How to Air Fryer Hamburgers
You will need ground protein (beef, turkey, or chicken), garlic powder, salt, onion powder, two hamburger buns, pepper, cheese, some vegetable oil, and toppings (sliced tomatoes & onions, and lettuce). Place the ground beef in a mixing bowl and add seasoning. Mix thoroughly. Once done, make two or more patties depending on the amount of ground beef used for the recipe. Preheat your Cosori Smart WiFi Air Fryer or the model you have to 370 degrees F. Once done, place the two patties in the air fryer basket, leaving space between them. Cook for 8 minutes, flipping them halfway through. Add cheese and cook for an additional minute.
Once the patties are done, it is time to assemble the hamburgers. First, cut the buns in half. Carefully arrange lettuce, air-fried hamburger, freshly cut tomatoes, and onions slices over the half bun and put the other half on top. Repeat for the other bun. Enjoy your hamburgers!
