What’s in Air Fryer Hamburger Patties?
These air fryer hamburgers are one of my favorite Air Fryer dinners. They’re so perfectly juicy with a nice crispy outside and they are big on flavor. Just add a slice of cheese to make cheeseburgers if you prefer!
- Ground Beef: I like to use 80% lean beef for my burgers, but you can use whatever you prefer.
- Worcestershire Sauce: Adds a salty and umami flavor to the burgers.
- Spices: Garlic powder, kosher salt, and ground black pepper enhance the natural flavor of the meat.
- Cheddar Cheese: Turns these burgers into cheeseburgers! Feel free to use American, Swiss, or any other cheese you love instead.
Pro Tip: Try this burger seasoning recipe in place of the salt, pepper, and garlic powder for even more flavor!

That’s up to personal preference! Personally, I love my burgers both ways; it just depends on my mood!
You’ll want to preheat your air fryer to 375°F to cook these burgers.
It only takes about 8 minutes to cook these burgers to medium (145°F) in the air fryer.
There’s no need to flip these burgers since the air fryer is designed to circulate around the entire burger.
If you’re worried about making a mess, try using paper or reusable air fryer liners. If using a liner, I do recommend flipping the burgers halfway through cooking to ensure an even cook.
Yes! They’ll need an extra 5-10 minutes of cook time, though!
How to Store and Reheat
Store air fryer hamburgers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in a 400°F air fryer for 3-4 minutes.
How to Freeze
You can freeze cooked or uncooked burger patties. Cooked burger patties will keep well for up to 4 months and uncooked will keep for up to 6. Separate the burgers with parchment paper and place them in an airtight container. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before cooking or reheating.
I like to serve these air fryer hamburgers in a nice soft sesame seed hamburger bun with burger sauce and fresh toppings like lettuce, tomato, red onion, and pickles. You can also keep them low-carb by serving them in a lettuce wrap.
