How To Make Air Fryer Burger Patties

Making your air fryer burger patties is super easy and you just need a few ingredients:

juicy air fryer burger patty ingredients

  • ground meat
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • ketchup
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • salt

Take all of your ingredients and combine them in a large bowl. Mix everything up well. Use your hands, it’s okay to get a little messy!

To form my burger patties I like to use a burger press. You can snag this burger press for like $10 on Amazon. (affiliate) Trust me, it’ll be one of your fave random purchases you didn’t even know you needed!

Once your patties are formed I like to put them in the fridge until it’s time to cook them, ideally at least 20 minutes. This just helps them to set and be a little less likely to fall apart. If you have to skip this step, no biggie!

PS. If you ever get confused on what the difference between the what seems like 80 different types of ground meat are, checkout this post that has everything you need to know about ground beef!

Can I Make An Air Fryer Turkey Burger?

Sure thing! All you have to do is swap ground beef for ground turkey. You could even make these into air fryer chicken burgers if you wanted to! You do you!

How To Air Fry A Hamburger Patty

To cook your air fryer hamburgers first you’re going to want to spray your air fryer basket with non-stick spray.

Then, lay down your patties into the basket. How many you can fit really depends on the size of your air fryer. Mine can fit 2-3 burger, but 4 is a stretch. You don’t want to overcrowd the basket or they won’t cook evenly.

Cook your air fryer hamburgers (or air fryer turkey burgers!) for a total of 10 minutes at 370 degrees. Flipping once halfway through the cooking time.

If you like your burgers more on the rate size you can check them at the 8 minute mark. If you like them more well-done you can increase the temp to 400 and cook for an additional 1 minute for a little more crispiness.

Can You Air Fry Burger Patties That Are Frozen?

Absolutely! You don’t even need to thaw a frozen burger patty in order to cook it in the air fryer. You can just throw it in there, just like a non-frozen burger patty. However, you will need to increase the cooking time by ~5 or so minutes.

Can You Air Fry Burgers And Fries Together?

Yes! If you’re cooking for one you can do them side by side. The cooking temps and times are similar if you look at my recipe for air fryer frozen french fries.

However, if you’re cooking multiple burger patties you’re going to want to use an air fryer layering rack. Most air fryers will come with one, but if yours doesn’t have one you can snag an air fryer layering rack from amazon for $10 bucks. (affiliate)

Juicy Air Fryer Burger Patties

Yield: 4 Patties
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

The easiest, juiciest burger recipe around! In just 15 minutes you can have mouth watering air fryer burger patties that everyone will love.

Ingredients

  • 1lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. In a medium to large sized bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. I like to use my hands!
  2. Divide mixture into 4 equal parts and form each part into a patty. I like to use a burger press for even patties.
  3. Ideally, place your patties in the fridge for ~20 minutes, or pop them in the freezer for about 5. This will help them stay together a bit more, but if you have to skip this step no biggie!
  4. Spray the basket for your air fryer and place patties inside, ideally not touching, but it's okay if they do just a bit.
  5. Set your air fryer to 370 degrees and cook for a total of 10 minutes, flipping your burgers once halfway through. If you like them crispier you can crank up the air fryer to 400 for 1-2 minutes.

Notes

You can really use any kind of ground meat you like. Ground chicken or turkey would work, too.

You can also use any kind of fat percentage of meat. The more fat it has the more juicier your result will be. I typically like a percentage somewhere in the middle of ~10% fat. an 80/20 will give you the juiciest!

Feel free to dress up your burgers however you like! I like to have mine on a bun with some copcycat chick fil a sauce or on a big mac in a bowl hamburger salad!
