Quoting Lady GooGoo™:" Hmm. I got a recipe from online, it says to add 1/2 cups of dried bread crumbs. Do you suggest using ... [snip!] ... I'll probably take a look-see at the McCormick packets, I'm going to the grocery store to pick up ingredients before I cook it."
You can use either bread crumbs or crackers.. I just use crackers (Saltines) because we always have them..
The recipe (If I remember correctly) calls for:
2 lbs of ground beef
1/2 cup of milk
and bread crumbs and/or crackers. (I think it calls for 12 crackers)
And of course 1 packet of meatloaf seasoning
I honestly can't remember if it calls for more ingredients than what I listed.. I haven't made it in sooo long.
I just know following that exact recipe the mixture always comes out more runny than anything so I end up using about 2/3 of a pack of crackers. I am not sure if bread crumbs are maybe more absorbent than the crackers so, if you use bread crumbs I honestly am not sure how it will turn out. I can see though that a lot of other mama's on here can definitely guide you with the bread crumbs.
