Recipe Tips

  • You can slightly prick the skin of the sausages to help prevent them from exploding. A downside to pricking the skin is the inside of the sausage can dry out.
  • To ensure that your meat is cooked correctly, use a meat thermometer. The internal temperature should be roughly 75°C (170°F).
  • Cook in batches rather than overload the air fryer. A single layer of sausages will get the best and most consistent cook.
  • I used regular sausages in this recipe, so you may need to adjust the cooking time if you have thick or thin sausages.
  • The oil is optional, but it does help achieve a better cook and helps stop the sausages from sticking to the air fryer basket.
  • Most sausages should be gluten-free, keto, and paleo-friendly, but it is best to check with the butcher or packaging.
  • If your air fryer starts to smoke, add a little bit of water to the bottom of the basket. The smoke is likely caused by sausage grease burning as it hits the bottom of the air fryer.
