244 Shares

Let me start by saying, my airfryer is amazing! Why didn’t anyone tell me how good they were? I wouldn’t have waited so long to get one. Since getting THIS ONE at Christmas, I’ve been using it daily and sometimes a few times a day.

Why I love it so much!

  • It cooks so fast!
  • No need for oil (healthy cooking).
  • Easy to wash and use.
  • Even cooking.
  • No need to preheat.
  • CRISPY food.

One of my favourite recipes to cook in the airfryer are these chicken and bacon meatballs. These meatballs can be served on skewers (I bought some half-sized skewers from the supermarket), with pasta, rice, salad or pop them in the school lunch box.

Makes around 12 – 15 meatballs depending on the size.

  • 500 grams chicken mince
  • 140 grams bacon, finely chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 2 tablespoons crushed garlic
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste

Air Fryer Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix.
  2. Roll mixture into bite-sized balls and place onto air fryer basket.
  3. Cook on 180ºc for around 6 minutes, shake halfway.

Oven Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180ºc and line a baking tray with non-stick paper.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix.
  3. Roll mixture into bite-sized balls and place onto the oven tray.
  4. Bake for around 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.
