Meatloaf false hare

False rabbit is a meatloaf that usually consists of a mixture of beef and pork. A mince was prepared from the meat and placed in a ceramic or copper hare pan. Since no real rabbit was cooked in the intended form, the name “false rabbit” was created. Later the minced meat was formed into a simple roll similar to the saddle of a hare and cooked in a saucepan.

Hard-boiled eggs or carrot strips or pickled cucumbers can be added to enhance the value. The meatloaf is cut into slices and can be served warm or cold
