Air Fryer Recipes

Air Fryer Meatballs recipe


  • 1 pound ground beef (or a combination of beef and pork)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat Your Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Meatball Mixture: In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, egg, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and black pepper. Mix everything together until well combined.
  3. Form Meatballs: Using your hands, shape the meat mixture into meatballs of your desired size. Make sure they’re all roughly the same size for even cooking.
  4. Spray Air Fryer Basket: Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent the meatballs from sticking.
  5. Cook Meatballs: Arrange the meatballs in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they’re not touching each other. You may need to cook them in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  6. Air Fry: Cook the meatballs in the air fryer at 375°F (190°C) for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time, until they are browned and cooked through. The internal temperature of the meatballs should reach 160°F (71°C) when measured with a meat thermometer.
  7. Check Doneness: To ensure the meatballs are cooked through, you can cut into one to check that there’s no pink inside, or use a meat thermometer to verify the internal temperature.
  8. Serve: Once cooked, remove the meatballs from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy them on their own as a snack, with pasta and marinara sauce, or in sandwiches…
