Servings 4 servings


  • 1 medium onion minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  • Saute minced onion in 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. Make a foil sling, place it in the air fryer- this will make it easier to lift the meatloaf out of the pan later. You do not need to line the whole basket with foil.
  • Use your hands to mix the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, ketchup, mustard, seasoning salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley, milk, and sauteed onion. Form this mixture into a loaf about 6 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 2 inches high.
  • Place the meatloaf onto the foil sling Bake the meatloaf for 15 minutes at 370 degrees. During this cooking time, make the glaze.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and garlic powder. Pour the glaze over the top of the meatloaf. Return the meatloaf to the air fryer and bake for another 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer reaches 160 degrees.
  • When the meatloaf is finished cooking, rest it on the counter for 5-10 minutes before cutting it with a sharp serrated knife.


If you prefer not to use the foil, you just need really good lifters to remove the loaf from the air fryer.  I like the foil because it is easy to lift and easier to clean after.  This loaf is very moist and will need to cool in order to cut neatly.
Cooked meatloaf will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge.  Or you can make it ahead and wrap it in foil or plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge a day before cooking it.  Meatloaf may be frozen baked or before baking.  Either way, it will last up to 6 months in the freezer.  Just allow it to thaw to room temperature before baking or reheating it.  Reheating slices of cooked meatloaf will take about 5 minutes at 350 degrees in the air fryer.
