How Do I Cook Burgers in the Air Fryer?

I like to use the pre-made burger patties from the butcher section of my local grocery store. If you prefer to create and mold your own burgers, use ground chuck 80/20 fat.

Season the burgers with Liquid SmokeWorcestershire sauce and Webber’s Burger Seasoning. Place the burgers in the air fryer on 360 degrees in accordance with the timing noted below.

Here is a Step By Step Guide on How to Make Burgers.

How Long Do You Cook a Hamburger in the Air Fryer?

Cook the burgers for 12 minutes total. Cook for 8 minutes, flip the burgers and cook an additional 3-4 minutes.

Is the Air Fryer Really Healthy?

The air fryer cuts the fat. Air frying cuts up to 80% of the fat of traditional deep frying. Most deep fried foods require 2-3 cups of oil. You will only need a tablespoon with most air fryer recipes. Also, most deep-fried oils use canola or vegetable oil.

I typically use olive oil with the air fryer, which is much healthier.

Yes, you can use aluminum foil in the air fryer.

Quick and Easy Juicy Air Fryer Cheeseburgers is a beef recipe that the whole family will love. This post will show you how to cook burgers in an air fryer and for how long. The recipe also includes instructions for frozen burgers. You can even make air fryer turkey burgers!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Season the ground beef with the liquid smoke, Worcestershire, burger seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste. Form 4 burger patties
  2. Place the burgers in the air fryer. I cooked mine two at a time.
  3. Cook the burgers for 8 minutes on 360 degrees.
  4. Open the air fryer and flip the burgers. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  5. Check the inside of the burgers to determine if they have finished cooking. You can stick a knife or fork in the center to examine the color.
  6. Top each burger with a slice of cheese. Cook for an additional two minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  7. Serve on buns.

Notes

I cooked the burgers two at a time due to the size of my air fryer basket.

Total cook time will vary based on how done you like your burgers. You can also use a meat thermometer to gauge: 125 degrees (rare), 135 degrees (medium rare), 145 degrees for medium, 155 degrees for medium well, and 160 degrees for well done.

I like to serve my burgers on toasted buns. After cooking the burgers, you can let them toast in the air fryer for a couple of minutes.

If you are using turkey burgers, the cook time should remain the same.

You will notice grease in the bottom of the air fryer pan. This did not cause any smoke during the cook process. You should clean the pan right away.

Here is the order in which I load up my burgers:

Bottom Bun (toasted)

Mayo

Lettuce: Fold up the lettuce and form a circular shape so that it covers the bun

Slice of Tomato

Burger

Top Bun (toasted) with ketchup

Secure with a toothpick
