Make an Air Fryer Meatball Parmesan Sub with frozen meatballs in only 15 minutes! Little prep, little cleanup, and lots of flavor!
Making an air fryer meatball parmesan sub with frozen meatballs is an incredibly quick and simple, yet scrumptious and hearty, dinner.
Frozen meatballs are air fried for 8 minutes, then layered into a hoagie roll with lots of sauce and mozzarella cheese. Air fry the entire sandwich for a few more minutes and you’ve got a toasted meatball parmesan sub with warm and gooey melted cheese!
To make an air fryer meatball sub you need:
- Long hoagie/sub rolls
- Frozen meatballs: or homemade beef meatballs or turkey meatballs if you don’t mind the extra time
- Mozzarella cheese: shredded and sliced both work
- Tomato sauce: a classic tomato sauce is the best or a homemade tomato sauce, if you’re feeling adventurous
- Grated parmesan cheese
How to Air Fry Frozen Meatballs
Air frying frozen meatballs is simple.
For cooked frozen meatballs, air fry at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Poke with a fork when the timer is done. Larger meatballs may need a few more minutes.
For raw frozen meatballs, cook for 12-14 minutes. Air fryers can vary slightly so always check a few minutes early so they don’t become overcooked.
At What Temperature Should I Air Fry Frozen Meatballs?
Raw frozen meatballs can be air fried at 400 degrees while cooked frozen meatballs should be cooked at 350 degrees. Since you are technically only defrosting them, a higher temperature could crisp the outside too quickly while leaving the inside cold
