The Best Air Fryer Turkey Burgers

Air frying burgers has completely changed my life! It’s exquisite how the air fryer employs circulating air to create a delectable crust while keeping the inside succulently juicy and wet. Every time I cook these turkey burgers, the outside is lovely and the inside is tender and juicy.

So much of the time, fowl will dry out before the insides have a chance to finish cooking. This is where the air fryer comes in. The pushed air browns and crisps the food in the same way that an oven would, but much faster.

Allowing the meat to cook and stay juicy on the inside. All of this was accomplished with very little oil or fat.

Tricks for Juicy Turkey Burgers

Unlike beef, chicken must be cooked to the proper temperature for safety, therefore use a meat thermometer to check the temperature once the cooking procedure is completed. The temperature should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit (the same goes for ground chicken).

The burgers should be chilled first to keep their shape and allow the flavors to mingle. You can skip this step if you’re in a hurry, but be delicate while flipping them.

If you can only find “extra lean” turkey or chicken, add some fat for the best results. In our standard turkey burgers, a tablespoon of olive oil or some finely chopped bacon are favorites.

Above all, avoid overcooking. An instant-read thermometer is highly recommended! Meat is costly, and this little investment guarantees the best cook!

Making Turkey Burgers in the Air Fryer

Burgers made with fresh ground turkey are easier to shape than those made with frozen ground turkey. They’ll come out crusty on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside if you air fry them. Delish!

  1. Mix: In a medium sized bowl combine the turkey, garlic, salt, pepper and a Worcestershire sauce.
  2. Shape: Shape into four patties keeping them ½ inch thick because they will shrink.
  3. Fry: Add two patties to the basket and cook at 360 degrees for 7 minutes. Flip the patties and continue to cook for about 5 minutes or until cooked throughout. Internal temperature should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Perfect Turkey Burger Variations

Another nice thing about turkey burgers is how easy they are to customize. And just like any burger you can make a bunch of them and freeze them for quick dinners on a busy night.

  • Add Ins  Turkey burgers are perfect for sneaking in vegetables. Finely chopped mushrooms, peppers, onions, or shredded zucchini add flavor and moisture to the turkey.
  • Seasonings: These burgers have a great flavor thanks to the simple ingredients of garlic and Worcestershire sauce. Other seasonings, on the other hand, are limitless. Barbecue seasonings, taco seasonings, ranch seasonings, Greek spices, and even Italian spices would be amazing.
  • Toppings: Again, the options for topping these turkey burgers are limitless. Tomatoes, lettuce, bacon, BBQ Sauce, avocado, sprouts, and whatever else strikes your fancy on this particular day!
  • Cheese: Don’t forget the cheese! Swiss, cheddar, pepper jack, feta, blue cheese, and Monterey jack are all favorites.
