How long to Cook Turkey Burgers in Air Fryer

Air Fryer Turkey Burgers (6 to 8 Servings)   

  • Author: Bobby


  • Ground turkey, 1¾ pounds
  • Half cup of Italian seasoning
  • One-third cup of mayonnaise
  • Two tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • One tablespoon of minced garlic
  • One tablespoon of onion powder
  • One tablespoon of kosher salt
  • Half teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • Half teaspoon of poultry seasoning


Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper, coat it with non-stick spray, then combine the ground turkey with the spice and seasoning in another bowl. Mix gently, ensuring to not over-handle the meat as you mix, and keep the bowl and your hands cold throughout.

When fully combined, cut a portion of the seasoned ground turkey, roll it into a ball, and form into a patty with a slight dimple in the middle. Repeat until you have six to eight equal-sized turkey patties properly spaced on the lined baking sheet. Then, cover the tray with foil or parchment and chill for 15 minutes in the fridge.

Preheat the air fryer to 350F, and grease the basket with non-stick spray. Then, take the turkey patties out and arrange them in the basket. Work in batches if the basket is too small, and keep the tray with the raw patties in the fridge until cooking time.

Cook the turkey patties for 10 to 15 minutes depending on the thickness, flipping once at the halfway mark. You want the turkey burgers to reach a golden crisp before flipping them. Also, use a meat thermometer to check for final internal doneness of 165F after flipping. For turkey cheeseburgers, add a cheese slice to the patties at the final minute of cooking.

Rest the turkey burgers for five minutes, then arrange in buns, top as desired, and serve.
