What can I use in meatloaf instead of crackers?

Chef's answer
For some extra flavor, add about 1/4 cup of finely chopped bell peppers and a shredded carrot to the meat mixture. For a moister loaf, saute the vegetables briefly in about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil or butter. Instead of crackers, feel free to use fine dry breadcrumbs. Or use some quick oats instead of bread.
