      Promise not to add the bar code or box to the meatloaf. My meatloaf being humble since I can't afford grass fed, I have no idea whether the "dried potato dust" was made from fake or genuine potatoes. Elsewhere in this thread I give sufficient reason why I need to take shortcuts. If I could boil some potatoes, I would.

        I've used it as "filler" for my meatza crusts. Helps shrinkage and in our case, you couldn't really taste it. Much cheaper than almond flour. I only need about 2 TBL's per pound if I use it

          I use potato flour as my thickener for anything needing thickening - most of those dishes use potatoes anyway so it seems like a natural fit. I also use it to thicken meat gravies - I brown ground beef and onions in beef tallow, then sprinkle a few tablespoons of potato flour and blend well, then add hot bone broth and bring to a boil on high heat. Let it bubble for a bit to thicken, then add cream to finish it. Don't see why that wouldn't work for meatloaf. I'm not a fan of potato flakes and a bag of Bob Mills potato flour lasts a long time so the cost doesn't concern me much.

            what's the difference between potato flour and potato flakes? they're both dehydrated and processed
            beautiful
            yeah you are

            Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
            lol

              Logic.

                There probably isn't much difference - I guess I am just a sucker for anything that says organic, lol. I like the potato flour for the silkiness of the sauce - it is better than regular flour for texture. She may do better with potato flakes to mimic the texture of bread in a meatloaf.

                      I stand corrected, never heard of organic potato flakes until just now

                        Nor had I. I'd still prefer to buy whole organic potatoes though!
