Air Fryer Turkey Meatloaf comes out flavorful and moist, with a delicious topping to go over it. Air fried turkey meatloaf is done in under an hour!
In a large mixing bowl, add the egg and beat it. Then add the bread crumbs, milk, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Mix well.
Add the ketchup and Dijon. Mix well.
Add the ground turkey and thoroughly combine the meat with the seasoning mixture.
Shape into a loaf that is even in thickness and will fit in the air fryer basket. This recipe works best in a minimum 7 inch wide basket. A smaller basket will yield a thicker meatloaf, which means a longer cook time.
Put the meatloaf into the air fryer basket and then drape the strips of bacon evenly over the loaf. tuck the bottoms of the bacon under the loaf.
Cook at 350° F for 20 minutes.
While the meatloaf is cooking, mix up the topping sauce. After the 20 minute cook time, open the air fryer and apply a generous amount of the sauce over the top of the meatloaf (try not to double dip into the sauce so you can use the rest to serve with the meatloaf).
Place a piece of sprayed foil loosely over the meatloaf. Cook at 350° F for another 10 minutes.
Open the air fryer and check the temperature with an instant read thermometer. If it says 160°, then let the meatloaf rest for 10 minutes before serving. It will come up to 165°.
If the meatloaf is below 160°, cook for another 5 minutes. You can take off the foil for the last couple of minutes.
Always rest meatloaf for 5-10 minutes after cooking.
Transfer to a serving platter and slice. Serve with the remaining topping sauce.
