Can you make them ahead of time?

Yes! You can make the burger patties up to 3 days ahead of time and keep them stored, covered in the fridge. Air fried burgers will keep well for around 2 days and can be reheated in the air fryer at 400F for 3 to 4 minutes.

Can you freeze the burgers?

You can freeze cooked or uncooked burger patties. Cooked burger patties will keep well for up to 4 months and uncooked will keep for up to 6. Separate the burgers with parchment paper and place in an air tight container.

Thaw frozen burgers at room temperature before reheating.

What do you serve them with?

I like to serve these air fryer hamburgers in a nice soft sesame seed bun with fresh toppings like lettuce, tomato, red onion and pickles. You can also keep them low carb by serving them in a lettuce wrap.

Serve these burgers with your favorite sides like…

  • Preheat your air fryer before adding the burgers so that they cook through evenly.
  • Don’t overwork the burger mixture with your hands as this can cause them to become tough and chewy.
  • Let the burgers rest for a couple of minutes before serving so the the juices redistribute.
