How to Cook Frozen Burgers in the Air Fryer


Frozen burgers in the air fryer make for a quick dinner, that tastes as good as on the grill. Healthy and start to finish ready in under 15 minutes. You can even add cheese!


  • 3 frozen burgers (or any amount you need, see notes)
  • optional- salt to season, cheese


  1. Preheat the air fryer at 375°F for 5 minutes. Season burgers with a sprinkle of salt if using. 
  2. Once preheated add frozen burgers to the air fryer basket in a single layer. They can touch, but should not overlap. See notes. 
  3. Cook for 6 minutes and then flip burgers with a spatula. Cook for an additional 6 minutes or to an internal temperature of 160°F for a well done burger. Your cooking time may vary depending on the size of your burger. See notes. 
  4. If topping with cheese, after you have reached final cooking temp, place cheese slices on burgers and cook for an additional 1 minute. 


  • You can cook as many burgers as you need for your family. Depending on the size of your burgers and air fryer you may need to do multiple batches. 
  • All burgers will be different sized. Using a digital meat thermometer will be best. If your burgers are not done at 12 minutes, cook in 1-2 minute increments until desired temperature is reached. 
  • Remove burgers from the basket and serve as desired! Ideas include, topping on a bun, burger bowls or even plain with a side of fries or salad.
