- Preheat the oven to 375°. Place frozen turkey burgers in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Put the cookie sheet with the turkey burgers in the oven and position them 5-7 inches from the heat source.
- Cook each side for approximately 6 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
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.

Ok so we first made frozen chicken patties in air fryer. They turned out so well that turkey burgers were next. Let’s be honest, we are a busy family. With kids sports, both of us working full time and having to figure out new meals each week, these are great.

This is what you’ll need to pick up to get ready for this meal, there isn’t much really.
