How to air fry hamburger patties

Here’s a concise breakdown to ensure each step is clear and easy to follow:

  1. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, butter, eggs, bread crumbs, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix well to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  2. Divide the seasoned ground beef into four equal portions, about 200g each. Gently shape each portion into a patty about 1/2-inch thick, ensuring they are uniform in size for even cooking.
  3. Place the patties in the cooking tray and slide the tray into the air fryer. Set the air fryer to “Roast” mode at 375°F (190°C). Cook the patties for 8 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time. If adding cheese, place it on the patties during the last 2 minutes of cooking to allow it to melt.
  4. Remove the patties from the air fryer using tongs and place them on a plate. Spread mayonnaise or ketchup on the bottom halves of toasted hamburger buns. Layer with sliced tomato, onion, and the beef patty. Add pickles and cover with the top bun.
  5. Serve the burgers hot, allowing the flavors to meld together beautifully. Enjoy your homemade, air-fried beef burgers that are not only juicy but also healthier due to the cooking method.

This method ensures a delicious outcome with a perfect balance of textures and flavors, making your homemade burgers a hit at any meal. Enjoy your cooking!

How long should I put hamburgers in the air fryer?

Cooking hamburgers in an air fryer is a quick and convenient method that results in delicious, juicy burgers. The cooking time can vary slightly based on your patties’ thickness and the specific air fryer’s specific model.

The USDA recommends cooking ground meat to an internal temperature of 160°F (71°C) to minimize the risk of foodborne illnesses. This temperature is critical as it ensures that any harmful bacteria present in the meat are thoroughly destroyed, making the hamburger safe for consumption.

It’s essential to use a dependable instant-read meat thermometer to measure the internal temperature of your hamburgers. This step is key not only for food safety but also for making sure your burgers are cooked just the way you like them.
