We cooked Aidells Smoked Chicken Sausages in our air fryer for this tutorial, but you can also cook breakfast sausage or linguisa. Keep in mind that you may need to add a couple of minutes of cook time if making a larger sausage.

How long to cook sausages in an air fryer?

  • For smoked sausages, you will want to cook them for 14 minutes.
  • For uncooked sausages (like breakfast sausage), cook them for 20 minutes, or they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

What temperature do I air fry sausages?

We have found that 360 degrees Fahrenheit is the best temperature for air frying sausages. However, if your air fryer only has one temperature setting (usually, 400 degrees), that will work, too.
