  • Air Fryer
  • Chopping board
  • Paper towel


  • 2 beef patties Note 1
  • 2 hamburger buns
  • 2 slices cheese
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • beetroot optional
  • pickles
  • onions
  • sauce Note 2


  • Turn the air fryer on to 180°C/350 F for 15 mins (allow 5 mins to preheat if your model requires it) Note 2
  • Spray the Air Fryer basket (or line tray) with a little olive oil
  • Place beef patties into the Air Fryer and cook for 5 mins
  • Remove the Air Fryer basket, place on a heat proof surface, use a silicon flexible turner to flip the patty and cook for a further 5-10 mins (5 if fresh, 10 if frozen)
  • Remove Air Fryer basket, place on heatproof surface, use silicon flexible turner to remove cooked beef patties, place on paper towel and rest for 1 min
  • Add cook beef patty to burger bun, place slice of cheese on top followed by top of burger bun use a toothpick to secure burger, Air Fry for 1 min to allow cheese to melt Note 3
  • Remove Air Fryer basket and place on heatproof surface. Assemble the burgers using the lettuce, tomato, beetroot, pickles and onions, drizzle with sauce


  • Note 1 You can use either frozen or fresh beef patties. If using frozen, they will take approximately 5 mins longer to cook than using fresh beef patties. 
  • Note 2 The sauce you see in the photos throughout the post is the Spicy Yogurt Sauce. A nice change from a sweet ketchup or mustard but feel free to use your favorite sauce!
  • Note 3 This method ensures that the cheese will stay on the beef patty. I tested along the way and found if I didn't use this method, the cheese would 'fly off' and melt through the basket alongside but not ON the beef patty.
