  • 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tbs dehydrated minced onion OR 1/2 cup fresh minced onion
  • 2 tbs water
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups stuffing mix i.e. Stove Top, Pepperidge Farm crushed
  • 1/4 cup milk OR cream
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Sliced cheese optional


  • Place the stuffing mix, instant onion/onion in a large bowl. Add the water and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the remaining ingredients (but not the cheese if you are using) to the bowl and mix well.
  • Place a parchment sheet in the basket of the air fryer. To aid removal, also put some strips of heavy aluminum foil to the bottom of the basket (see photo in post).
  • Shape the meat mixture into a loaf shape (like a football) and place it on top of the parchment and aluminum foil strips.
  • Set air fryer to 325 degrees F and cook for 30 minutes. Test for doneness with a meat thermometer. For all beef, it should read at least 160 degrees F.
  • Place cheese on top, if using. The residual heat will slightly melt it.
