Gardein The Ultimate Beefless burger

  2. Cook burger patty from frozen
  3. Cook for 6 minutes at 400F
  4. Turn once during cooking

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

This one is slightly tricky and might need your judgment call. The packaging recommends reaching an internal temp of 165F, which I find I can mostly hit after 6 minutes at 400F. That said the patties seem to cook outside in at different speeds, as you can see in this picture below.

The exterior of the burger soars past the 165F target before the interior; with this uneven cooking, be sure to use caution and care when cooking these in the air fryer. A workaround for this might be a slightly lower setting for a little longer cook time.
