Air Fryer Meatloaf Recipe

Air fryer meatloaf is a family friendly meal that is sure to become a regular on your weekly menu. Amazing crust on the outside and perfectly moist on the inside. All topped with a sauce that is crave worthy.

Ingredients needed

Ground beef – You can also use ground turkey. The higher the fat content, the more grease. I typically use leaner beef.

Panko bread crumbs – You could replace with regular bread crumbs, Italian bread crumbs,  gluten-free bread crumbs or quick cooking oats.

Eggs – This helps bind the meatloaf together.

Milk – Adds moisture.
