- Combine milk and breadcrumbs
In a small bowl add the breadcrumbs and milk. Use a fork to combine, making sure to break up any large lumps.
- Mix all ingredients
In a large bowl, using your hands, mix the ground pork, one egg, the breadcrumb and milk mixture, and your finely chopped sage, parsley, rosemary, thyme, onion and celery along with the salt the pepper. Mix until just combined.
- Form meatballs
Form meatballs and add to the air fryer rack. Your meatballs will be approximately two flat tablespoons in size. Arrange meatballs leaving plenty of space between each one to allow airflow.
- Air fry the meatballs
Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees, add the meatballs and cook for 9-11 minutes. If cooking on 2 pans rotate halfway through. If you’re cooking in a basket-style air fryer be sure to turn the meatballs halfway through. Cook until the internal temperature is 160 degrees.
