  • COSORI Air Fryer XL
  • Ninja Foodi Air Fryer


  • 16 frozen meatballs or 4 meatballs per person


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  • Open the bag of meatballs and dump them in the air fryer's basket.
  • Set the timer for 8 minutes, shaking the meatballs in the basket halfway through the cook time. Since all air fryers cook differently, check to make sure they do not burn in the last couple minutes of cooking.
  • Remove the meatballs from the air fryer when the timer is up. Serve with your favorite sauce.
  • Enjoy!



Nutritional information is approximate and is meant as a guideline only.
Fridge: Cooked meatballs will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days.
Freezer: The meatballs were already cooked and frozen before frying them in the air fryer. If they are refrozen, bacteria could start growing on them, which is not good.
Top tips:
  • Use homemade meatballs that are frozen for the best flavor, and you can feel good knowing that the meatballs contain no artificial ingredients.
  • The length of time to cook the frozen meatballs depends on the size of the meatballs, the size of your air fryer, and how hot the air fryer cooks. Keep an eye on the meatballs to make sure they do not overcook.
  • Shake the air fryer basket halfway through the cooking time so the meatballs cook evenly.
