    • Roll the mixture into small, 1-inch balls.
    • Spray the air fryer basket with non-stick cooking spray. Put half of the meatballs in the basket.
    • Air fry at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. I like to stop at the 5 minute mark and flip meatballs over. Cook for additional 5 minutes.

    Tips for the Perfect Meatball

    • Don’t over mix to ensure tender meatballs.
    • Add 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning to the mix for Italian turkey meatballs.
    • Be sure not to crowd the air fryer basket. Cook in two batches to ensure they get cooked evenly.

    CAN YOU FREEZE TURKEY MEATBALLS

    Yes! Cook the meatballs and let them completely cool. Place them on a baking sheet and freeze until solid. Place the frozen meatballs into a freezer safe bag or container. 

    When ready to cook, thaw meatballs and place them back in air fryer for 5 minutes or bake or warm in slow cooker.
