Do you love stuffing but hate making it? I found a recipe for air fryer stuffing balls that are made with ingredients like onion, celery and fresh thyme. They taste delicious and make the house smell amazing! The best part is they can be frozen so if you want to save some for later this Thanksgiving season, go ahead!
prep: 10 mins cook: 15 mins additional: 15 mins total: 40 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 8 stuffing balls
¼ cup no-salt-added chicken broth
5 cups stale bread, cut into cubes
¼ cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon butter
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried parsley
½ teaspoon poultry seasoning
½ cup finely chopped celery
1 egg, well beaten
½ teaspoon salt
Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add celery and onion, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
Combine bread, parsley, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix in cooked onion and celery. Slowly pour egg into the bowl with one hand while mixing with the other to ensure that the mixture is evenly coated. Repeat with chicken broth and mix everything until well combined. Divide stuffing mixture into 8 equal portions, roll into balls, and place on a plate. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
Preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Remove stuffing balls from refrigerator and spray lightly with cooking spray. Place stuffing balls into the air fryer, sprayed side down, without touching one another. Spray the other side lightly.
Cook in the preheated air fryer for 5 minutes, turn, and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
