This easy recipe for air fryer burgers is perfect for any night of the week. With all fresh ingredients, you can have tender, juicy, perfectly cooked burgers on your plate in about 20 minutes.


  • 1 lb ground beef (85/15)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground white pepper


  1. In a large bowl combine seasonings and ground beef (still cold from fridge). Gently fold the seasonings into the meat so it’s well distributed throughout. Don’t overwork the meat.
  2. Form into four equal patties, then press a dimple right in the middle to prevent patties from puffing up.
  3. Place the patties on a plate and stick in the freezer for 5 minutes (see above about chilling).
  4. Preheat the air fryer to 370°F. When ready, add the patties in a single layer and use the air fry setting set to 8 minutes. Flip the burgers halfway through cooking.
  5. If adding cheese, add it during the last minute.
  6. When done, remove cooked burgers and serve on fresh buns with your favorite toppings.
