These healthy turkey burgers cooked in your air fryer are so juicy and taste like they were cooked on a grill.  They are a delicious, low carb and keto meal you can serve very quickly any time you are craving a burger.


  • 1 lb. ground turkey,  93% lean
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar free chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons burger seasoning*
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese


  1. Combine all ingredients except turkey and cheese.  Stir well. Mix in ground turkey.
  2. Rub a little olive oil in your fingers and form turkey into 4 equal size patties.  Make a small indentation in the center.
  3. Put in freezer for about 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat air fryer to 375°F.  
  5. Spray fryer basket with non stick cooking spray.
  6. Add patties, close lid and fry for 7 minutes, gently flip patties and continue to cook for another 7 minutes.
  7. Test patties with meat thermometer.  They are done if it registers 165°F.  If not done, cook for another minute or two and test again.**
  8. Turn off fryer.  Put a slice of cheese on patties while they are still in fryer and cheese will slightly melt.
  9. Place turkey burger on choice of roll and add as many topping as you want.


*Choose any all purpose seasoning that you like. If you want to combine some spices, mix 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon paprika and salt and pepper to taste.

**Since there are many different models of air fryers, the cook time will vary.  Use your meat thermometer to test for doneness (165°F). 

*** You can make my Keto Rolls with Yeast or purchase your favorite low carb/keto roll.  If you want to go bread free, use lettuce leaves as a wrap, and still use the other toppings on the burger. (Nutrition information is for turkey burgers and cheese only).
