You take all der meat, add ze spices to your liking and mix it. If you prepare more than on Fleischbombe, you can use different filling - use also different spices if necessary. If ze helper is not ready now, yell at him, as you need the cutted onion now, to mix zem in. Do not use too much of der onion, because this will make das meat unstable, oh nein!
Now the meat is prepared, and you can load das Fleischbombe. Prepare the cooking paper with some oil, but use it sparingly. Cover the paper with a layer of ham - zis will be ze outer coating of ze Fleischbombe. Zen cover it with der meat. Put enough meat for one Bombe on ze paper, and spread it out evenly. But some ham on the meat, it will be used to keep your filling together. Put ze filling on, ze tasty cheese and ze eggs - in one row. Don't be shy with ze cheese, it will melt and make ze meat very tasty. Now wrap the ham around ze filling, and zen ze meat around it. Cover any open spots on ze Bombe with more ham.
