Make Easy Parmesan Meatballs in the Air Fryer
Love homemade meatballs?
Spaghetti and meatballs are an easy dinner I know my family gets excited for. Even my pickiest eater LOVES a good meatball, and these easy air fryer Parmesan meatballs are something you can throw together easily and they taste DELICIOUS!
I love easy air fryer meal ideas!
Parmesan meatballs have pretty minimal pantry ingredients you probably likely have on hand, and I like dishes you can pretty much eyeball and not measure super closely like this! Really, you can season them as desired, or leave out an ingredient that doesn’t sound optimal for your family.
I use Parmesan cheese usually, but I happened to have a block of Pecorino Romano that I used today, which tasted amazing and is also Collin’s fave cheese!
Making meatballs in the air fryer is a cinch, too!
They cook in about 13-14 minutes, and while they brown nicely around the outside, they’re still tender inside. One of the benefits of air frying I like is that it’s super easy to open and close the drawer to check on how things are cooking. I have a 6-quart Nuwave air fryer that I use often and love!
Don’t have an air fryer? Just follow the same directions except bake them on a sheet pan for about 20 minutes on 350 degrees in a traditional oven.
After meatballs are done cooking, you can use them in spaghetti or perhaps meatball sandwiches to your liking. I spooned some marinara sauce over mine in a small baking dish, topped with a little extra cheese, and then placed them back in the air fryer for a couple more minutes to melt.

Fantastic tasting meatballs that can be served over pasta and marinara sauce, with simple ingredients and an easy process. My family enjoys this recipe so much, and I know yours will, too.
These meatballs also freeze perfectly! This recipe made about 28 meatballs, and I froze half of them for a later day. Yippee!
