How do you make Air Fryer Breakfast Sausage?

Air Fryer Breakfast Sausage is easy to make because the air-fryer does the work for you. Easy, delicious, and nutritious are what make this the perfect meal prep breakfast. Let’s get ready to make some yummy sausage! 

Gather your breakfast sausage ingredients and grab a medium-sized bowl, a tray or plate, and parchment paper. Line the tray or plate with parchment paper and set it aside for the sausage patties. Combine the sausage ingredients in the bowl and mix thoroughly. Then start forming 12 patties using the sausage mix. Place each 1/2″ breakfast sausage patty onto the lined tray or plate. Once all of your patties are made, put 6 patties in your air-fryer basket and fry at 370 degrees for 8 minutes. At the 8-minute mark, flip the patties and continue frying for another 8 minutes. Remove the first batch of cooked breakfast sausages and repeat the process with the second batch of patties. Now it’s time to make your sides. Your fruit, veggies, and boiled eggs will complete your artisanal breakfast and balance the meal with the different taste profiles. Hashtag Make Breakfast Fancy Again! 

While your second batch of sausage patties are cooking, get a medium-sized skillet and your ghee. Melt the ghee in the skillet over medium heat and add kale. Sauté the kale for 2-3 minutes. Set aside. Then get your hard-boiled eggs and fruit ready. Check on your sausage and flip if you haven’t done so. When the patties are finished cooking, put your breakfast together and you’re ready to go!

Other tips for making Air Fryer Breakfast Sausage:

  • For thoroughly cooked sausage patties, don’t overcrowd your air-fryer basket. Only cook up to 6 patties at a time. 

  • Get the best quality ground pork you can. You can also purchase ground boneless pork shoulder from your local grocer or use ground turkey.

  • Use a hand or stand mixer to mix the ground pork and seasonings. 

  • Gently flatten the 2 oz. of ground pork to form the patties. Focus on thinning the middle of the patties. The outside/edges should be fuller so your patties stay flat. 

  • Do not press your patties while flipping.
