Can I Cook Sausages in the Air Fryer?
Yes, you can absolutely fry up sausages in the air fryer! When you fry sausages in a skillet, sometimes it’s hard to gauge the perfect timing. A lot of times, the ends may turn out burnt. Not in the air fryer!
Be sure to use parchment paper. I get mine on Amazon. That makes it safe to cook bacon in the air fryer. It soaks up the excess grease and will help keep the air fryer from smoking.
How Do You Cook Italian Sausage and Breakfast Sausage in the Air Fryer?
- Place parchment paper on the air fryer basket.
- Add the sausages.

How Long Do You Cook Sausages in an Air Fryer?
Can You Put Aluminum Foil in the Air Fryer?
Yes, in general you can. I wouldn’t recommend using it for sausage because of the grease and potential to smoke.
