  • Depending on the size of your air fryer, you’ll cook them in batches.
  • Line your fryer basket with liners, if you use them. Otherwise, spray with cooking spray.
  • Place meatballs in the basket, making sure they do not touch each other or the sides of the basket.
  • Cook at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Pull out the basket and turn the meat balls over. Return to fryer and cook at 350 degrees for another 4 minutes.
