- 3 to 4 tablespoons dry chopped onion or 1 to 2 teaspoons granulated onion can be substituted for the raw onion.
- If your meatloaf mixture is too soft, replace sliced bread and wine with fresh breadcrumbs. Use a food processor and metal blade to process the sliced bread into crumbs and omit or reduce the amount of wine/water.
- A rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil can be substituted for the loaf pan. Tent loaf with aluminum foil during the first 45 minutes of baking to reduce moisture loss.
