Theory of meatloaf: need help, mine come out like bricks

I'm trying to come up with a recipe for meatloaf that does not use breadcrumbs or bread, or tomatostuff.

I usually make meatloaf with eggs, and of course spices of various sorts, but they usually wind up coming out like bricks.

It looks to me like a reasonably moist meatloaf uses some sort of liquid, such as ketchup, milk, tomato sauce, etc. And it looks to me like the purpose of the breadstuff is to soak up liquid, thus trapping it.

Anyone have any observations about meatloaf? Any really unusual recipes out there?
