For month’s I’ve been eying an Air Fryer and finally decided to bite the bullet and bought this 3.2 qt by Elite Platinum . Despite it’s catchy name, an air fryer is essentially a convection oven on your counter. You can bake, roast and make crispy fries in a fraction of the time without using cooking oils. As with any new appliance, I needed recipes and lucky me, my friend Dr. Karen Lee just released a fantastic new cookbook called Paleo Cooking with your Air Fryer.

Grab this recipe for Meatloaf Sliders that are easy to make and Keto to boot!
- 1 lb ground beef, 80/20 fat
- 2 eggs, beaten
- ¼ C onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- ½ C blanched almond flour, extra fine
- ¼ C coconut flour
- ¼ C ketchup
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 tsp Italian Seasoning, See below
- ½ tsp Tarragon, dried
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well. Make patties that are
- about 2” in diameter and about 1” thick. If you want to make thicker or thinner patties,
- make sure all of them are similar in size, so they cook properly at the same time. Place the patties on a platter and refrigerate for 10 minutes for the flour to absorb the wet ingredients and the patties to become firm.
- Preheat the air fryer to 360°F.
- Place as many patties you can fit in the basket and close. Set the timer for 10 minutes.
- Check the patties half way. When the timer goes off, take them out to a serving platter and cover until all the patties are cooked.
- These sliders are perfect on your favorite paleo breads or biscuits (P.164) or on lettuce wraps or with a side of spring greens.
