Air Fryers have changed the game for the better! I haven’t turned by stove on in a while! Air Fryers have made cooking so much easier and healthier! Not to mention, the clean up is extremely easy. Thanks to the nonstick surface of the cooking chamber. I did not think I could love this machine any more. Then, I made hamburgers in it! Oh my goodness! These burgers cooked in under 15 minutes. They were extremely juicy! I just had to share my recipe with you!
First things first. I am not a “Salt n Pepper” burger kind of chick. You know how some folks just form the meat into a patty and sprinkle salt and pepper on each side. Not I! Not knocking those that do, but I need a little extra flavor! You can always just use my air frying timing and your own seasoning blend. I do HIGHLY recommend trying my recipe as is. It is truly delicious! In my unbiased opinion of course. Ha!
The burgers were perfect as is. But, I just had to be extra and add cheese! Cheese makes nearly everything better! And these burgers are no different. Just add a cube of your favorite cheese to the center of the meat while forming each patty. As it air fries, the cheese will melt into gooey goodness!
My recipe yields 7-10 burgers depending on the size you make them. Keep in mind that they will shrink a little during the air frying. So, you may want to overcompensate for the size while forming your patties.
There are many different brands of air fryers. So, you make have to adjust my cooking times to fit your unit and to achieve the level of doneness you prefer. This recipe is way to easy and flavor not to try! Look at that cheese!
