Anyone have a substitute for bread crumbs, that I can put in my meat loaf and meatballs???

I used corn meal tonight, but I'm not sure if that was a good idea or not. The meatloaf was better with that than bread crumbs, but I'm not quite sure if it's gluten free...

Thanks gang.

Also, are all frozen/canned plain veggies gluten-free? I know meat, eggs, cheese, vegies and fruit are...I'm learning slowly.

You can process certified gluten-free oats to make them finer and use them in place of breadcrumbs. Also process plain rice or corn Chex General Mills brand cereal. Any gluten-free bread or cracker or plain cereal can be processed and used. We usually buy a loaf of gluten-free bread just for that purpose and run it through the food processor, put in a ziplock and freeze it. I use it for breading things too. Some people dry their bread first. I have found that some breads get very very hard when dried so I recommend processing them first. For us, any little bits of cracker crumbs, cereal crumbs at the bottom of the box or ends of bread get saved and are used in meatloaf and meatballs. Flopped attempts at baking bread or crackers that were purchased and not cared for end up in such recipes.

Yes, canned plain canned or frozen veggies should be gluten-free. It's always good to be in the habit of checking labels though.
