Help with tofu loaf

I made a tofu loaf tonight with the following recipe:

1 1/2 lbs tofu, mashed
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 cup bread crumbs, crushed

Mix all ingredients together and press into loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour at 350. Let cool for 10-15 minutes.

(Sans the parsley, because we didn't have any.)

I followed all of the directions exactly, but the loaf came out very crumbly. It was impossible to slice and was basically just crumbled tofu. I know it was not supposed to be as such because the recipe even suggests slicing it to make sandwiches.

I used extra firm tofu.

Any suggestions as to how to make it firmer/stay together next time?
