Air fryers make delicious and juicy burgers that are cooked to perfection. These air fryer hamburgers are so simple to whip up and no fuss. Dinner is ready in 25 minutes. This will be your new go to recipe!
▢ 1 lb ground beef
▢ ¼ c onion, very small diced
▢ ½ c shredded cheese (I like cheddar jack)
▢ 1 egg
▢ 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
▢ 2 garlic cloves, minced
▢ 1 teaspoon dried parsley
▢ ½ teaspoon cracked pepper
▢ ½ teaspoon sea salt
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and stir to fully incorporate. Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts and form into patties.
Press gently in the center of each patty to form a small indentation. This will help the burgers to cook evenly and keep them from swelling up.
Preheat air fryer to 350°F.
Place burgers into the basket of the air fryer, allowing them to be spaced out and not touching. You can cook these in batches if you don’t have enough space.
Cook the burgers for 5 minutes and then flip and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 150°F for medium well or 160°F for well done.
Add your favorite burger toppings and enjoy!
Choose the best meat. I advise not using anything leaner than 80/20 for the juiciest, most flavorful air fryer burgers. You can certainly go leaner if desired, you just may lose a touch of flavor and juiciness. They will still be delicious.
Cooking the cheese right into the burger is a great option however you can add a slice on top in the last minute if desired. I prefer just cooking it right in with the burger. Things tend to blow all over the place in the air fryer so having it intact makes it all the better.
Toast your buns in the air fryer after pulling the burgers out if desired. We are huge fans of brioche buns these days and I literally cannot eat a burger with anything less.
You shouldn’t need any oil or spray oil when making this recipe. The burgers should easily flip in the air fryer. The natural juices and oil from the burger will be all you need, but if you are worried about, you can mist the basket lightly.
