Can You Cook Sausage In An Air Fryer
Yes, absolutely! In fact air fried sausage is The Best. The outer sausage casing gets that slight crispness while the inside remains super juicy.
Use whatever type of sausage you prefer. I like a flavorful chicken sausage so that is what I typically use. But beef or pork sausage cook up nicely in an air fryer as well.
How Long Do You Cook Sausage In An Air Fryer
The cook time will vary slightly depending on the type of sausage you are cooking and what air fryer you use.
This recipe is using a pre-cooked chicken sausage air fried in a 10 qt Nuwave air fryer. I cook the sausages for about 10 minutes.
The peppers take longer than 10 minutes so we start those in the air fryer first.
