Frozen Turkey Burger Air Fryer

I know, it’s hard to believe that frozen food in an air fryer would come out good, but it does. I mean, frozen chicken in an Instant Pot worked great so we thought, it’s gotta’ be good.

Here are a few questions you might have before you get going:

How long do you cook a frozen turkey burger in the air fryer?

14 minutes works perfectly for us. Of course if you like them really crispy you could add another minute or two. To keep it juicy don’t overcook.

How do you cook frozen turkey burgers?

You can broil them in the oven, but I think they’re better to air fry. Instant Pot hamburgers come out quite well too when defrosted.

Can you cook frozen burgers in air fryer?

Yep, this is how to cook frozen burgers in an air fryer. That uses ground beef but prepared turkey or chicken patties work well too.

You literally just throw them right in, no prep required.

This is what you’ll need to pick up to get ready for this meal.

  • These were the frozen turkey burgers used, there are several brands out there and most are the same size.
  • I like to use a light coating of non stick spray too so they don’t stick.

How do you make frozen turkey burgers taste better?

Dress them up of course! Think about:

  1. Lettuce
  2. Sliced tomatoes
  3. Ketchup and mustard
  4. Mayonnaise
  5. Fry sauce is yummy

Now these aren’t for ground turkey. If your meat is defrosted you’d want closer to an 8 minute burger cook time. At 4 minutes flip them over. Test at the end to ensure they reach 165 degrees F.

Internal temperature of 165 degrees will ensure the very middle is not raw and safe to eat. Just sprinkle with salt and pepper if you like, or leave burger patties plain in air fryer basket.

Either way all pieces should stay in a single layer and not overlap or they won’t cook properly.

With preheating time this will take about 15 minutes total, talk about a quick dinner idea! To improve your experience I do recommend spraying your basket lightly with non stick spray.

Time needed: 14 minutes.
