Air Fryer Brats Or Italian Sausage
Brats or Italian Sausage taste great when made in the Air Fryer. My Pepper Jack Cheese Brats cooked in under 15 minutes. They were juicy and tasted great. This is the only way I have been making brats and Italian sausage lately. The secret to the perfect air fryer brats or sausage is checking the temperature so you don’t overcook them.
Any type of brats or Italian sausage will turn out great.
Spray the air fryer pan with cooking oil then place the brats or Italian sausage into the pan. My Ninja Foodi has this rack which I like to use instead of my air fryer pan but I still cook them on the air fryer setting.
Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees then cook for 5 minutes.
Carefully turn the brats over and cook for 5 more minutes. Check the internal temperature by placing the thermometer in the end but inserting it to the middle of the brat or sausage. Try not to break the skin except on the end.
The internal temperature needs to be 160 degrees, not any less. If it is not 160 degrees, continue cooking in two minute increments. Try not to let the temperature get over 165 degrees for the perfectly cooked brat or sausage. Keep in mind they do not look like they do on a grill when they are at temperature but they sure do taste as good as the grill.
