Substitution for Eggs in Meatloaf

November 5, 2009

Meatloaf with several slices ready to be servedIf you are on a diet to lower your cholesterol or want to limit the use of eggs for other reasons, you can omit the egg when you make meatloaf. Substitute 1/4 cup tomato sauce, beef broth, or even applesauce for the egg in your recipe. I made meatloaf last week using ground turkey and extra-lean, ground beef mixed half and half. I used tomato sauce in place of the egg.


It not only tasted delicious, but the tomato sauce made the ground turkey look reddish like beef. Ground turkey is not only cheaper than ground beef, it is better for your health.

Warm wishes for good health always.

I use bread crumbs instead of eggs, and it works great.

Our original question doesn't talk about having an egg allergy. Another possibility is simply that someone is out of eggs but wants to make meatloaf without running to the store. Mayo would be a good substitution then.


For an egg free meatloaf, I would probably try flaxseed. It is a commonly suggestion substitution for eggs in all sorts of recipes.
