  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 3 tablespoon ketchup


  • Combine finely diced onion, ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, garlic powder, salt, pepper, parsley, thyme, oregano, 1 tablespoon of ketchup and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl using your hands until just combined. Be careful not to over mix it.
  • In another bowl, combine the remaining ketchup with the mustard. Set this to the side.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 375 F / 190 C.
  • Cover the air fryer sides and bottom with a piece of parchment paper, and add the ground beef mixture. Use a spatula or spoon to shape it into a round loaf.
  • Air fry the meatloaf for about 25 minutes.
  • Use a spoon to coat the meatloaf with the ketchup and mustard glaze, and air fry for another 10 minutes.
  • Optionally, you can use a meat thermometer to ensure that the meatloaf is perfectly cooked.
  • Remove the meatloaf from the air fryer, and leave it to rest for about 10 minutes before you slice and serve it.



  • Leftovers: Freeze the meatloaf for up to 6 months, or store it in a sealed container in a fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat, and serve.
  • Temperature: Use a meat thermometer to cook the meatloaf just right. It’s done when a thermometer inserted into the middle of the meat reaches an internal temperature of 160 F / 70 C.
