How to Cook Frozen Meatballs in the Air Fryer

Place the frozen meatballs in the air fryer basket, making sure you have enough space between them to allow for air flow.

Now place the air fryer basket in the air fryer and cook at 380°F for approximately 10 minutes (or until the meatballs look golden brown).

Make sure to check them at the 10 minute mark and if necessary, you can cook for an additional 2-3 minutes if they are larger meatballs.
