How to cook breakfast sausage in the air fryer
Of all the recipes, I have made, surely, air fryer breakfast sausage is the easiest.
The minimum you need is your sausage links (or patties) and the air fryer.
If you are cooking breakfast sausage in the air fryer, cook the sausage for 8-10 minutes @ 360 degrees. This is assuming you are cooking a common breakfast sausage that has a similar width to a finger. For brats and thicker sausages you will need to cook longer, as long as 14 minutes, but start checking after 10. Cook until a safe temperature is reached on your meat thermometer.
Cooking Sausage in the Air Fryer Tips
For easy clean up, consider laying down parchment paper. You can poke some holes in the parchment paper to allow for circulation under the sausages and air fryer basket.
You can also lay down aluminum foil in the air fryer and place the sausages on top. However, be careful because the grease released from cooking the sausages in the air fryer might circulate up and hit the heating element causing smoke.
