How to prepare Air fryer hamburger
To make air fryer hamburgers, combine ground beef and pork in a bowl 1, then add salt 2, pepper, and grated Grana Padano DOP cheese 3.
Also add the thyme 4 and mix with your hands to obtain a homogeneous mixture 5. Place a circular pastry cutter with a diameter of 3.5'' on a sheet of parchment paper and fill it with 4 oz of the mixture 6.
Compact the meat with the back of a spoon or a meat mallet, depending on the desired consistency 7. Gently remove the pastry cutter 8 and proceed in the same way to form the other 3 burgers. At this point, cut the parchment paper into squares to separate the burgers and handle them more easily 9.
Place the hamburgers in a 4.4 Qt air fryer using parchment paper to assist, then remove it 10. Cook 2 burgers at a time at 390°F for 10 minutes, flipping them halfway through 11. Your air-fried hamburgers are ready to be enjoyed as desired 12!
How to store
Air fryer hamburgers can be stored in the refrigerator for a maximum of 2 days in an airtight container.

If you prefer a rare cooking, you can cook the burgers for 8-9 minutes!
You can flavor the air fryer hamburgers with sage, rosemary, oregano, or marjoram instead of thyme, or replace the Grana Padano with Pecorino or a mix of both cheeses.
