Preheat the oven to 375F. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the ground pork in a large mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, tarragon, parsley, chives, and garlic. Knead with your hands till well mixed.
Divide the pork into 4 equal servings. Roll each piece into a ball, then flatten it in your palm into a pancake shape. Wrap the meat around a hard boiled egg, rolling it between your palms until the egg is evenly covered. This is much easier than it sounds. If the meat sticks to your hands, moister them with a little water. Place the meat wrapped eggs on the baking sheet.
If using the pork rinds, place them in the bowl of the food processor and process until they resemble bread crumbs; pour them into a plate or shallow bowl. In another bowl, beat the raw egg. Gently roll each meatball in pork rind crumbs; you want just a thin dusting. Then roll each meatball in the raw egg mixture and roll a second time int he crushed pork rinds to evenly coat. Place on the baking sheet.
Bake for 25 minutes, then increase the temperature to 400F and bake an additional 5-10 minutes, until the eggs are golden brown and crisp.
