What You’ll Need to Make Air Fryer Cheeseburgers
Most people may not think about it, but there are many different types of ground beef to choose from. Overall, the difference lies between the ratio of fat and what part of the cow the meat is coming from. The leaner the meat, the less fat you’ll have. Here’s a quick chart to help you choose the best meat for your cheeseburgers:
- Ground Beef (70% lean/30% fat)
- Ground Chuck (80% lean/20% fat)
- Ground Round (85% lean/15% fat)
- Ground Sirloin (90% lean/10% fat)
If you’re looking for the lightest and healthiest beef, go with the ground round or sirloin.
Worcestershire or Steak sauce
Worcestershire sauce is going to give you four tastes in one: tangy, savory, sweet, and salty. Some people don’t like it by itself, but when added to a meat like ground beef, it’s definitely a flavor popper. Steak sauce can be used in replacement of Worcestershire because it adds a similar flavor.
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder – seasoning staples – are used to enhance the flavor of these air fryer cheeseburgers. Although I have a measurement suggestion in the recipe below, add more or less according to your personal preference.
Of course, this is what’s gonna make your burgers cheeseburgers. Consider switching it up by adding Pepper Jack or Mozzarella.
How to Make Air Fryer Cheeseburgers
First, preheat your air fryer for 5 minutes at 375°F. Then, gather your ingredients, combine them all in a bowl and pat the mixture out into patties. Once it has been preheated, place the burgers into the fryer basket and cook them for 7 minutes. Place a slice of cheese on each patty and cook for an additional minute.
You can’t go wrong with adding the typical veggies toppings like lettuce, tomato, red onions, and pickles. If you want to go a bit further with it, consider adding mushrooms and jalapenos.
Again, depending on your preferences, you may want to add mayo, ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce, or this amazing honey chipotle BBQ sauce.
