I like to use some almond flour/almond meal in my sauerkraut meatloaf.
Adding some mashed potato or cooked white rice might also help with the binding without imparting liquid to your loaf.

I sort of wondered if I needed to saute the vegetables a bit before adding to the mix. It would guarantee everything is cooked when it's finished. I'll have to use my Ninja my food processor is still in storage. Hope it will work as well. Thanks

Actually, sauerkraut meatloaf doesn't sound so bad. I was thinking about adding some sauteed cabbage as one of the vegetables anyway.

I like my meatloaf "just meatloaf" too but I'm trying to put together something I can warm up at work quickly.

I have noticed with my food processor that onions give off a lot of moisture and can get mushy, squeezing out the excess moisture with paper towels would help the wetness problem.
