you can crush some unsalted Saltines, oyster crackers or plain water crackers (like Carrs). Any plain, not too sweet cracker without topping, like salt or seeds, will work. Plain pita chips or bagel chips will work too. Just crush them up.

depends upon what you are making, but any plain, not sweet at all cracker would do. Be sure to crush them VERY fine.

You can use unflavored bread crumbs or flour for a substitute.

You only can't do the above substitutions if the recipe is for Passover. For that you need matzo meal.

What is it you are making? Breading? Can't be matzoh balls, or you would be needing more.

If it's for matzo balls, you can use farina. It will be a bit lighter in texture, but still work.

If strict kosher, use matzo, otherwise panko with a pinch of salt.

I have a friend who has coeliac disease so I have to look for a gluten free alternative when they come round. I use rice crumbs made by Orgran - www.orgran.com and have made awesome meatballs and fish cakes.
