Recipe Tips

  • I recommend using a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the sausages. The internal temperature should be at least 75°C (170°F).
  • Be wary of the size of your sausages, as thinner or thicker sausages might require slight cooking time adjustments. The type I used in this recipe was roughly 2cm (0.8 in) thick.
  • Make sure you do not stack the sausages or overcrowd the air fryer. Doing either of these will cause longer cooking times and more inconsistent cooking.
  • Pricking the sausages with a fork or knife will help reduce the chance of the sausages exploding. One downside is that it can cause the meat to go dryer than usual.
  • The cooking oil is optional but will prevent the sausages from sticking to the air fryer basket.
  • You will need to double-check your packet of sausages, but most good-quality sausages should be keto, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly.
