  • Split the mixture in half, taking half and placing it on a sheet of aluminum foil.

  • Mold the meat into a loaf shape, then bring in the sides of the aluminum foil and fold them down.

  • Fold the top and bottom and bring them into the sides to create a foil container for the loaf. If folded properly, this should leave the top of the meatloaf exposed.

  • Aluminum foil is easy to wrap around the loaves, but you may also be able to use mini loaf pans (disposable or reusable) if you have them available.
  • Be careful not to over-mix the meat mixture. Mix until just combined.
  • Don't skip preheating the air fryer before adding the loaves to cook. This is an important step to the meatloaf cooking properly.
  • Just like ovens, air fryers can vary. Check the meatloaf before the 30 minutes is up using a meat thermometer to ensure it does not overcook. Check at the 15 minute mark, and continue cooking as necessary.
  • Don't skip out on resting the meatloaf after cooking it. Let it rest or it will fall apart when you try to slice it.
  • You can prepare extra of the ketchup and spice mixture to glaze the top of the meatloaf before they finish cooking if desired. Simply mix ketchup and the spices in a small bowl and brush over the meatloaves 5-10 minutes before the 30 minutes is up.
