I’m a cheeseburger person, not a burger person.
I’m not the only one, right?
There is just something ridiculously satisfying about biting into a perfectly cooked burger and your taste buds getting hugged right away with ooey, gooey melted cheese.
So, it should be no surprise to y’all that I fell in love with cheese-stuffed burgers when my husband started making them at home years ago. We experimented with different cheeses, different types of toppings and methods of cooking these tasty cheeseburgers in order to figure out how to make them perfect for us.
My husband loves his grill and he will get out on the patio and grill all throughout the year. However, I’m not interested in standing in the cold to grill anything.
I stick to the kitchen for all of my cooking during the winter which is where these Air Fryer Stuffed Cheeseburger Sliders came from.
YES! Cheese-Stuffed burgers cooked in an air-fryer are delicious!
While normal size cheeseburgers are fine, I love making these into sliders with Martin’s Famous Party Potato Rolls. These potato rolls are so good and they’re the perfect size for these Air Fryer Stuffed Cheeseburger Sliders.
With these Air Fryer Stuffed Cheeseburger Sliders being smaller I can cook at least 3-4 at a time in the air-fryer.
Plus, to be honest, the little slider sizes are perfect for my son and I. Thomas, on the other hand, eats about 3 of them haha.
We are pretty simple with it comes to seasonings when we make cheeseburgers.
I think that a little garlic powder, salt, and pepper is really all you need to season these before they’re cooked. Of course, you can season them however you’d like!
Let’s talk cheese real quick before y’all get to the recipe below.
There are so many different cheeses to choose from out there. While I always encourage everyone to experiment in the kitchen to figure out exactly what they like, I thought I’d let you know what cheeses we have found work best for these Air Fryer Stuffed Cheeseburger Sliders.
My first choice is fresh mozzarella. No block mozzarella, no pre-shredded mozzarella, fresh, sometimes pre-sliced mozzarella cheese is my go-to cheese for stuffed cheeseburgers.
The second choice for stuffed cheeseburger cheese would have to be sliced American cheese. Sliced American cheese folded over onto itself to make a little cube and stuffed into a burger melts very nicely!
Third, we’re going to have to go with gouda cheese. I find gouda a little hard to slice for burgers but cutting it into cubes for stuffed burgers works out pretty well.
If you’re serving these at a game day party, a “build your own slider” station would be awesome.
Just set out a ton of different toppings and as the fresh, hot sliders are ready, guest can grab one and make their very own sliders.
If I was going to be making these for a party, I’d have the patties already stuffed and seasoned ahead of time. Then when guest started to arrive, I’d start cooking them up in the air-fryer. If you have a lot of guests and need to make a lot, you would start ahead of time and keep them warm in the oven as you’re making them and then set them out when it’s time to eat.
As far as toppings go for Air Fryer Stuffed Cheeseburger Sliders, the sky is the limit. Really, you can top these sliders with anything that your heart desires.
I like lettuce, tomato, ketchup and mayo on my Air Fryer Stuffed Cheeseburger Sliders.
However, Thomas loves extra American cheese, pickle slices, and mustard.
What would you top your sliders with?
