Air Fryer Pork Meatballs

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Perfectly crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside--pork meatballs made in the air fryer. The best part is that you can make them ahead of time and freeze for later use. I have included those directions in the notes. Dip meatballs in marinara, if desired."

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine pork, sausage, bread crumbs, egg, salt, parsley, and paprika in a large bowl and mix until evenly combined. Form into 12 equally-sized meatballs using an ice cream scoop. Place meatballs on a baking sheet.
  3. Place 1/2 of the meatballs in the basket of the air fryer and cook for 8 minutes. Shake the basket and cook for 2 minutes more. Transfer to a serving plate and let rest for 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining meatballs.


  • Cook's Note:
  • These can be made ahead and frozen for later use. After step 2, place the baking sheet in the freezer for 4 hours. Transfer meatballs to a freezer-safe container. Cook time will need to be increased to 14 minutes when cooking them frozen (cook for 10 minutes, shake, and then cook 4 minutes more).

I just made these. The only changes I made was the sub regular sausage for Italian, because it was what I had on hand. Same with Italian bread crumbs for Panko. They look and smell fantastic.
