  • 4 brioche buns cut in half
  • 1 pound lean ground beef 85 percent
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese thick slices

To assemble:

  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 4 leaves green leaf lettuce
  • 1 large pickle sliced
  • 1 medium red onion thinly sliced into rings
  • Burger Sauce of your choice


  • Preheat air fryer to 375 degrees F.
  • Divide by four. Shape beef mixture into four 3/4-­inch-thick patties and press shallow divot with three fingers in the center of each. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Spray air fryer basket with oil spray and put buns cut side down into the basket. Air fry for 1 minute to toast, then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Transfer the beef patties to the basket and cook for 8-12 minutes until patties register 155 degrees in the thickest part. Flipping is not required. Turn Air Fryer off and top with a slice of cheese, close and let sit for 30 more seconds to melt the cheese.
  • Assemble burger.


Beef Temperature

  • Rare 120-130ºF
  • Medium Rare 130-135ºF
  • Medium 135-140ºF
  • Medium Well 145-155ºF
  • Well Done 155ºF and up
Keep in mind that beef should be pulled from heat 3 to 10ºF lower than these temperatures to account for carryover cooking while the beef rests before serving.

Safe Internal Temperature

  • Commercial ground beef: Cook it until it reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees F for medium-well.
  • Homemade ground beef: Cook it until 130 degrees F for medium-rare.
