Equipment Needed

  • Air Fryer – we use a Ninja Foodi Max Dual Zone Air Fryer – the 9.5 litre two drawer cooking space is BRILLIANT when you’re cooking for a family or like to cook bigger portions. And it makes cooking meat, chicken or fish and potatoes at the same time super easy!)
  • Tongs – I’d recommend you get a set of silicone tongs for air frying. They’re super handy and don’t scratch the air fryer non-stick coating. Perfect for flipping over the air fryer hamburgers.
  • Instant read digital food thermometer

ingredients to make air fryer cheese burgers; burger buns, ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, beef patties

  • 4 hamburger buns

How To Make Cheeseburgers In The Air Fryer

You’re going to love how simple air fryer cheese burgers are!

Step One – flatten the patties

  • Okay, you want these burgers to cook quickly, so squash the shop bought burger patties between your hands so they’re a little flatter.

Step Two – put the burgers in the air fryer basket

  • Then arrange the air fryer hamburger patties into the air fryer basket, you need them to be in a single layer with no overlapping.

Step Three – air fry the cheeseburger patties

  • Air fry on 200C/400F for around 10 minutes (or until they’re cooked through – check using a digital meat thermometer)
  • For the last 2 minutes of cooking, add the cheese slices to the top of the burgers so it melts deliciously

Step Four

  • Once the air fryer cheeseburgers are fully cooked through to perfection and the cheese melted on top, serve the burgers on the burger buns with your favourite toppings. We usually go for mayo, Iceberg lettuce, tomato, burger pickles, fried onions, tomato ketchup and mustard.
