It is also available in a variety of fat percentages. The most common ones I see are 99 percent lean (white meat), 93 percent lean, and 85 percent lean.

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Fryer Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

Why does my turkey meatloaf fall apart?

The most typical reason for your meatloaf falling apart is a lack of binding agents, such as eggs and breadcrumbs.

These components are essential since they are what hold the meat mixture together and keep it together as it cooks.

How do I cook meatloaf without drying it out?

Slow and steady wins the race.

Some recipes call for cooking your meatloaf at temperatures as high as 425 degrees Fahrenheit. The best oven temperature for a moist meatloaf, according to noted culinary specialist Alton Brown, is 325 F.

If the oven is excessively hot, the cooking time will be reduced, but the meat will become dry.

Is panko a good binder for meatloaf?

Panko is a Japanese breadcrumb that is also great for meatloaf. They may or may not contain salt; use with caution.

Because they absorb liquids more slowly than other breadcrumbs, you may need to soak them for a longer period of time to determine the consistency.
