How do you keep turkey meatloaf from falling apart?

In my experience, the key to preventing turkey meatloaf from falling apart is all about the binders. Using ingredients like eggs and bread crumbs in the right proportion can help bind the meat together. Also, remember that over-mixing can lead to a dense meatloaf, so mix just until the ingredients are combined. Letting the meatloaf rest for about 15 minutes after it comes out of the oven can also help it hold its shape. Lastly, ensure your cooking temperature is right, a too high or low temperature may cause your meatloaf to crumble.
