Make a juicy Hamburger with your Air Fryer. Serves 4.

Using an air fryer to make hamburgers is a very understated way to spice up this classic. I also always love the hamburgers on the grill. But maybe you don’t have a barbecue or the weather is too hot/cold/stormy to grill outside.

This fantastic recipe defines what it’s like to try a hamburger. Not only are they easy to whip, but they’re also incredibly tasty and juicy – just like burgers should be. These deep fryer burgers require as little maintenance as possible, but they make a great meal any night of the week.
