Best time and temperature to cook frozen burgers in the air fryer.
This answer to cooking time will depend on the thickness of the burgers and also the air fryer. If cooked at 370 degrees F, you will need anywhere from 9-15 minutes. I like to check mine with a meat thermometer. I would say the average frozen burger patty will take 10 minutes to cook.
Rare Burger – 8-10 minutes at 370 degrees F with internal temperature of 120 degrees F.
Medium – 10-12 minutes at 370 degrees F with internal temperature of 150 degrees F.
Well Done – 12-15 minutes at 370 degrees F with internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
If you would like to make a cheeseburger, simply lay a slice of cheese on top of the burger once it’s finished cooking. Place the air fryer basket back inside the air fryer and let it sit for 30-45 seconds. The cheese should melt and be ready to serve.
How do you make frozen turkey burgers taste better?
Dress them up of course! Think about:
The more the better when it comes to sliders and burgers to me. Yes the meat is important and typically the star of the show but that is just the very beginning. If I can find beautiful avocados at the store I will grab a ton and load it up with slices. Mash and add some salsa into the mix to make guacamole turkey burgers too.
Now these aren’t for ground turkey. If your meat is defrosted you’d want closer to an 8 minute burger cook time. At 4 minutes flip them over. Test at the end to ensure they reach 165 degrees F.
Internal temperature of 165 degrees will ensure the very middle is not raw and safe to eat. Just sprinkle with salt and pepper if you like, or leave burger patties plain in air fryer basket.
Either way all pieces should stay in a single layer and not overlap or they won’t cook properly. You can cook a turkey burger Ninja foodi grill style too, that has the air crisp function for that.
With preheating time this will take about 15 minutes total, talk about a quick dinner idea! To improve your experience I do recommend spraying your basket lightly with non stick spray.
Time needed: 14 minutes.
