llcucf80 5y Tried to make meatloaf once but I didn't have any crackers or breadcrumbs. Looked and looked what else I could use, ah ha, I have oatmeal. You can use oats as a binder. But the oats didn't absorb much of the liquid, so I added more. Still didn't bind, so I added more, and more, and more. I think in the end I ended up using half the container. It still really didn't bind that well, but I didn't know what else to do. Hopefully it'll come together as it bakes. I didn't have meatloaf I found out.
