How to Make Air Fryer Homemade Hamburgers:

Step 1: Make up the hamburger meat

Start by combining the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and a pinch of cayenne pepper to your liking in a large mixing bowl. 

Mix it all together until the seasonings are fully combined into the ground beef.

Step 2: Make the beef patties

After the hamburger meat is made up, take the beef mixture and make up 3-4 hamburger patties depending on how big you want them to be. 

Then, preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C for 5 minutes. 


Step 3: Cook the homemade hamburgers

Place the patties in the air fryer basket and cook at 380 degrees F or 193 degrees C for 4-8 minutes. The cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the patties. 

It will be finished when the internal temperature of the patties reaches 160 degrees F or 71 degrees C. You can use an instant read thermometer to tell the doneness of the burgers easily.

  • Recipe is so quick and easy! Resulted in juicy delicious burgers. Much faster than a grill. Just make sure not to overmix the seasons in the burgers too much. It makes the meat tough. I love my burgers with red onion, lots of tomatoes, and mustard! Love my air fryer!
