Ingredients For Air Fryer Hamburgers

How to Make Air Fryer Hamburgers


Ground Beef  – I use Grade A beef. I typically use an 80/20 blend. If you want a juicier burger, you can use ground beef that is 70 percent lean and 30 percent fat.

Paprika – This chili based spice has a sweet flavor while adding a little kick. 

Garlic Powder –  garlic complements almost any savory dish

Onion Powder -gives a mild onion flavor and blends well with other spices

Burger Toppings – see recommended list below. 

Buns – Use your favorite burger bun.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder


  • In a medium bowl, combine ground beef and seasonings until well combined. Don’t over work the meat though, it will become tough.
  • Divide beef into 4 equal portions, roll into balls and form into patties
  • Preheat Air Fryer to 370 degrees F
  • Add patties in a single layer into the basket
  • Cook for 6-7 minutes, flip burgers and continue cooking until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F, about 3-5 minutes
  • Add cheese, if using, and cook until cheese is melted, about 1 minute.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite toppings

Timesaving Tips to make this perfect every time

  • Double this recipe and when making the patties, freeze half of them for dinner another night.
  • Don’t use pre-made patties, you will get a better flavor making the patties yourself. 
  • Don’t forget to warm the hamburger buns. A cold bun will take away from a delicious burger. 


What Should I Serve With Air Fryer Burgers?

I like to serve them with a variety of toppings. Some of my favorites are:

  • Cheese
  • Red onion
  • Romaine Lettuce leaves
  • Sliced Tomato
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • Bacon
  • Pickles

Can I cook frozen hamburgers in the Air Fryer?

Yes, you can. Preheat the air fryer to 380°. Set the temperature to 380°F and cook for 9-10 minutes.
Then flip the burgers over and cook for an additional 9-10 minutes.

How Long Does it Take to cook a hamburger in the Air Fryer?

Air fryers heat differently, so it depends. It typically takes from 5-10 minutes for each side to cook. I recommend that you check the meat after about 6-8 minutes to be sure it does not overcook.

We just got an air fryer a week or so ago! And just used it for the first time (not for burgers). We are having burgers tonight, and with this rain, better not grill outside. Woohoo!
