Ingredients needed for making Air Fryer Breakfast Sausage

  • Sausage links or sausage patties

Supplies needed for cooking breakfast sausages:

What type of breakfast sausage cook:

When you are planning this recipe, you can use any of the different sausages. We will show you how to make frozen sausages from the freezer, fresh sausages, or even pre-cooked breakfast sausages (the Johnsonville maple syrup ones are tasty!).

If you like it, you can also use this for turkey or chicken sausage instead of pork sausage.

However, this is not for ground pork sausage like the Jimmy Dean tube of sausage.

How to temp air fryer breakfast sausage links:

When you think the breakfast sausage is done, take a meat thermometer and stick it into the meat or scan it and make sure the meat has come up to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F or 71 degrees C.

How to make Fresh Breakfast Sausage in the Air Fryer:

Place the sausage links in the bottom of the air fryer basket. Set the temperature to 400°F or 200°C and air fry the sausage for 8 to 10 minutes. You can place a slice of bread in the bottom of the air fryer basket to catch any grease drippings.


Remember to shake the basket or flip the sausages halfway through cooking time to ensure the sausages are brown and cook evenly on all sides.

Final Thoughts

This is such a great way to make breakfast sausage instead of baking it in the oven or on the stove, just pop it in the air fryer and have it done in no time and no prep time needed.

Plus, if you want to avoid the extra grease, you can put a piece of bread in the bottom of the air fryer basket and it will absorb the excess grease for easy cleanup.

  • Perfect. I am handicapped and cannot stand much and only a few steps at a time which i bought an air fryer. Too many ingredients make it impossible just to do the mese en place. I was an active cook going to cooking school for years but those days are over as age and physical overcame me.
