Meatloaf Binder? Flour / Flax Meal?

I love meatloaf, and I'm about to do a low-carb variation for the first time.

I'll be making a 1 lb personal meatloaf with one egg, ground pork and beef. I heard that without a little bit of starch or bread the juice leaks out a lot more and I'd like to have a little of that traditional breadcrumb flavor/texture to my recipe.

I have been debating what kind and amounts of binder to use. I have golden flax seed meal, almond meal (unblanched), carbquik, xanthan gum, Dixie Diner's Carb Counters Thicken Up, and Dixie Diner's All-Purpose low-carb flour (which has ingredients like monk fruit, whey and wheat protein, wheat gluten, fiber, etc. added already).

Taking suggestions on amounts and ingredients! I was thinking almond meal and flax seed meal, but not sure how much of each. Any combination of above is fine with me.

Will post results!
