  • 1 cup fresh soft bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup beef broth
  • ½ cup chopped mushrooms
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon style mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 lbs ground beef

For glaze


  • Add breadcrumbs and beef broth to a small bowl and stir until breadcrumbs are coated. Set aside.
  • Add mushrooms, carrots, onions, and garlic and process until finely chopped. Place in large bowl.
  • Add ground beef, eggs, soaked breadcrumbs, ketchup, Dijon style mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and salt to large bowl. Mix with hands until incorporated. Form into a loaf.
  • Preheat Air Fryer to 390 degrees.*
  • Place Meatloaf in Air Fryer and cook for 40-45 minutes.
  • While meatloaf is cooking, prepare glaze by combining ketchup, brown sugar, and dijon mustard. When there is about 5 minutes left on your timer, spread glaze over meatloaf in Air Fryer.
  • Remove and allow meatloaf to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.



  • Most Air Fryers have a maximum temperature setting of 400. The Phillips brand has a maximum temperature of 390 degrees. 
  • I love using fresh breadcrumbs in this recipe. I take about 4 slices of whatever bread we have around the house, toss 'em in the food processor for about 1 cup of breadcrumbs.
  • Adding vegetables to your meatloaf helps keep it moist and not dense.
  • Wait a few minutes before slicing your meatloaf if you don’t want it to fall apart.
  • Check on your meatloaf periodically. If it starts to get too brown during the cooking process, cover with foil until it's time to add the glaze.
