  • 1 lb ground beef
  • ¼ c onion, very small diced
  • ½ c shredded cheese (I like cheddar jack)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp cracked pepper
  • ½ tsp sea salt


  • In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and stir to fully incorporate. Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts and form into patties.
  • Press gently in the center of each patty to form a small indentation. This will help the burgers to cook evenly and keep them from swelling up.
  • Preheat air fryer to 350°F.
  • Place burgers into the basket of the air fryer, allowing them to be spaced out and not touching. You can cook these in batches if you don't have enough space.
  • Cook the burgers for 5 minutes and then flip and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F.
  • Add your favorite burger toppings and enjoy!


  • We like our burgers cooked pretty nicely. Lighten up on the time if you are interested in a bit more pink in your burgers. Keep an eye on things and you will be golden.
  • Adding cheese on top of a burger in the air fryer is not ideal. So I cook the cheese right into the burger. The amount of cheese in this recipe is on the light side. Feel free to double it up for a more cheesy air fryer burger.
  • You can toast your buns right after pulling the burgers out of the air fryer if desired. We are huge fans of brioche buns these days and I literally cannot eat a burger with anything less.
  • You shouldn't need any oil or spray oil when making this recipe. The burgers should easily flip in the air fryer.
