Air Fryer Sausage Links for breakfast
Growing up, I remember the fun times our family had camping. I don't remember the first time I tried sausage links, but I remember them as part of our family camp outs.
My dad would make a fire, and we would cook them on a stick or skewer, or sometimes, he would cook them in a frying pan, directly over the fire. Which is why I was excited to try them in my air fryer.
I wanted to keep the flavor and crispness of the sausage, but without the sogginess of a microwave, or the splatter from the frying pan on the stove top. The air fryer sausage links checked all the boxes!
How to make Air Fryer Sausage Links
I used one pound of Farmer John sausage links. I keep them frozen so it is easier to keep them on hand for when we want them. One pound of links was 14 sausages, and they easily fit into my Cosori Air Fryer.
Preheat the oven to 370 degrees Fahrenheit. After removing the frozen sausage links from the packaging, break them apart. Place them in the air fryer basket, without stacking them.
Cook at 370 degrees Fahrenheit for about 12-15 minutes, turning them over half way through cooking. Total cooking time may vary my a minute or two, depending on how crispy you like your sausage links. Allow a few extra minutes if you have thicker sausage links, or if you are placing more than one package in the basket.
Remove from the oven and serve while they are hot.
FAQ's about Air Fryer Sausage Links
How do I know if the sausages are done?
Cook the sausages until they are well browned on the outside. You can cut into one to make sure it is thoroughly cooked on the inside.
Do I need spray the basket first?
No. The sausage links came right off the basket when I cooked them, and clean up was very easy!
How do I know they are done?
Sausage should not have any pink on the inside when you cut or bite into it. If it is still pink, cook it a few more minutes.
