Air Fryer Turkey Meatballs are moist and tender with a crisp outside. They use only a handful of staple ingredients (with lots of room for customizations) and cook up in the air fryer in under 10 minutes. They're a great family friendly option that even picky eater kids will love.


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray


  1. Mix Meatballs - In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients together. I find it easiest to do this with your hands. Don't over mix.
  2. Form Meatballs - Roll into ~1.5 tablespoon sized balls. I like to use a small cookie scoop to achieve even sizes.
  3. Add to Air Fryer - Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Add the formed meatballs to the basket - make sure there is a little space in between them. You may need to cook in two batches.
  4. Air Fry - Air fry the meatballs at 400 degrees F for 7-9 minutes (until the internal temperature is 165 degrees F.


  • Use an Internal Thermometer - Checking the internal temperature is the best way to know that they are done so you don't risk over or undercooking them. The internal temperature should read 165 degrees F.
  • Don't Crowd the Air Fryer Basket - It's best to leave a little space in between each meat balls so the hot air can circulate. You may need to cook them in two batches.
