2 slices white bread

1/2 cup milk 

8 ounces ground beef 

8 ounces ground pork 

1/4 yellow onion, grated 

3/4 teaspoon ground allspice 

1 large egg 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Nonstick cooking spray, for the tray 

Lingonberry jam, for serving  


Special equipment:
a 3.5-quart air fryer
  1. Soak the bread in the milk in a medium bowl for 5 minutes. Squeeze out excess milk and tear into bite-size pieces. Mix the bread with the ground beef, pork, onion, allspice, egg, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Form into small balls about the size of a heaping tablespoon.
  2. Spray the basket of a 3.5-quart air fryer with cooking spray and fill it with the meatballs. Set the air fryer to 360 degrees F and cook, shaking the tray halfway through, until browned, tender and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve with lingonberry jam.
