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


  • 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
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • Pinch pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. 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 8x4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Top with 1 tablespoon pineapple. Bake until a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°, 1 to 1-1/4 hours.
  2. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine onions, jalapeno, honey, lime juice, pepper and remaining pineapple. Serve with the meat loaf.

Can you freeze Tropical Turkey Meat Loaf?

Cool meat loaf without topping, and freeze, covered, on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet until firm. Transfer meat loaves to an airtight container; return to freezer. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Place meat loaves on a greased shallow baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350° oven until heated through. Prepare topping as directed; spread over tops.

Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
