Pineapple Meatloaf

I have been wanting to make this recipe for awhile now, but my husband hates pineapple and especially crushed pineapple. After reading several reviews, I learned that most people said you could not taste the pineapple. I decided to go ahead and make it without telling him. I made it before going to my meeting last night and left him to serve dinner to the kids. When I came back, I asked him if he liked it and he said it was pretty good. So, I guess I tricked him. You really can't taste the pineapples so don't let that stop you from making this because it is so good. I served mine with green beans and 80 calorie Betty Crocker instant potatoes and a biscuit. It was a great meal! I also made a mistake and did not add the oats, but it still cooked well even with those left out. I'll add them next time. I had my onion and green pepper already chopped so this was a very quick meal to cook! Here's the recipe, so you can try it yourself

Pineapple Meatloaf
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup green bell pepper, finely chopped (or any color)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 pound lean ground beef
8 ounces crushed pineapple
BBQ sauce, optional (add points if you use)
Combine egg, oats, onion, bell pepper, and salt. Add beef and pineapple. Mix well. Place in a baking dish and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Top with BBQ sauce, if desired.
Serves 4 (I served 6 with it, but I also have 3 small children)
