  1. One pound of lean ground beef;
  2. one clove of minced garlic;
  3. one finely diced green bell pepper;
  4. one seasoned bread crumb;
  5. one onion*, finely diced (see note);
  6. two tablespoons of milk;
  7. two tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese;
  8. one tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley;
  9. one egg yolk;
  10. one clove of minced garlic;
  11. one teaspoon of Italian seasoning;
  12. one teaspoon of salt and pepper to taste;
  13. toppings;
  14. one cup of tomato sauce;
  15. one cup of chili sauce.


  • Set air fryer temperature to 350°F.
  • In a large basin, stir together all the meatloaf ingredients just until incorporated.
  • Split the mixture in half, then form each half into a small meatloaf that is about 5″ long by 2″ wide.
  • Cook for twenty minutes in the air fryer.
  • In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients. When the meatloaf reaches 165°F, add the topping and continue cooking for another five to seven minutes.
  • Give it five minutes to rest before serving.


  • Fry the onion in 1 tablespoon butter until cooked for a softer onion flavor. Let cool fully before incorporating.
  • Mix the meat just until incorporated; do not overmix.
  • Before you add the meatloaf, preheat the air fryer.
  • Make sure you use an instant read thermometer to check the internal temperature of the meatloaf and make sure it reaches 165° F. Air fryers can vary in this regard.
  • To make sure the meatloaf doesn’t overcook, check it early. As needed, extend the duration.
  • Before slicing, give the meatloaf a rest to prevent it from crumbling.
