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.

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

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.
