Sometimes it is TOO hot to go outside…but yet you want a burger. Did you know you can cook one in an air fryer? You can and they are AWESOME!!!!

As always you can use whatever cheese you want on a burger. We used Havarti and Gouda on these because we always just use what we have!

Cook time can be from 8 – 15 minutes. Use a thermometer to gauge doneness.

What temperature should you cook a burger to in the air fryer?

Rare: 120 to 125
Medium Rare: 130 to 135
Medium Well: 150 to 155
Well Done: 160 to 165

  • Vortex Air Fryer


  • 1 lb ground beef or pork or turkey
  • 1 pkg kaiser rolls
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 envelope french onion dip
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • Preheat the Vortex Air Fryer to 400. Place rack in the middle position.
  • Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl
  • Form into patties
  • Place in the air fryer and flip after 4 minutes- depends on doneness it will take 8 - 15 minutes depending on you want them cooked.
  • Cover with cheese and toast an additional minute
  • Cover your buns with butter and toast for 2-3 minutes

You can cook multiple items at once, I do this a lot when I am prepping for the next. Hence, go ahead and cook your meatballs and when you are cooking burgers!

    What setting are the burgers being cooked on….bake, fry, broil??

    • vortexrecipes on January 5, 2020 at 12:59 pm

      Honestly most of the settings do the same thing. For burgers I usually use Bake or AirFry though 🙂

    When publishing recipes, how about adding the particular setting in addition to the time and temperature.

    I am very disappointed that there is no recipe book with my air fryer and these recipes on this website does not show how to cook pork chops

      I went by the settings for the lamb chops she the second diagram next to the french fries . I had to cook them a little more because my pork chops were so thick but they were so juicy and you know it is very hard to have juicy pork chops when you bake them. I did have to rotate the top ones to the bottom and vice a versa because the ones on the bottom were cooking faster . They were divine
