    Breadcrumb substitute for meatloaf?

    Shop Now
    Can anyone recommend a good breadcrumb substitute as a binder for meatloaf? I tried using coconut flour, but the loaf crumbled quite a bit when I sliced it. Any other ideas? I might also try adding more egg whites to see if that does the trick.

    I use more eggs than I did when I used breadcrumbs, and that seems to be the key. Using dried onion instead of fresh also helps. Almond flour is good for texture but doesn't really make anything stick together.

    I haven't tried the pork rinds before... I bet that would work nicely... maybe next time!

    Breadcrumbs are unnecessary. They were originally introduced to traditional meatloaf recipes to stretch the meat further, not as a binding agent, that is what the egg is for.

    Horse semen really is an amazing binding agent.

    I don't use any flour, just eggs. I haven't had any problems, but I think I used more eggs than my recipe called for.

    When I made meatza, I used about 1/4 of shredded parmesan cheese (not the kind in the green container), and it worked great texture and flavor-wise. I think it would be delicious in meatloaf.

    I'll need to try that for my next meatza or meatloaf. Sounds amazing.
