Bali Hai Meat Loaf
JoAnna M. Lund

Don't you want to believe that Bali Hai is a real place, not a figment of James Michener's imagination? The island paradise, said to be home to beautiful women and fabulous feasts, was celebrated in song in the musical, "South Pacific." (It turns out that it's based on a real Tahitian volcanic island called Ambae.)

Serves 6

16 ounces extra-lean ground sirloin beef or turkey breast
3/4 cup purchased graham cracker crumbs or 12 (2 1/2 inch) graham cracker squares, made into crumbs
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, packed in fruit juice, undrained
1/4 cup SPLENDA Granular
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-x-5-inch loaf pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine meat, graham cracker crumbs, onion, green pepper, undrained pineapple, SPLENDA, ginger, and parsley flakes. Mix well to combine. Pat mixture into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Place loaf pan on a wire rack and let set for 5 minutes. Cut into 6 servings.

Each serving equals:
