Sometimes, nothing tastes better than a good, old-fashioned hamburger. This anytime classic meal can be dressed up or down, served with piping hot fries, a side salad, or a simple bag of your favorite chips. In the summertime, the thought of cooking out makes us want to fire up the grill, but in the off-season, in the event of rain, or simply because you want a quicker alternative, trying a hamburger, air fried to perfection, is never a bad choice!
Everyone has his or her own special recipe for hamburger patties. Some add secret sauce to the ground beef. Others add their favorite spices. But whatever your preference–savory, spicy, or tangy–air frying a cheeseburger or hamburger will become a favorite go-to for busy weeknight meals, rainy weekends, and even sunny Fourth of July celebrations. Stay cool in the comfort of your own home while you cook these delectable burgers.
For more formal or health-conscious meal prep, serve these burgers on a whole wheat bun topped with plenty of veggies, alongside nutritious spinach and strawberry salad. No carbs? No problem! Wrap these patties between two pieces of artisan lettuce and enjoy! For less formal events or cookouts, serve with fries, onion rings, or your favorite chips. To add variety, you can also experiment with different types of cheese, like jalapeno cheddar or smoked Havarti, or different buns, like sourdough or pretzel.
We all love our burgers a certain way. Save time on the patties by trying them in your air fryer. We promise you won’t regret it!
