How to make juicy air fryer turkey burgers
This is a step-by-step to show you how we make this recipe and just how easy air frying them can be!
- Place ground turkey burgers in the air fryer basket.
- Turn heat to 400° and timer to 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165° degrees F. with a meat thermometer
- When timer ends, if you prefer cheeseburgers, simply place a slice of american cheese on the burgers and place back in air fryer without turning the heat back on. (The leftover heat from cooking should gently melt the cheese to the burger after 1-2 minutes.)
Burger topping ideas
If you love a burger patty by itself, you’re ready to eat! However, if you love to add fun toppings or are looking for new ideas on how to top your burgers, you’ll love the burger bar I styled, where I gave a giant list of burger topping ideas! But some of our favorite toppings are:
- barbecue sauce
- red onion
For this burger below, I simply added cheese and dried jalapeños to add a kick and a crunch to my burger. It was absolutely DELICIOUS!
Now if you want to make the ULTIMATE turkey burger, and add some flair… you will love using glazed donuts for the buns like when we made donut burgers!

- Since you’re using the air fryer anyway, you might as well make these air fryer eggplant fries before the burgers go in! Snack on them while the burgers cook or serve as a side dish!
