Air Fryer Frozen Veggie Burgers

Today we’re going to be sharing with you how to cook your favourite frozen veggie burgers in the air fryer.

I don’t know about you, but I love veggie burgers. I love the taste and texture of them, and I love how crispy they are once cooked.

I think veggie burgers get a bad reputation.

Meat eaters are always complaining that they are bland, boring and missing their meat.

As many of you know, I was once a vegetarian and still have an addiction to a lot of vegetarian food.

My husband will complain at my cooking sometimes when I go several meals without adding any meat. But I often forget that the meat is not there and fall in love with vegetables.

And that is EXACTLY what should happen with a veggie burger, especially when you cook your veggie burger in the air fryer.

It shouldn’t be bland and boring and instead should excite you. Quite often it will be bland and boring because of the texture.

Too much liquid and not enough crunch and that is why cooking frozen veggie burgers in the air fryer is truly magical.

The air fryer will give them that amazing crunchy texture without it feeling wet and inedible.

You will think that it has been deep fried, when in fact it has just been cooked in the air fryer.

You can then serve it as you wish with your favourite sides and maybe a favourite burger bun.

Or can I recommend you serve it with your favourite air fryer frozen French fries as they can give you a cheap takeaway on a budget.

Frozen Veggie Burgers In The Air Fryer

You can use any type of frozen veggie burgers in the air fryer. I love Linda McCartney and her frozen vegetarian range as it is truly delicious. You could use another brand, or maybe a supermarkets own brand.

Or, nothing is stopping you freezing your own homemade veggie burgers and cooking them from frozen.

Then while in a hurry to get lunch or dinner on the table, break open the packaging and load them into the air fryer.

Cooking Air Fryer Frozen Veggie Burgers

Air Fryer Frozen Veggie Burgers step by step air fryer recipe

Cooking frozen veggie burgers in the air fryer is so EASY. Because of the size of the average air fryer basket you should be able to cook four frozen veggie burgers at once in your air fryer.

  • Load the frozen veggie burgers into your air fryer basket making sure that they don’t overlap. If they overlap, they will end up stuck together and you will end up with soggy veggie burgers.
  • Set the temperature to 180c and the time to 8 minutes and place the basket back in the air fryer and let the air fryer do its magic.
  • When it beeps you have delicious crispy air fryer veggie burgers. Enjoy!

Then it’s a case of thinking up what you’re going to serve them with. Though when we originally tested this frozen veggie burgers recipe for you, we dipped them in a homemade ranch dressing and treated them like our Air Fryer Zucchini Fritters.

We tested this air fryer frozen veggie burgers recipe in both our air fryer oven and our Philips Air Fryer XL and they were perfectly crispy after 8 minutes. Though you could cook a lot more at once in the air fryer oven.
If using your own homemade veggie burgers in the air fryer from frozen, remember that yours might be thicker than shop bought so adjust the time to 10 minutes.
