Air Fryer Beef and Bacon Burger

air fryer beef and bacon burger
There is nothing like the comfort of a burger loaded up with your favourite sauces and salads! What makes this one extra special is that it's all made in the air fryer.

Burger Patties

  • 500g beef mince
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (I used fresh but you can use any)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Spray oil


  • 4 slices cheese (I used Gouda)
  • 4 brioche buns
  • 4 middle rashes bacon
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • Small tin canned beetroot slices
  • 6 gherkins sliced
  • Mayonnaise
  • Equal parts ketchup/half American mustard mixed to create “orange sauce”
  • Preheat air fryer to 180c (I run it empty for 5 minutes).
  • Cook bacon in air fryer 6-8 minutes or until golden. Once cooked set aside on a plate.
  • Combine burger ingredients using your hands. Split the mixture into 4 parts and create patties.
  • Spray patties with oil and cook in the air fryer for 8-10 minutes. Once cooked, add a slice of cheese on each patty, cook for an additional 1 minute. Add bacon to each patty, cook additional 1 minute.
  • Remove patties from air fryer, heat brioche buns for 2 minutes – This is a great trick that has your bread come out crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside!
  • Load up your brioche buns with the patties, salad and condiments.
