Air Fryer Turkey Burgers are so easy to make in just 20 minutes! Turkey burger patties have never been so good. When using the air fryer, they turn out perfectly tender and juicy every single time.
What’s in this Air Fryer Turkey Burger Recipe
You only need five basic ingredients to make these turkey cheeseburgers!
- Ground Turkey: You can swap this with ground chicken if you’d like.
- Garlic: Feel free to add more than one clove if you’re craving some garlicky flavor!
- Salt: You can omit the salt if you’re on a low-sodium diet.
- Worcestershire Sauce: This adds SO much flavor to the meat!
- Cheese: I used sliced sharp cheddar and sliced sharp white cheddar— but use any cheese you like (or leave it off).
PRO TIP: Don’t over mix the burger ingredients. Everything should be combined, but over working it can lead to tough and chewy burgers.
What else can I add?
These simple burgers are so delicious! However, you can always try adding dried herbs or spices like paprika or Italian seasoning for a different flavor.
We cook these burgers at 375°F for around 10 to 12 minutes. Air fryer models can run slightly differently, so the best way to check for doneness is to use an instant read thermometer which should register at 165°F.
Yes, so be sure to make a big batch! Let the burgers cool and freeze them on a baking sheet til solid, then transfer to a bag or container. They will keep well for up to 3 months and should be thawed in the fridge before reheating.
Ground turkey is low in fat and high in protein. They are also low carb and gluten-free as they are made without breadcrumbs and you only need a very small amount of oil.
