This recipe is based of using the COSORI Air Fryer (5.8QT model, affiliate link).

I see a lot of recipes out there that take 16-20minutes, that seems awfully long to me, especially for a relatively thin patty. Obviously your mileage may vary based on the thickness and weight of your burger patty and how many you try to load in the air fryer at once. Remember, the less crowded the fryer basket, the quicker you’ll find things cook.

For the above recipe I’m using 1/4lb burgers with minimal ingredients; I personally prefer as simple a burger patty as possible – let the quality of your meat shine through I say. For the above recipe I simply took a quarter pound of meat, formed it loosely into a ball and then pressed it down into a thin patty. Finally, I seasoned with salt and pepper before cooking.

The above recipe should yield a well done burger that creeps over the magic 160F mark that’s recommended for when you cook ground beef from the store.
