Quantity. Our air fryer meatloaf is the equivalent of 4.4 pounds. You can half the meatloaf recipe and reduce the cook time by 20% if you are making a traditional 2 pound meatloaf.
Glaze. The glaze is of course optional. I prefer my meatloaf with tomato ketchup, but you can swap this for gravy if you prefer.
