Frozen turkey burgers in the air fryer make a fast, healthy and delicious meal. Frozen turkey burgers and hamburgers can be easily cooked straight from frozen in the air fryer in under 20 minutes.
Cooking frozen foods is one of my favorite ways to use the air fryer. Everything cooks up with a wonderful crispy outside while staying hot and tender on the inside.

How to make frozen turkey burgers in the air fryer
- Place frozen turkey burger patties in the air fryer basket or tray.
- Cook at 380 degrees for 8 minutes, flip the burgers and continue cooking for 7-8 more minutes. Make sure internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
- Carefully remove and serve with your favorite toppings.
These are great on their own, cut up on a salad, wrap and of course served on a bun with toppings. Some tasty topping ideas are:
- Sauteed mushrooms and onions
- Sliced tomato
- Ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise
- Boom boom sauce
- Zesty sauce
- Don’t stack the burger patties in the air fryer. You want the hot air to be able to circulate around them for even cooking.
- If you are worried about them sticking, be sure to not spray your basket with an aerosol cooking spray like Pam. This could damage the coating. Use an oil mister to lightly coat the basket.
- For a little extra flavor, add some seasoning to the tops of the turkey burgers before cooking. Salt and pepper, Montreal seasoning, Old Bay , and chicken seasoning are great choices.
- Cook time may vary depending on the brand of burger you cook. Just make sure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
- If you would like to catch some of the drippings, add aluminum foil to the bottom of the air fryer basket. (Under the basket.)
- If you want to add cheese, completely cook the burgers, lay cheese on top of them and then close the air fryer without it being on. Let sit for 2-3 minutes to melt.

How to store
These are great for meal prep through the week. If you want to cook several turkey burgers at a time, you can save the leftovers and reheat for another day.
Let them completely cool before storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 4 days. They can be reheated in the air fryer, microwave or oven for a fast meal.
