Air fryer hamburgers don’t get that cripy outside like you can get on a grill, but are still super tasty. They are jucier than fying them in a skillet. They are also less messy than the skillet method. There is no grease spatters all over the stove top and kitchen. Plus, the air fryer basket is a breeze to clean out!
Once the patties cook in the air fryer, you can place cheese on the patties. Then you put the basket in the air fryer with it turned off. The residuial heat will melt the cheese. If you did this with the air fryer on, it would judt blow the cheese off the patties.
If you want smaller patties, you could make 4 patties instead of 3. Then just cook them for about 8 minutes instead of the 12 minutes.
