, which is why these dishes were called Stefania-style dishes. This meatloaf is originally named after her, in Hungary this is known to everyone as Stefánia Vagdalt.

Stefania is a whole fried meatloaf made originally with soaked bread or buns in water or milk. However, bread greatly raises the carbohydrate values of meatloaf, which in turn I wanted to avoid. Therefore, instead of bread, I was looking for an “additive” that is natural, rich in fiber, and also contains fewer carbs. In addition, the taste is neutral, so it does not change the taste of the meatloaf. That’s why I chose chickpeas.

By comparison, 100 g of buns or bread has a carbohydrate content of 57.4 g and a fiber content of approx. it contains only 2.1 g, ie at least 55.3 g of carbs. In contrast, 100 g of cooked chickpeas has a carbohydrate content of 27.42 g and a fiber content of 7.6 g, so it contains less than 20 g of carbohydrates in total. (I would mention wholemeal breads or buns only in parentheses because, in the end, they contain only barely 10 grams less carbs than white bread and are not a significant carb savings.) So chickpeas not only contain less carbohydrates but also more fiber, and above all, it is gluten free.
