  • Ninja Foodi Max Multicooker - or your preferred choice of air fryer.
  • Spatula - for flipping the hamburgers halfway through cooking.


  • 4 frozen hamburger patties.
  • 1 tablespoon burger seasoning.


  • Place the frozen hamburger patties in a single layer in the basket. I was able to fit 1 pattie in my Ninja foodi, but the number you can fit will depend on the size of your air fryer you are using.
  • Air fry the frozen hamburgers at 350°F/ 176°C for 7 minutes, flip, then season with your favorite seasonings. Flipping helps them cook evenly so do not skip this step. Cook for a further 7 minutes until done (an internal read thermometer inserted on the thickest part of the burgers should read at least 160°F).
  • Once cooked, remove the hamburgers using a spatula and place them on buns. Top with cheese (if you prefer), and your favorite sauces, and toppings. Serve and enjoy!



Storage and Freezing:
  • In the refrigerator - store cooked ground beef patties in foil, plastic wrap, or suitable airtight containers in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  • Freezing - freeze the parties wrapped individually in suitable freezer containers for 5-6 months.
  • Burger seasoning - Frozen burgers can be very bland on their own so I always like to use my favorite burger seasoning. If you do not have this at hand, just use some salt and pepper and you will be good to go.
  • Make this diet-friendly - use suitable buns, toppings, and sauces for keto, gluten-free, and paleo diets.
Useful Tips:
  • The time it takes to cook the patties will depend on the size and thickness of the hamburger patties. Thicker patties take longer to cook than thinner ones. 10-15 minutes is a sweet spot, but just make sure the recommended internal minimum temperature for burgers of at least 160°F is attained.
  • Do not overcrowd, rather, place the patties in a single layer on the basket to enable them to cook evenly.
  • If you prefer to have melted cheese in your burgers, simply place a slice of cheese on each patty halfway through cooking and air fry for the remaining time.
  • Place a piece of aluminum foil or baking paper at the bottom of the air fryer basket to prevent it from smoking.
