Frozen sausages in the air fryer

Weather their Richmond or Alid’s own, here’s how to cook frozen sausages in an air fryer.

The air fryer quickly cooks the sausages evenly, ensuring they are juicy on the inside with a slightly crispy exterior. This method eliminates the need for thawing, making it a time-saving option for busy days. Follow this guide for perfectly cooked frozen sausages every time.

Guide to perfect Frozen Sausages in an Air Fryer

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 180°C. If your air fryer doesn’t have a pre-heat function, simply add two minutes to the cooking time before adding the fish fingers.
  2. Place the frozen sausages in the air fryer basket. Spread them out in a single layer, making sure they are not touching. This allows the hot air to circulate around each sausage, cooking them evenly.
  3. Cook the sausages for about 15-20 minutes. Halfway through the cooking time, open the air fryer basket and turn the sausages to ensure they are cooked evenly on all sides.
  4. The sausages are done when they are evenly browned If you have a fancy air fryer with a food thermometer, you’re looking for a temperature of at least 71°C on the inside. Depending on their size and the type of sausages, you may need to adjust the cooking time slightly.
  5. Once cooked, carefully remove the sausages from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Frozen Sausages

  • Ensure the sausages are not overcrowded in the air fryer basket. Good air circulation is crucial for even cooking and browning.
  • Turning the sausages halfway through the cooking process ensures they cook evenly and get a nice colour all around.
