Ninja Air Fryer Burgers Recipe

I know a lot of American people will call these air fryer hamburgers and that’s just fine. I love a hamburger as much as the next person although I bet I love my airfryer more. It doesn’t matter what types of burgers you use, you can even use frozen ones if you want, I like to make my own from scratch though which is what you’ll find in the recipe card.

Ninja foodie hamburgers are big in the states, I have some friends out there who were making them because the UK even started on their air fryer journey! I’m not sure if you can buy cheese stuffed burgers, I’ve never looked but they are simple to make and sometimes even cheaper than shop purchased ones.

Healthy Air Fryer Cheeseburgers

I’m not sure how healthy these air fryer cheeseburgers are going to be if I’m honest. It also depends on what you top them with. I normally either go for fried onions like in the pictures or I’ll have a salad. If you follow MyFitnessPal then you’ll be able to calculate everything and know exactly what calories you’re using.

Low-Calorie Air Fryer Cheeseburgers – 357 KCAL

They taste amazing, they’re easy to make and you don’t have to juggle 100 ingredients unlike other posts out there. It really is a simple air fryer burger recipe! However, I understand that people like to make sure they stay within their daily calories, and I do the same.

This air fryer cheeseburger recipe is going to set you back 357 calories. That’s for the burger, cheese, bun and fried onion. However, as I said before if you’re going to use different toppings make sure you keep this in mind.

A little tip with these air fryer cheeseburgers. You want to make sure they’re big enough so that when they’re cooked they don’t shrink. I’ve had this issue before and it sucks when the burger is half the size of the bun you’re using.

I’d also love to know if you did anything different with these burgers. Did you add some spice? I sometimes add paprika or chilli to give it a kick but that depends on who I’m cooking for. If I’m making these ninja air fryer burgers for my younger brother, I tend to make them a little milder.

  • Ninja Foodi Air Fryer
  • Mixing Bowl


  • 4 Burger Rolls
  • 400 g 5% Minced Beef
  • 1/2 small Onion
  • 80 g Light Cheddar Cheese
  • Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Dried Italian Herbs
  • 1 Dash Hot Sauce Optional


  • Cut the cheese into thin slices, enough to stack a couple on top of each other.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the lean beef mince, black pepper and herbs. Mix this all together until it is fully combined.
  • Once combined, split the mixer into 4 equal sizes.
  • Now take one of the balls of mince and take off ¼ of the mixture. Make the larger ball into a burger shape, slightly larger than your burger roll. Add 20g of cheese in the middle of the burger.
  • Now take the smaller piece of mince beef and make that into a smaller burger, big enough to cover the cheese.
  • Now squash the sides of the smaller burger into the main burger and make sure it is all sealed so the cheese can't escape.
  • Repeat this for the other 3 burgers.
  • Place them in the air fryer for 15 mins on 180°C/350°F.
  • While your burgers are cooking, peel and slice your onion and put it into a frying page with a little cooking spray and cook until the onions are golden.
  • Once the burgers are cooked, place them in the burger rolls, top them with the fried onions and enjoy. You can serve it with salad or air fryer chips.
