Air Fryer Hamburgers
If you have little children or grandchildren, hold them close and hug them every chance you get. My boys are growing up too fast. There’s a lovely children’s book called Tuck Everlasting where a family drinks from a magic well and they stay that age. If I could, I would have us drink from the “magic well.” I love the age Micah and Kai are at; they are 8 and 9. They are funny, we love to play board games together every night, they can help me in the kitchen, they are the light of my life!
When I finished my last book, Keto Instant Pot, my plan was to take a break and slow down so I can enjoy my family more and focus on my Keto Coaching students. But I’ve been told this many times, “if you want to hear god laugh, tell him what you have planned!” And it couldn’t be more true in many aspects of my life.
When Erich, my publisher, called to discuss an air fryer book, I couldn’t say no. I already use my air fryer almost daily so to be honest, a Keto Air Fryer book was a destiny!
Many of you know that I love hamburgers and I have one almost daily! A breakfast burger, a bacon burger, a smothered burger with onions and mushrooms. I even had a butcher call me almost in tears because I wanted him to grind up the rib-eye steaks when we get a grass-fed cow from my client who sells grass-fed cows.
Butcherbox knows how much I LOVE hamburger too so they are doing a special deal for my readers!!!
- About Butcherbox Meat: We offer grass-fed and grass-finished beef, free range organic chicken, and heritage breed pork!

I am not a gadget girl but I would be lost without my air fryer. It makes everything so delicious! Hamburgers in the air fryer are so delicious! Moist on the inside with a caramelized outside! Everyone asks me what air fryer I love. I’ve tried them all and quite honestly, I was frustrated with the smaller ones. I love THIS one by Cuisinart. It is large enough to fit plenty of food yet it is REALLY light weight so I can move it from my pantry into the kitchen as needed. Not only that, but Cuisinart is always quick to respond if there is ever an issue. They even sent me a new Cuisinart Ice Cream maker when my beloved one died of years of weekly use!

- Place the patties in the air fryer and cook for 7 minutes for a medium-done burger, or cook longer if you prefer a more well-done burger. Place the slices of cheese on the burgers and cook another minute the to melt the cheese.

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
As I was boogie boarding I heard someone yell “Maria! Are you Maria?” This wonderful young woman ran up to me and gave me a hug for saving her. She was living a life of depression and anger. 5 years ago she reached out to me and I helped her change her life through the Keto WOE. She teared up telling me how she is now a new person free of anger and depression! She is currently a missionary in Maui.
It’s pretty cool being able to help people become their best self❤️❤️
Most people I consult are doing keto totally wrong. Get fast results with the my NEW Keto School!
