  • Air fry at 350°F/ 176°C for 7 minutes, flip each patty, and season the other side. Air fry for a further 8 minutes until cooked through and the burgers have attained an internal temperature of least165°F. Once cooked, remove using a spatula and set aside on a plate.
  • Serve the turkey burgers while still hot on buns (or low carb buns if you prefer), with your favorite toppings, slice on salads, or simply enjoy them as they are.



Useful Tips:
  • Because frozen burgers have a high-fat content and will release some fat during cooking, you do not need to spray or grease your air fryer basket in advance.
  • The time it takes to air fry the patties will depend on size: bigger patties take longer. 10-15 minutes is a sweet spot, but as mentioned, make sure the internal minimum temperature of 165°F is attained.
  • Do not overcrowd the frozen turkey burgers in the basket, but rather place them in a single layer to enable them to cook evenly. The Ninja foodi 8 Quart tender-crisp will fit 2 medium-sized patties or one large one, but the number of patties you can fit will depend on the type of air fryer you have.
  • Place a piece of aluminum foil at the bottom of the basket, as it helps catch the grease and prevent smoking.
