    Could dry, instant mashed potatoes or flakes be use like the "breading" in meatloaf?

    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    You could also try using potato flour, or tapioca starch I use Bob's Red Mill

    Another option is oven roasted pumpkin or squash makes an excellent filler for meatloaf, burgers, and the like...it's delicious!

    I'm getting interested is resistant starches, that's why I was considering dehydrated, instant mashed potatoes. Is pumpkin or squash a resistant starch too?

    That would be quite convenient and our local grocery carries Bob's Red Mill.

    I'd read the labels carefully - this is one of the best UK brands and there is still stuff in there which isn't potato


    Ocado: Smash Instant Mashed Potato (Product Information)

    Personally, I'd peel a few potatoes, boo them then push them through my potato ricer and use that as a filler.

    Breadsauce, I agree but I've been having some difficulties cooking lately and I've had to make some compromises. I would also expect that boiling whole potatoes would be a lot cheaper.

    I've never used tapioca powder--or even pearls--but that sounds awesome. Cassava is one of my favorite carb sources; its carb texture is absolutely amazing, especially in stews.
