How to cook sausages in an air fryer?
Why use an air fryer?
An air fryer is an incredibly versatile and convenient kitchen appliance. Here are five great reasons to use one in your home:
What type of sausages to cook in an air fryer
Air fryer sausages provide a healthier alternative to greasy pan-frying and can be cooked perfectly in an air fryer. This method of cooking not only brings out the best flavours from your favourite sausages and is incredibly convenient.
With air fryers, you don’t have to wait for a pan of oil to heat up, as air frying works with air and relatively low temperatures. The air fryer has such precise temperature control that it can cook your sausages just as you want them. Making air fryer sausages at home, a simpler, healthier process, has never been easier.
You can use any type of sausage for your air fryer just check them after 10 minutes of cooking. When cooked use them in my sausage curry pie recipe!
What temperature and how long to cook air fryer sausages?
I set my Tefal 3-in-1 air fryer to 180 degrees celsius and timed it for 15 minutes. I checked them after 13 minutes, but they weren’t quite done enough or golden, so I added an extra 2 minutes, and they came out perfect,
TIP: The time stated depends on the size of your sausages. I used thick Cumberland sausages for this recipe. If you use chipolatas or smaller sausages, check the time after 10 minutes.
TIP: No need to preheat or oil the sausages.
Can you reheat sausages in an air fryer?
Yes, of course. Just pop them in at the same temperature or at 200 degrees celsius and heat for 2 minutes. If I wanted to reheat my sausages, I would be more inclined to pop them in the microwave to reheat them.
