Gelatin will help anything hold its shape while cold, including croquettes. Once the gelatin gets hot, it will melt out.

Hi..The Gelatin thing I use for meatloaf is taken from America's test kitchen. It's intended to replace some 'mouth feel' lacking in lean meatloaf that does not have as much fat.
In the application I use 1/2 cup of stock is mixed with 1-2 tsp of unflavored gelatin and used to moisten crackers and other bits for a meat loaf mix.

As for modernist stuff...heat stable gels can be used like Agar Agar, and the carrageans..It would be lab test to use those...as they can be way more powerful than you think in their gelling ability. Like really tiny gram weight stuff can do powerful things with those.
