  • Air fryer


  • 2 4 oz burger patties Or Plant Based Alternative
  • 2 hamburger buns
  • cheese or other toppings if desired


  • Place your hamburger patty into the basket of your air fryer.
  • Cook your air fryer burger for 8 minutes at 350 degrees F. At the 4 minute mark (halfway through cooking your hamburger), flip the patty over to ensure that it will cook evenly.
  • When the air fryer is done cooking, you can add a slice of cheese and continue cooking for 1 minutes at 350 degrees F to melt the cheese.
  • Remove the hamburger from the air fryer basket and place onto bun.
  • Add desired toppings, and enjoy!



  • This timing works great with Beyond Burgers
  • If you are making your burgers from scratch, be sure to shape the patties into sizes that fit into your air fryer basket.
  • If you are using a frozen burger, add a few extra minutes to the cook time, to ensure that the burger patty cooks all the way through.
  • If you are making a beef or turkey burger, make sure to test the burger with a meat thermometer. For optimal safety, hamburger patties should reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees F before consuming.
  • You can add spices to your burger patties if shaping them from scratch! I love adding liquid smoke to my burgers to give them a fresh grilled taste.
  • If using beef, you can place a little water on the inside of the basket to help prevent smoking. When the fat drains into the basket and sizzles it sometimes smokes a little.
Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
