Air Fryer Cooking

I’m still fairly new to air fryer cooking, but I am loving it! An air fryer is essentially a mini convention oven, so it is excellent at removing moisture from foods and creating a crispy exterior.

Many people think an air fryer is a deep fryer, but it is not. Just think of an air fryer as a small oven.

Recipe Highlights

  • This recipe is grain-free, gluten-free, and so easy.
  • Turkey burgers can be served on a gluten-free bun. Or, for a low-carb option, serve the burgers on a salad or on top of spiralized zucchini noodles.
  • You can meal prep these burgers and re-heat them throughout the week. Or, freeze the cooked burgers and serve them at a later date.

Yes, absolutely! But, check out my Air Fryer Hamburgers recipe for exact cooking times.

Why do you put water in the bottom of the air fryer?

By putting water in the bottom of the air fryer, it will keep any grease from smoking.

What is the best air fryer?

There are a ton of them on the market. I have owned several, and each one was a little bit different. For a basic, entry-level model, I like this air fryer.

Where do you get your buns?

I buy grain-free, gluten-free buns from the freezer section of my local natural foods market.

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup almond flour (or your favorite flour)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano


  1. Spray the basket of an air-fryer lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add the water to the bottom of the air fryer. This will keep any grease from smoking during the cooking process.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, egg, almond flour, sea salt, black pepper, garlic, and oregano. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together and form four patties.
  4. Place the patties in the air fryer basket and set the time to 360°F for 12-14 minutes, or until an instant read thermometer reads 165°F.


Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Or, you can freeze the cooked burgers for up to 2 months.
