Tropical Turkey Meat Loaf Recipe

Tropical Turkey Meat Loaf Recipe

I modified another recipe to come up with this wonderful moist, tender meat loaf. The pineapple-jalapeno picante is a sweet and tangy topping. —Frances Page, Ontario, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained, divided
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine egg substitute, 1/3 cup pineapple and the seasonings. Add bread crumbs; mix well. Crumble meat over mixture; mix well. Press into an 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Top with 1 tablespoon pineapple. Bake at 350° for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a thermometer reads 165°.

Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
