Hello all....I just joined ChefTalk about 5 minutes ago. Can anyone out there help me. I am just a home cook, I am 65 years old, I have made thousands of Meat Loafs but I have never made one that did not fall apart. I have tried hundreds of recipes, all of which taste fine but all fell apart. I have tried one egg, two eggs, three eggs, breadcrumbs, crackers, oatmeal. I have tried all Beef, Beef and Pork, Beef, Pork and Veal. I have tried in a Loaf Pan, Free Form, I even purchased an $80.00 loaf pan with a lift out center and a bottom drain pan that stated it was specifically made for meat loaf. It still fell apart. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong, Should I give up, or seek therapy and move on. Please be honest.
