Air Fryer Burgers

Air fryer burgers are quick and easy to prepare and cook with minimal clean-up, and they are every bit as good as grilled hamburgers.

  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, combine ground beef with shredded cheese (if using), along with Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Use hands to mix until just well blended.
  3. Step 3

    Use a burger press or hands to shape meat mixture into 4 burgers (about 6 to 6 1/2 ounces each). Press a thumb into center, making an indentation. This will help patties cook evenly and keep from swelling in the center.
  4. Step 4

    If you won't be cooking them right away, arrange on a baking sheet or place in a container, separated by sheets of wax paper or parchment paper. Refrigerate patties until it's time to cook (up to 2 hours).
  5. Step 5

    Preheat air fryer to 400 F. Place 2 patties (or 4 patties, if your air fryer is large enough) in air fryer.
  6. Step 6

    Turn heat down to 375 F and cook burgers for 9 to 10 minutes, turning after about 6 minutes.
  7. Step 7

    If desired, top each burger with a slice of cheese and continue to cook for about 30 to 60 seconds longer, or just until the cheese is melted.
  8. Step 8

    Assemble burgers on buns with your favorite sauce and toppings.
