Ingredients

    2 lbs. lean ground beef
    2/3 tube Premium Fat Free Saltines (about 15 crackers)
    1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute (Egg Beaters)
    1 can Hunt's tomato puree (10.75 oz.)
    1 cup Pictsweet frozen Seasoning Blend
    Spices: Morton's Lite Salt, black pepper, Tony Chachere's Salt Free Seasoning, garlic powder

Directions

1. Spray a round Bundt cake pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl, use hands to mash together ground beef, egg whites, and seasoning blend. You can use a couple of large wooden spoons if you don't want your hands to get too cold.
3. Grab about 5 saltines at a time and crush them into crumbs over the bowl with the meat. Mix well with hands or spoons.
4. Add all the seasonings and mix well again. Fold several times to ensure the mixture is blended well.
5. Pour about 3/4 cup (about half the can) of tomato puree into the meat mixture and mix well with hands or spoon.
6. Press the mixture into the Bundt pan and flatten to level with hands.
7. Place uncovered into the microwave.
-- Start with 15 minutes on Power Level 7.
-- Remove from microwave and pour out excess grease.
-- Cook an additional 10 minutes on Power Level 8.
-- Remove from microwave and pour out excess grease.
8. Place a large dinner plate over the top of the Bundt pan and carefully flip the meatloaf out onto it.
9. Drizzle the rest of the tomato puree over the newly exposed top of the meatloaf and sprinkle with salt and garlic powder (not too much!)
10. Microwave on full power for 3 minutes, and enjoy!

Note: You may have to play around with the time/power balance in your microwave. These are the times that worked for mine. Don't skimp on the 3-minute tomato puree cooking on top, though -- that's important to make a nice tomato paste on top. Mmmmm!

Makes approximately 10 servings, but can make it more or less if you adjust serving sizes.
