  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • olive oil spray for cooking


  • Preheat air fryer to 390°F (200°C).
  • Combine all the meatball mixture ingredients in a bowl (everything except the cooking oil)
  • Scoop up a small handful of the meatball mixture and roll into a ball (approximately 1.5 inch is a good size).
  • Spray the air fryer basket with oil to help stop the meatballs sticking.
  • Place meatballs into the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry the meatballs for 12-15 minutes, or until cooked through and brown (they may require longer if you have made large meatballs).
