Step 1: Season your burger

If you have any desired seasonings, season your Beyond Burger prior to cooking.

I like it simple — if I season at all, I only use salt and pepper

Step 2: Cook the burger

All you have to do is place the Beyond Burger in the air fryer basket, then set the temperature to 400 degrees F for 8-10 minutes. There is no need to flip — it will come out cooked on both sides!

Note: If you want to add cheese, add it during the last minute of cooking so it gets nice and melted but doesn’t overcook.

Step 3: Assemble and serve

Finally, add your air fryer Beyond Burger to your bun of choice and add your favorite toppings!

I chose to top my burger with cheddar cheese, onions, lettuce, pickles, and ketchup, and it tasted just like a restaurant burger!
