These air fryer burgers come out so juicy and cook through with no oil necessary! A great way to cook your burgers when you want to keep your kitchen cool.
- 1 lb lean ground beef see note 1
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- ¼ cup breadcrumbs
- 4 burger buns
Mix- In a bowl, combine the ground beef, garlic, worcestershire, salt and egg. When completely combined, add the breadcrumbs and mix until integrated evenly.
Form patties- Divide the mixture into four, then take ¼ of the mixture into the palm of your hand. Work it into a 3-4 inch diameter circular patty that is of even thickness across. Do not exceed 1 inch in thickness. Repeat until you have four patties.
Cook- Pre-heat the air fryer for at least 5 minutes, then add the burger patties to the basket. Cook for 6 minutes, then flip and cook for another 3 minutes. Check the internal temperature has reached 160°F before removing from the air fryer.
Serve- Serve burger patties on a bun with mayonnaise, tomato slices, lettuce or your favorite burger toppings!
