  • Air Fryer


  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp onion flakes (dried onion)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp light brown sugar


  • Line your air fryer basket loosely with foil.
  • In a large, clean bowl, mix together the Panko bread crumbs, milk, mayonnaise, Worcestershire, onion, parsley, salt, garlic powder, paprika and pepper.
  • Break up the ground beef into small pieces over the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Mix with your hands or a spatula until the Panko breadcrumb mixture is well blended into the beef.
  • Form the mixture into a meatloaf shape, on the parchment paper.
  • Transfer the meatloaf on the parchment paper to the air fryer basket lined with foil.
  • Air fry at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes. Check the internal temperature of the meatloaf. It should be at about 150 degrees F.
  • While the meatloaf is cooking in the air fryer, stir together the ketchup, lemon juice and brown sugar until blended.
  • Use a pastry brush or spoon to spread the ketchup glaze over the almost fully cooked meatloaf.
  • Air fry the meatloaf with the glaze at 400 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • Check to make sure the internal temperature of the meatloaf is 160 degrees F.
  • Allow the meatloaf to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing it to serve.
