How to cook hamburgers in an air fryer

  • First, mix the ground beef and the seasonings together in a bowl. Make sure you do not mix it too much because it will become tough. Just blend it all together enough so the seasonings are well combined.

More tips:

  • Use lean ground beef- This will help cut down on all the grease. Just don’t get too lean of a cut or they will dry out. Normally I get 80/20.
  • Substitute ground turkey for ground beef.
  • Meat thermometer- Make sure the burgers reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees at the thickest portion of the burger.
  • Don’t skimp on seasoning. It gives the burger so much flavor.
  • Make sliders instead of regular size burgers if you have kiddos with smaller appetites. Sliders also work great for parties. Perfect for little hands or when you need smaller portions.
  • Don’t crowd or overlap the burgers in the air fryer. The burgers need to be in a single layer.
