  • In large bowl, combine panko and milk and set aside for 5 minutes.
    1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp milk
  • After 5 minutes, add onion flakes, garlic, turkey, pork, egg, parsley, rosemary, thyme, mustard and salt. Mix gently to combine. (You can use all ground turkey if you like – but I like the extra flavor that pork adds!)
    2 tbsp onion flakes, 2 tbsp minced garlic, 1/2 lb ground turkey, 1/2 lb ground pork, 1 large egg, 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, 1/2 tbsp dried thyme, 1 tbsp dijon mustard, 1 tsp coarse sea salt
  • Gently shape mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place balls in a single layer in air fryer basket.

  • Serve over pasta with marinara, in sandwiches or as appetizers on their own.
