Air Fryer Sausages Recipe

Yields: Depends on number of sausages
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10-14 minutes


  • Your favorite sausages (pork, chicken, vegetarian options work too!)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (optional)


  • Air fryer
  • Tongs



  • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).

Prep the sausages (optional):

  • For extra browning and a little crisp, lightly brush the sausages with olive oil.
  • For traditional cooking, you can skip the oil.

Prick the raw sausages (if applicable):

  • If you’re using raw sausages, poke a few holes in the casings using a fork or knife.
  • This prevents them from bursting in the air fryer.
  • Skip this step if using pre-cooked sausages.

Place in the air fryer:

  • Add the sausages to the air fryer basket in a single layer.
  • Ensure they aren’t overcrowded for even cooking.

Air fry:

  • Raw sausages: Cook for 10-14 minutes, flipping halfway through. They’re done when they reach an internal temperature of 160°F (71°C) and are nicely browned.
  • Pre-cooked sausages: Cook for 5-7 minutes or until heated through and browned to your liking.


  • Remove sausages carefully with tongs and enjoy immediately with your favorite sides.


  • Type matters: Cooking times may vary based on the size and type of sausage you’re using. Thicker sausages and raw sausages will need slightly longer.
  • Shake it up: Around the halfway mark, you can give the air fryer basket a good shake to help with even browning.
  • Flavor variations: Try tossing your sausages with your favorite seasonings or a bit of sauce before air frying.
  • No poking pre-cooked: Skip pricking any pre-cooked sausage varieties!

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve with mustard, ketchup, or your favorite dipping sauces.
  • Enjoy with a side of roasted vegetables.
  • Make a classic sausage and mash.
  • Put them in a bun for an easy hot dog style meal.
